SEQUIM — Sequim may have set or tied the school’s all-time service aces record in a 25-8, 25-15, 25-10 win over Bremerton on Thursday, according to longtime Sequim volleyball coach Jennie Weber Heilman.
“We had 28 aces which might be a team record or tied with a team record, at least with side-out scoring,” she said. “There was a state tournament game against Selah back in 2002 that went five sets and I think we had 27 aces.”
Weber Heilman said the winless Knights didn’t offer much fight.
“I was curious and we only received 23 [Bremerton] serves in three games, they were missing serves and we got some runs with aces,” she said.
“Arianna [Stoval] had a seven-point serving run in the first game and five were aces.” Stovall finished 14 of 18 on serves with 10 aces and a kill.
Sydney Hegtvedt also put together a seven-point run with three aces in the third game. Hegtvedt served 9 for 9 with one perfect pass.
Kendall Hastings had a good match, Weber Heilman said.
“Kendall was 8 of 8 on serve with five aces. She also had five perfect passes and considering we only passed 23 balls, that’s a good amount. Plus eight kills, two stuff blocks and four digs.
Jolene Vaara added two aces and five assists, while Sydney Clark served 10 for 10 with three aces and a pair of assists.
Sequim (4-2, 4-3) visits second-place Kingston (5-1, 5-2) on Tuesday.
