SPORTS: Crescent volleyball team warms up for rival Neah Bay by beating Sequim JV 3-1

JOYCE — The Crescent volleyball team used a 3-1 nonleague victory over the Sequim JV on Monday as a tune-up for a showdown with Neah Bay later this week.

The Loggers, 9-2 overall and 3-1 in the North Olympic League, will host defending champion Neah Bay (2-1 in league) for the league championship Thursday.

The Red Devils, who beat Crescent the first time the two teams played this year, have three league matches left while the Loggers have two.

As a warm-up for the title battle, the Loggers beat Sequim 26-24, 23-25, 25-17, 25-16.

Crescent came out a little slow in the match but by the end was dominating, Crescent coach Alex Baker said.

Mikela Williams led the Loggers with seven kills and four serving aces while Sara Moore had five kills and six aces.

Bonnie Hazelett wasn’t far behind with five kills and three aces while setter Rachel Bowen earned four aces and had a kill.

“Rachel did a good job of controlling the tempo for us,” Baker said.

The Crescent JV team beat Sequim C 2-1.

On Saturday, the Loggers won their own six-team invitational tournament, sweeping the other five teams.

“We really dominated,” Baker said.

Three tournament awards were given.

Williams was named the best hitter of the tourney while Hazelett was picked as the best server and Clallam Bay’s Kirsten Erickson was selected as the best setter of the event.
