STATE 2A VOLLEYBALL: Sequim drops two; season comes to an end

YAKIMA — The Sequim volleyball team had some tough competition at the state 2A volleyball tournament, losing a pair of matches to Ridgefield and Enumclaw.

It was the end of a successful year for the Wolves, who went 13-9 and made their first trip to the state tournament since 2016.

“It’s amazing how good the volleyball was,” at the tournament, said coach Jennie Webber-Heilman. She said many of the players in the top teams at state were able to keep playing in private clubs all through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sequim lost to No. 3 seed Ridgefield 3-0 (25-10, 25-12, 25-7) on Friday. Ridgefield made it as far as the state semifinals Saturday. Webber-Heilman said Sequim didn’t play poorly, only missing one serve.

“We were overpowered. Those were big girls. They hit the ball,” Webber-Heilman said.

The Wolves lost to No. 6 seed Enumclaw 3-0 (25-16, 25-18, 25-23). Webber-Heilman said the Wolves started slowly in this match, but picked it up at the end, nearly winning Game 3.

“We spotted them a bunch of points in the beginning, then we started to play,” she said.

Against Ridgefield, Allie Gale led the Wolves with eight assists. She served 7-for-7 with six digs and five perfect passes. Kendall Hastings had four kills, two blocks and served 5-for-5. Jordan Hegtvedt had 14 digs and nine perfect passes, Jolene Vaara eight digs and two kill.

Against Enumclaw, Hegtvedt had 15 kills, served 6-for-6 and had seven perfect passes. Hastings had 12 digs, 11 kills and seven assists. Gale had 17 digs, 10 assists, four kills and served 14-for-14 with an ace. Malory Morey served 10-for-10 with an ace and three kills, while Vaara had 10 digs, eight kills and six perfect passes. Kelsi Bergeson served 6-for-6.

Gale, Hegtvedt, Morey and Bergeson all graduate this year, while all Olympic League first-team player Hastings returns along with Vaara.
