Volleyball: Sequim powers past PA, falls to Kingston

Sequim got a win over their rivals from the east, but Kingston spoiled the Wolves’ week with a sweep on Sequim’s home court.

The Wolves (3-3 in Olympic League play, 4-3 overall) tallied a 3-1 win against winless Port Angeles on Sept. 26, paced by a big serving game from newcomer Jayla Julmist.

The freshman was 17-o-f19 serving with three aces and added five blocks in the win as Sequim rebounded from a first game loss to win going away (20-25, 25-13, 25-15, 25-15).

“We missed too many serves (in the first game); we played much better the next three games,” Sequim coach Jennie Webber Heilman said.

Brittney Gale (16-of-17 serving) got Sequim back on track with a seven-point serving run in game two while Julmist added a five-point run in the fourth game.

Tayler Breckenridge led the team with eight kills while Gale had seven and Arlene Law had six. Law also had five blocks.

Kalli Wiker had 11 assists and Gale had six.

“The setters spread out the offense well,” Webber Heilman said.

Bobbi Sparks and Isabelle Dennis led the defense with 12 digs apiece.

Sequim couldn’t continue the momentum two days later, as the visiting Kingston Buccaneers earned a season sweep with a 3-0 win on Sept. 28. Details were not available at press time.

Looking ahead

Sequim was slated to play at Bremerton on Oct. 3. The Wolves host Olympic on Oct. 5 before playing at Coupeville Oct. 10 and at North Mason Oct. 12.

Sequim travels to Olympic for the Capitol City Invitational on Oct. 14. The Wolves then host league-leading North Kitsap on Oct. 17.
