Volleyball: Wolves fall one win short of state

A senior-laden Sequim High volleyball squad with postseason hopes saw their dreams of a state 2A playoff berth fall short by one game after going 1-2 at the West Central District 2A tourney last week in Tacoma.

The Wolves lost a five-game heart-breaker to River Ridge (18-25, 26-24, 25-23, 22-25, 15-12) on Nov. 9, dropping the Wolves into the consolation bracket.

The next day, Sequim battled back from a 2-0 hole to upend Olympic League rival North Mason — the fourth time Sequim beat the Bulldogs this season — before getting eliminated by Steilacoom’s Sentinels in the consolation semifinal in three games (25-21, 25-22, 25-22).

The Wolves finish the season with a 13-7 mark, a three-win improvement over last year’s record.

All five of last season’s West Central District state qualifiers advanced this fall, with Washington taking the title, Fife second and defending district champ North Kitsap in third. Also advancing to state was White River (fourth), Kingston (fifth) and Steilacoom (sixth).
