Hoping to close out their home schedule on a high note, Sequim dropped a three-set match to visiting North Mason on Oct. 24.

The Bulldogs, locked in as the No. 2 team in the Olympic League behind defending league champ North Kitsap, dominated play from the opening point in a 25-25, 25-12 and 25-18 league win.

“We ended to have better blocking to help sop their offense,” Sequim coach Jennie Webber Heilman said.

Setter Kalli Wiker had the lone stuff block for the Wolves.

“We just were not able to overcome their offensive attack.

“Our serve receive was struggling and we allowed several serving runs,” Webber Heilman said — including a seven-point run in the first game, and eight-point streak in game two and a five-point run the final game.

Amanda Weller had a strong game with a team-high six kills; teammate Kendall Hastings added five. Wiker had 14 assists and Kiana Robideau added three kills and 13 digs.

The Wolves served well, Heilman noted, with a 94 percent (44-for-47) effort from the serving line, “but (we) were not serving very tough, only getting tow aces.”

Sequim was scheduled to play at Kingston on Oct. 29 to finish their season — results were not available at press time.

“We are hoping to bring up the level of our play for our last match,” Webber Heilman last week. On Oct. 3, Kingston edged the host Wolves in five games.
