For a game, Sequim looked to kept pace with the defending league champs.

But North Kitsap dominated games two and three in a sweep of the Wolves in Sequim on Sept. 24.

Kendall Hastings had five of Sequim’s 10 kills and Kalli Wiker added nine assists, but it wasn’t enough in a 25-20, 25-7, 25-11 league loss to the Vikings.

“We played well the first game even though we missed five serves,” Sequim coach Jennie Webber Heilman said.

“The next two games we just quit talking and did not play aggressive defense at all,” she said.

“Our passing was not good enough to get any offense going.”

Wiker was 9-for-9 on serves and added a block.

McKenna Hastings led the team with seven digs.

Sequim dropped a three-game, non-league match to Klahowya at home on Sept. 23, falling 25-20, 25-21 and 25-11 to the 1A Eagles.

”We played very flat this match,” Webber Heilman said. “We were not talking on going for balls on defense and our serve receive was not helping out our setter or offense.”

Kiana Robideau led the Wolves with 12 kills and Kendall Hastings added five. Wiker had 17 assists.

“This was not a good match for us; we need to improve on changing the pace of the game and be more aggressive on defense, including blocking,” Webber Heilman said.

The Wolves’ varsity squad had an abrupt week, playing their only two matches. Sequim’s JV and C teams were busier, playing at match at Neah Bay on Sept. 26 and hosting a JV/C tournament on Sept 28.

Looking ahead

Sequim was scheduled to play at North Mason on Oct. 1.

The Wolves host Kingston on Oct. 3 and rival Port Angeles on Oct. 8. Port Angeles edged Sequim in five game in the season-opener on Sept. 12.

Sequim has two road matches — Oct. 10 at Bremerton and a non-leaguer on Oct. 12 at Blaine — before hosting Olympic on Oct. 15.
