Volleyball: Wolves improve to 8-2 with wins over Riders, Trojans

Sequim’s Wolves swept rival Port Angeles 3-0 on Oct. 5 (25-22, 25-18, 25-22), though two out of the three sets were close.

The Wolves won 25-22, 25-18, 25-22 to remain the No. 2 2A team in the Olympic League. Bainbridge, a 3A school, is winning the league but takes a different postseason route once the regular season is over.

“We actually played pretty well,” Sequim coach Jennie Webber Heilman. said

Webber-Heilman said the Wolves only missed one serve in the first game and one in the second. They missed four in the third game. “We had to play catch up a little bit,” she said. “(But) we were in a good rotation toward the end of the game.”

For the Wolves, Jordan Hegtvedt served 6-for-6 and had 16 digs.

“She was playing great defense; it was fun to watch,” Webber Heilman said.

Sequim’s Kendall Hastings served 16-for-16 with 17 assists, nine kills, four aces and 11 digs. Jolene Vaara had five aces, serving 13-for-15, nine assists and a season-high 15 kills. Kelsi Bergeson served 16-for-18 with four aces.

Sequim capped the week with a 3-0 shutout of Olympic on Oct. 7, topping the Trojans 25-23, 25-20 and 25-15.

Bergseon, who finished 17-for-17 on serves, had a key, six-point serving run in the second game, while Hegtvedt had a seven-point serving run to close out the set.

Hastings (nine kills) and Vaara (seven) paced the offense and shared setting duties, earning 10 assists apiece. Hegtvedt had 14 digs to lead Sequim’s defense, and the Wolves served strong with 17 aces — three each from Hastings, Hegtvedt, Vaara and Angel Wagner.

The Wolves (7-2 in Olympic League, 8-2 overall) competed at the Capital City Invite in Olympia on Oct. 9. Results from those matches and the Wolves’ scheduled match at league-leading North Kitsap on Oct. 12 were not available at press time.
