Wolves getting healthy against Narrows foes
June 12, 2008 · Updated 3:05 PM
Needing confidence more than a win, the South Kitsap volleyball team got both Tuesday night downing Wilson 25-22, 21-25, 25-18, 25-21 in its last non-league of the season.
The Wolves followed that confidence by starting Narrows League Bridge Division play with a win over Bremerton, 25-23, 25-18, 25-20 behind five aces from Gabrielle DeVault. Erika Doremus chipped in with six aces and five blocks while Crystal Bitz had 10 assists.
After starting the season 1-5, South has rebounded to 3-5 and stands at 1-0 in league play.
That was one of the things we talked about in the team meeting before we played (Wilson), South coach Jessica Anderson said. For us to go into league, we wanted to feel good and get this game under our belts.
Senior setter Crystal Bitz made sure the team was in position to pick up the win, setting her teammates 18 times while serving four aces. Junior hitter Joyce Vaiagae had nine kills in the Wilson match.
They played very well together, Anderson said. They used teamwork and that teamwork was definitely the result in them playing very well tonight.
All four games were closely contested with neither team able to jump out to a commanding lead. But when it mattered, the Wolves always seemed to come up with key point.
The team played like a team, Anderson said. They communicated effectively and constructively and those elements helped us to win
Our passing was good, Anderson added. We we have passing, we can exacute everything else.
The Wolves travel to Poulsbo Tuesday to face North Kitsap and have a 5 p.m. match against Port Angeles Thursday in the South gym.
