Volleyball update: Matches are getting interestingSeptember 18th, 2012 by Annette Griffus
Tuesday’s are volleyball nights in the newsroom, and the matches are becoming more intriguing. The Narrows and Sea-Tac Leagues are already playing league matches, but the Olympic League won’t get started until Tuesday, Sept. 25. That being said, no one seems to be telling the players that these games “don’t really count.”
Let’s start with NK at Port Angeles: The two top teams in the OL the past few years were back at it with the Vikings getting a 3-1 win over the Roughriders in PA. That moved NK to 3-1 on the season and dropped PA to 2-2.
Kingston remained perfect with a 3-1 win over North Mason, although it was closer than it appeared. In the fourth and deciding game, the score was tied at 21-21 when Kingston’s Kareena Story served out the match.
Sidenote: Kingston is at North Kitsap Thursday. Kingston has some size but NK is scrappy, so that match could go either way.
Olympic picked up its second win of the season, a 3-1 win over Port Townsend. ”We’re making the progress I think I want to see at this point and time,” said Oly coach Keith Peden.
In Narrows League, No. 7 Gig Harbor beat Central Kitsap 3-1 while South Kitsap earned a 3-1 win over Yelm.
