Unbeaten King's tops Coupeville | Volleyball
King's wrapped up a perfect volleyball regular season at Coupeville's expense, beating the host Wolves 3-0 Tuesday, Oct. 29.
The Knights (14-0, 16-0), who are currently ranked third in the state 1A poll, won 25-19, 25-17, 25-14.
Coupeville finished its season 2-12 in conference play and 3-12 overall.
The match marked the end of high school volleyball for six Coupeville seniors, all honor students: Sydney Aparicio, Amanda Fabrizi, Allie Hanigan, Breeanna Messner, Megan Oakes and Haley Sherman.
First-year head coach Kirsty Croghan said it is hard to see these girls leave because "they are such a wonderful group of young ladies, and they are great examples and role models for our younger group."
She added, "On the flip side of things, I get a lot of joy seeing them take the next step to moving on to bigger things and adventures."
All were among the stat leaders in the King's match.
Messner recorded two assists, hit 14 serves, had 10 positive serve receives and 11 positive defensive plays.
Fabrizi earned 11 positive serve receives and defensive plays to go along with six serves and an ace.
Hanigan totaled two kills and two blocks, while Sherman had four kills.
Aparicio finished with 11 positive defensive plays and Oakes led the team with five assists.
Junior Hailey Hammer topped the Wolves with five kills.
Crogan said her team "battled a times" against King's, including the first game when the teams were tied 12-12 before the Knights pulled away.
Alysanne Van Dyke paced King's with 13 kills and five aces.
