Strong start for Quilcene Rangers

Posted

In earlier action against Chief Kitsap, the Ranger girls varsity team beat the Bears in three games. 

The Quilcene girls played well and were able to adjust to a change in the lineup due to an injury, said Ranger Coach Cailey Snyder. 

The Rangers also slogged to a win over Mary M. Knight, claiming a four-set victory, 26-28, 25-28, 25-7, 25-21.

Bridget Hitt served 24/26 for the Rangers, seven of them aces. Hitt had  13 kills, 20 assists, and 15 digs.

Shelby Love, playing as right side hitter, served 11/14 and contributed one kill, one assist, and 28 digs.

Middle hitter Megan Jones served 7/12 and contributed four aces, seven kills, three assists, and 13 digs.

Savannah McBride had a big night and served 20/21 with three aces, seven kills, and 24 digs.

The Rangers Ashley Jones served 10/10 with two aces, eight kills, and 10 digs.

Jayden Talley, an eighth-grade right side hitter, served 12/15 with four aces, one kill, and six digs.

The night started with a few surprises for Quilcene. The Rangers were adjusting to not having two of their starters, and after the first set, they were able to come together for a win. 

The Rangers took on Clallam Bay and won three of five sets to open the season.

Quilcene took the win despite missing one of its starters. 

“It took a bit for us to get into the rotation, but thanks to the leadership of my captains (senior Olivia Benson and juniors Bridget Hitt and Shelby Love), good communication, and eighth-grader Jayden Talley’s serves, our team was able to keep cool under the pressure and gain our first win,” Snyder said.
