The defending 3A State Champion Capital High School women’s volleyball team defeated the visiting Gig Harbor High School three sets to none September 20 in a SSC high school volleyball match in West Olympia. Capital remained undefeated extending their record to 5-0 in the South Sound Conference. The loss for the Gig Harbor Tides puts them at 2-3 for the season.
Capital head coach Katie Turcotte thought her team was in a good rhythm during the first two sets. The Cougars won those each 25-10, and rallied in the third set to win the match with a third set victory of 25-22 after falling behind early. “My team is a great team that fights back.” says Turcotte. “They have that ability to really dig in and battle back from behind. Tonight Betsy Knutson-Keller defiantly was the key to that comeback with some key serves.”
Capital travels to Kentwood High School this weekend as they compete in the Kent Classic Volleyball Tournament, where they will join 28 other schools including local teams from Olympia High School and Tumwater High School.
