Spieker sets the bar higher for CK setters

Central Kitsap’s Angela Spieker set the new school record for, well, setting.

Spieker, a CK senior volleyball standout, recorded 21 assists in Thursday’s 3-0 (25-11, 25-9, 25-16) sweep on the road against Stadium, giving her CK’s all-time assists record with 1,602 — and that’s with four matches to go.

The new record replaces that set by former CK netter Alli Weisbarth, now at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Fla., who racked up 1,544 assists from 2003-05.

Last year, Spieker broke Weisbarth’s single-season mark with 1,124. The single-match record of 65 was set in 1994 by Korrie Kashuba.

But Spieker wasn’t the only standout in the win.

Tara Patton led the Cougars with nine kills and three blocks, while Theresia Dever had 18 digs.

CK (8-2, 4-2 in Narrows League play) next hosts Lincoln (2-7, 0-5) at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Olympic League Volleyball

The Trojans fell in a tough match Thursday with Sequim, one of three Olympic League unbeatens, 3-0 (25-9, 25-13, 25-21) on the road.

Megan Rainey led the Trojans (3-6, 1-2) with 11 kills.

Klahowya also had a tough week, falling to Bremerton Thursday as both teams were searching for their first Oly League win.

The Eagles (1-6, 0-2) got close in the second game, falling 25-21, after falling 25-6 in the first game. Bremerton (2-5, 1-2) completed the sweep with a 25-12 win in the finale.

Jessica Wilson had four aces for the Eagles while Courtney Fowler logged three kills.

Girls soccer

It was a week of tough losses for the Central Kitsap girls soccer team, as the Cougars (8-4-0 overall, 4-3-0 in league) fell in 2-1 decisions to both Olympia at home on Tuesday and to South Kitsap Thursday in Port Orchard.

In Tuesday’s loss, CK fell behind after the Bears (8-1-1) scored twice in the first half.

CK’s Brandi Hamre put the Cougs on the board with a goal in the 68th minute from Hannah Orando, but that was as close as CK would get.

Against SK, the Cougars actually struck first, with Jordan King finding the back of the net in the 32nd minute.

But the Wolves’ (6-2-1, 4-2-0) Kylie Balstad struck one goal in the 33rd minute and another in the 61st to hand CK the loss.

On the flip side, Olympic got two big wins this week to improve to 3-0-0 in Oly League play (Oly is 7-2-0 overall).

Tuesday, the Trojans topped Port Townsend 3-0 thanks to goals from Liz Curry, Megan Montambo and Audrey Pond, all in the first half.

In Thursday’s win, the Trojans stomped Sequim (3-6-0, 0-2-0) 8-1 thanks to a hat trick from Allie Brown, who also had an assist to Pond. Pond finished with two assists.

Lacy Skelly scored twice as did Curry, while Rachel Haas logged an assist.

All the Trojan scoring came after Sequim jumped out to a 1-0 lead thanks to a third-minute goal by Brittany Glass.

As for the Eagles (7-3-0, 2-0-0), Klahowya dominated Oly League rivals Bremerton 4-1 in a Thursday home match, with Sierra Cook leading the way with two goals and an assist.

Bekka Schell opened scoring with a seventh-minute goal and Theresa Pryzbylek also found the back of the net.

Bremerton’s (4-5-1, 2-1-0) only goal came from Crystal Truemper as the Knights fell for the first time in league play this season.
