Ivy Leedy and Co. are now 7-2 on the season.

Quick turnaround, quicker win.

Less than 24 hours after dismantling Sultan at home, the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad was back at it Thursday night, thrashing Port Townsend on the road.

The ferry ride probably took longer than the match, as the Wolves cruised in with a 25-5, 25-8, 25-8 win over the RedHawks.

With the non-conference victory, Coupeville’s young guns send their record soaring to a pretty dang good 7-2 on the season.

CHS coach Chris Smith kept his bench hoppin’ Thursday, rotating in 11 players, with all of them having an impact on play.

Freshman setter Maddie Georges kept the offense clicking, doling out 14 assists to go with seven service aces and two kills.

Also coming up big were Abby Mulholland and Taygin Jump, who each pounded six aces, while Kylie Chernikoff crushed her enemies, saw them driven before her, and enjoyed the lamentation of the women as she sprayed seven kills.

The rest of Coupeville’s stat line on the night:

Alita Blouin — one kill
Chernikoff — three aces, one dig
Jump — two kills
Ryanne Knoblich — two kills, one ace, one dig
Anya Leavell — three kills
Jaimee Masters — three aces, two digs
Heidi Meyers — four aces
Mulholland — two kills

Jill Prince and Ivy Leedy also saw floor time for Coupeville, which gets back to North Sound Conference action next week, traveling Tuesday to Cedar Park Christian and Thursday to South Whidbey.

Pick your poison.

The Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad can kill you in numerous ways, from scorching service aces to blistering kills to lil’ tips.

And the Wolves brought everything in the tool box Wednesday, bedeviling Sultan on the way to a 25-10, 25-16, 25-19 victory on the floor of the CHS gym.

The win lifts Coupeville to 4-1 in North Sound Conference play, 6-2 overall.

After pushing powerhouse King’s all around the court for much of Monday’s razor-thin three-set loss, the Wolves came out ready to thump on Sultan.

It started with Abby Mulholland dancing at the net, blasting a pair of kills which tore off the back line, then veered to Kylie Chernikoff going nuclear on the ball, before Heidi Meyers started droppin’ service aces like a finely-tuned machine.

While there were three ties in the early going, the last one at 7-7, the Wolves started to pull ahead after Meyers made a four-point run on serve.

Another spike off of Mulholland’s fingers stretched the lead to 13-10, secured a side-out, and put the ball into the hands of Maddie Georges.

At which point Mad Dog got crazy.

The freshmen setter stayed at the service stripe for the remainder of the set, ripping off 12 straight points on serve.

Georges got a wee bit of help from Chernikoff, who tore a girl’s leg off with a laser of a spike, Taygin Jump, who mashed a winner while hanging in midair, and Ryanne Knoblich, who dropped in a bump winner while on the move.

But 92.3% of the time, it was Georges doing the damage during the 12-0 run, zipping aces to the right, to the left, then right down the middle of the floor.

The only thing which slowed her roll was the end of the set, which required a change of benches, and the introduction of new servers to the line.

Her replacements immediately picked up where Georges left off.

Jill Prince and Jaimee Masters served up a tasty buffet of aces, while Anya Leavell operated as an assassin, picking off rivals with a variety of spikes which sliced, diced and julienned anyone who got in their way.

While Sultan got closer as the match played out, the third set offered up a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-style transformation.

Fresh from losing the first two sets, the Turks shocked the world by roaring out to an 8-0 lead, eventually gave it all back, then collapsed at the end.

Georges started the comeback, with a second strong run on serve, with Knoblich, Mulholland, and Gwen Gustafson bringing the pain at the net.

Back-to-back winners from Prince, on a spike, then a tip, knotted things at 15-15, before pushing the Wolves ahead for the first time in the final frame.

Sultan kept it close, only to see Knoblich deliver back-to-back aces to stretch the lead back out.

With the match roaring to the finish line, Coupeville crafted the best play of the entire match while up 23-18.

Wolf libero Alita Blouin, who spent the entire match sacrificing her body for the good of the team, sliding across the floor, collecting digs by scraping balls off the floor, sprinkled some magic on the floor.

Making a spectacular diving save on a ball which was all but dead, she flipped the ball skyward, setting up Mulholland, who came crashing through and blasted the ball for what seemed to be the decisive final word.

Except Gustafson went her one better on the very next, and very final, play, twirling into the air, freezing for a second, then unloading a match-ending kill which blew the doors off the gym.

Like I said, pick your poison, cause they’re all going to kill you.

One step backward, four steps forward.

After taking its only loss of the season to 2A Anacortes, the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad has taken its game to a higher level.

The latest example? Thrashing host Orcas Island Saturday 25-10, 25-8, 25-20 in a non-conference bout.

The fourth-straight win for the Wolf young guns, it lifts them to a sparkling 5-1 on the season.

CHS coach Chris Smith mixed and matched lineups, playing 11 girls Saturday, and all came through with something positive for a streaking team.

Leading the way was freshman setter Maddie Georges, who doled out 17 assists, ripped nine service aces, and still found time to collect two kills and two digs.

Helping her along were big hitter Kylie Chernikoff, who piled up eight kills, and serve-masters Jaimee Masters (five aces) and Alita Blouin (four aces).

Also joining the kill parade were Jill Prince (3), Abby Mulholland (2), Taygin Jump (2), Ryanne Knoblich (1), and Anya Leavell (1).

Heidi Meyers and Jump tossed in two aces apiece, while Knoblich scraped the floor to pick up three digs, and Ivy Leedy chipped in with hustle plays.

The Wolf JV returns to action with a busy week ahead.

Coupeville hosts North Sound Conference rivals King’s Monday and Sultan Wednesday, then travels to Port Townsend Thursday for a non-league tilt.

Zing them with aces, then smash them with kills.

Controlling play both at the service stripe and the net, the Coupeville High School JV volleyball squad pounded host Granite Falls Thursday night.

Rolling to a 25-22, 25-21, 25-19 win, the Wolves lift their record to 3-0 in North Sound Conference play, 4-1 overall.

Coupeville struck from every direction, rolling up 15 service aces, with Alita Blouin and Abby Mulholland registering four apiece, while also piling up 30 kills.

Kylie Chernikoff, who has been brutalizing foes of late, paced CHS with 14 kills, with Ivy Leedy chipping in with seven put-aways of her own.

The rest of the kills were spread out across the roster, with Lucy Tenore (2), Taygin Jump (2), Heidi Meyers (2), Mulholland (2), and Anya Leavell (1) also connecting.

Maddie Georges ran the Wolf offense, doling out a team-high 10 assists, while Jump (12), Blouin (11), Chernikoff (10), and Meyers (6) all rang up big numbers on digs.

The Wolf young guns, who have won three in a row, have a fairly quick turnaround, as they return to action Saturday, when they travel to Orcas Island for a non-conference tilt.

Zinging nasty serves from every angle Tuesday, the Coupeville High School JV volleyball spikers were more than visiting South Whidbey could handle.

Much more.

Riding their saucy service game, the Wolves romped to a 25-9, 26-24 win, then played a third set just for kicks and (somewhat surprisingly) dropped that one 25-21.

Not that it mattered much, as the W was already recorded in the big book, lifting Coupeville’s young guns to 2-0 in North Sound Conference play, 3-1 overall.

The JV’s only defeat came against 2A Anacortes in a closely-fought rumble, but there would be no such shenanigans on this night.

Coupeville came out swinging hot from the first serve — which was actually put up in the air by the visiting Falcons.

After a brief rally, Lucy Tenore buried a kill down the middle of the floor, and once the ball was in the Wolves hands, the set was as good as done.

Maddie Georges led off for CHS, and Mad Dog was barkin’ big time, running off eight points on her serve as Coupeville blew out to a 9-0 lead.

The Wolves ended up not even going through their full rotation of servers in the first set, as they only needed four players to get the job done.

Taygin Jump followed Georges by throwing down seven straight points of her own on serve, before Alita Blouin and Jaimee Masters closed out the set with aces that smashed off of faces, tore arms off of rival players, and left burn marks on the gym floor.

South Whidbey did get some of the serves back in play, but then quickly ran into a rampaging Kylie Chernikoff, who spent the night flexing mad skills, as she bashed the life out of the volleyball.

Chernikoff mixed in a couple of sweet tips, freezing the Falcon players in position, before sliding the ball into tiny gaps, but it was her power game which left a lasting impression.

There were several moments to choose from, but her best play probably came at 17-6, when she came thundering towards the net, elevated, and launched a smoking hot kill which exploded down the left sideline and vanished out the gym door.

The Wolves didn’t let up in the second set, though they did have to dig a little deeper to get over the top and close out the win.

Blouin had the magic touch at the service stripe this time around, zipping a series of aces, and getting some help from her teammates.

Abby Mulholland made a nice running save to keep a rally alive, while she and Ivy Leedy teamed up to stuff a South Whidbey hitter at the net right after Georges slid across the floor on her stomach to prevent the Falcons from ending the point.

Everyone chipped in, with Jump, Tenore, and Chernikoff spraying winners, Anya Leavell and Heidi Meyers chipping in with hustle plays, and the win was sealed on a play which perfectly summed up the night.

Hanging in the air, Chernikoff crushed a kill, and the ball hit the top of the net with an audible bang.

For a second, it looked like the shot wouldn’t clear the barrier, but then the net, already in serious pain, whimpered and gave up, shrinking away and letting the ball gently flop over and drop to the floor with a pleasing plop for point #50.

With no ferries to catch, and plenty of time left before the scheduled start of the varsity match, the two teams agreed to get a little exhibition-style work in with a third set.

Masters brought out some appropriately scary service winners to spark the Wolves, while Jump was everywhere in the third set, with most of her shots exploding off of Falcon bodies.
