Volleyball: Olympic gets first league win of the season, NK, Klahowya grab victories

EAST BREMERTON — The Trojans were victorious in their first Olympic League match of the season, defeating Bremerton in straight sets, 25-20, 25-14, 25-19.

Junior hitter Faith Harer led Olympic with nine kills and also picked up three aces. Jaylaa Cabrera had seven kills and Catherine Mieckle added five kills and two blocks.

The Trojans look to go 2-0 on Tuesday when they travel to North Mason. Olympic had just two league wins all of last season, but the team returned most of its players from a year ago and therefore have much more experience.
