    Carter leads North past Geneva


    EASTLAKE—Geneva’s volleyball team arrived at North High School on Monday ready to play.

    Unfortunately for the Eagles, so did Abby Carter.

    Carter, North’s senior player of the game, recorded 19 kills off 27 attempts to lead the Rangers to a 3-0 sweep of her former school.

    “I always love playing against Geneva,” said Carter, who moved to Eastlake after her freshman season. “That senior class is solid and we all grew up playing together. I still have close relations with most of those girls so it’s fun to see them.”

    The Rangers and Eagles traded the lead several times throughout the first set with North pulling out a 26-24 win.

    North dominated the second, 25-10, then held off the Eagles in the third to close out the match with a 25-23 win.

    “Our passers did a great job tonight which made it easy for Adri (George) to be able to set me,” Carter said. “Adri and I have a great connection and she always does a great job spreading us out as hitters to get us around the bigger blocks.”

    North improved to 2-0 with a young roster.

    “We do have a few younger girls that have stepped into big roles this season,” Carter said. “As seniors, it’s our job to make sure they know the system and are comfortable playing alongside us.”

    Allison Schimmels contributed to the win with seven kills, two blocks and four aces and Katie Alexander added seven kills and an ace. Kailyn Mastroianni finished with six kills and George posted 36 assists.

    Kaitlynn Minarik led Geneva with nine kills and Sydney Park added three. Chrissy Oros posted a team-best 18 assists and Morgan Stoltz led the Eagles with 12 digs.
