EASTLAKE—North’s volleyball team recognized its six seniors prior to Tuesday’s non-conference match against visiting Perry. The Rangers then went out and swept the visiting Pirates, 25-19, 25-18, 25-17.
“We played amazing today and all six seniors started and contributed the entire game,” said North coach Samantha Muzic. “It was a great night across the board.”
Seniors Taylor Valaitis, Jill Borthwick, Kayla Colton, Grace Schaefer, Lindsey Mausser and Isabella Hatfield all made the most of their night.
Mausser finished with 13 kills while Schaefer contributed with seven. Dhvani Patel recorded 26 digs and Anna Cook pitched in with nine.
“Our offense was clicking with Lindsey, Izzy, Jill and Grace and amazing setting and distribution of the ball by Kayla and Taylor,” Muzic said. “Dhvani played fantastic defense allowing us to do all of that. I’m so proud of these girls how they played for the seniors and the seniors for using their night to showcase everything they can do.”
Borthwick also had a big night as she finished with 16 kills and 10 digs.
“It was so awesome to get a win on Senior Night because every single one of us contributed to the win, which made it even more special,” Borthwick said. “All of us seniors have good relationships with each other. We not only contribute to the team with talent but with our big personalities as well.”
The Rangers, who improved to 9-3 overall, host South on Thursday.
