North’s volleyball team celebrated Senior Night with a 3-0 sweep of visiting Brush on Tuesday.
The Rangers cruised to wins of 25-12, 25-7 and 25-5 to improve to 13-6 overall and 4-3 in the Western Reserve Conference.
“It was Senior Night so it was fun watching all five seniors play their last game at North,” said North coach Chelsey Regovich.
Seniors Sammi Valaitis, Jenna Kerns, Maria Blatnik, Samantha Pirosko and Gabby Marotta all contributed to the win.
Valaitis recorded a team-high 13 assists, three digs and an ace; Kerns finished with three kills, two blocks, two serve receptions and a dig while Marotta recorded two digs and a serve reception.
Blatnik led the Rangers with 13 kills and also recorded seven assists, six digs and a block. Pirosko finished with a team-high 16 digs, five kills, five aces and a pair of blocks.
“These seniors are a hard-working group on and off the court,” Regovich said. “They’re great leaders to have on the team and show a great example to the rest of the program. They set the talent bar high.”
Junior Jill Borthwick tied Pirosko for the team lead with five aces and sophomore Julia Kerns led the Rangers with four blocks.
The Rangers open the WRC tournament on Thursday.
