Hornets earn win over Cuyahoga Heights

Kirtland earned a three-game sweep of visiting Cuyahoga Heights on Thursday but it didn’t come easily.

The Hornets edged the Redskins, 25-22, in the first set then cruised to wins of 25-11 and 25-4 in the final two.

“Cuyahoga Heights came out strong in game one,” said Kirtland coach Bob Schenosky. “In games two and three we improved our net play with our middles playing well.”

Katherine Skrbis, who missed Tuesday’s win over Harvey, returned to lead the Hornets with 15 kills. She also contributed to the win with five digs.

Lilly Kelemen pitched in with seven kills and five blocks, Elise Frazee recorded 13 digs and three service aces and Abby Ruckel contributed with 17 assists.

Krista Robejsek and Anna Shuppe dominated at the net with 11 and six kills, respectively, while Robejsek also recorded five blocks and Shuppe had 12 assists and two aces. Nicole Aveni finished with six service aces for the Hornets, who improved to 3-1 overall.

“Our all-around game continues to improve game to game,” Schenosky said. “We’re getting better each game.”
