Hornets sweep Spartans

Kirtland’s volleyball team has experienced plenty of peaks and valleys this fall.

Fortunately for the Hornets, they’ve had more peaks as they head down the stretch. They defeated visiting Richmond Heights on Wednesday, 25-19, 25-12, 25-11, to extend their winning streak to three matches.

Arm Tights™ are new at SPANX!“Due to injuries we have altered the lineup and we starting to see this group really begin to jell,” said Kirtland coach Bob Schenosky. “Starting with Krista Robejsek stepping in to become the dominant middle we knew was there, over the last few games she has become our leader in kills. Moreover, her and junior Lily Kelemen are averaging about 10 blocks as a pair.”

Robejsek recorded 11 kills, four blocks and four aces in the win while Kelemen contributed with five kills and four blocks.

Elise Frazee recorded 16 digs and two aces and Laura Koschik contributed with seven kills in nine attempts and two service aces.

“Laura Koschik has stepped up on the outside hitting 15 of 19 in her last two matches,” Schenosky said. “The entire team is stepping up to fill the void. I like the momentum our team is building into the last couple weeks in the season ahead of the playoffs.”

Abby Ruckel added 10 assists and six aces for the Hornets.

“Our setters, Abby Ruckel and Anna Shuppe, are doing a great job,” Schenosky said. “Without them, our hitters would not be getting the opportunities.”

The Hornets travel to Hathaway Brown on Thursday.
