Indendence’s Megan Screptock signs with Edinboro

Megan Screptock’s volleyball career at Independence High School ended when the Blue Devils dropped a three-set match to Orrville in a Division III regional semifinal on Oct. 30. Her college career began on Wednesday when she signed a national letter of intent to attend Edinboro University in Pennsylvania.

Screptock, who earned first team All-Chagrin Valley Conference and first team All-Northeast Lakes District honors and was an honorable mention all-Ohioan this season, led the Blue Devils to back-to-back regional tournaments and undefeated CVC titles the past two seasons.

“In my short coaching career, Megan has so far made the job pretty easy,” said Independence coach Megan Osysko. “She’s a very coachable kid and a very hard worker. She definitely left her mark on Independence volleyball being a four-year starter and two-year captain.”

In 75 sets this season, Screptock recorded 341 kills with a .357 hitting percentage, 19 blocks, 255 digs and 63 aces.

She posted 617 kills over the past two seasons when the Blue Devils went 41-8 overall and 20-0 in the CVC.

“Offensively and defensively, she has a lot of abilities and is all-around great girl, person and hard worker,” Osysko said. “I’m very fortunate to have had the opportunity to coach her and she’s very deserving of this opportunity.”

Screptock will follow in her former coach’s footsteps.

Osysko was a four-year starter at Edinboro, where she ended her career ranked ninth in school history in games played (453), fourth in assists (4,034), fifth in assist average (8.90), third in service aces (154) and 15th in digs (934).

Edinboro coach Missy Soboleski recruited both former Blue Devils and Osysko is confident Screptock has what it takes to succeed at the next level.

“(Coach Soboleski) looks for girls that like to compete. Megan definitely has that in her. She just wants to play,” Osysko said. “She’s ready to compete and see what she can do on the college level.”
