Kirtland sweeps Cleveland Heights

It took one set for the Kirtland volleyball team to find its groove at Cleveland Heights on Monday but the Hornets had little trouble defeating the Tigers, 3-0.

Kirtland won the first set, 25-21, and then dominated the next two, 25-9, 25-15, to improve to 6-4 on the year.

“After a sluggish first game they came out aggressive in games two and three and played well,” said Kirtland coach Bob Schenosky. “Nothing hit the floor.”

Senior Taylor Frazee explained away the slow start.

“I think that once we get into the groove of the game and figure out how the other team plays it allows us to then strategize and play our game,” she said. “We started off slow in the first game but we came back in the second and dominated in the third. We all played together really well.”

Sam Bailey led the team with 10 kills and also pitched in with three blocks, 16 service points and three aces. Olivia Mancisio recorded 23 service points with seven aces and six kills and Julia Ricketti had eight kills and six digs.

“Sam Bailey had some serving runs and had a lot of kills in the middle,” Frazee said. “Olivia Mancisio also got a lot of serves.”

Kirtland travels to Eastlake North on Tuesday.
