Lake, Valley Divisions rule the night

PERRY—The Lake and Valley Division all-stars ruled the night at the inaugural Chagrin Valley Conference all-star volleyball matches at Perry High School on Sunday.

The Lake Division all-stars swept the Chagrin All-Stars, 3-0, in the first match and the Valley Division all-stars won all three sets against the Metro All-Stars in the nightcap.

Perry’s Maddie Tharp changed the momentum for the Lake All-Stars in the first set when she stepped to the service line with the score tied, 11-11. Tharp scored the next 14 points, which included six service aces, to give the Lake All-Stars a 25-11 win.

The Lake All-Stars won the second set 25-16 and then closed out the sweep with a 25-17 win in the third set.

Perry’s Mike Fitzgerald coached the Lake All-Stars while West Geauga’s Amber Baker led the Chagrin All-Stars.

Kirtland’s Natalie Glowe and Cardinal’s Haley Domen sparked the Valley Division All-Stars to their win over the Metro All-Stars.

Crestwood’s Mikayla Berquist recorded a kill to finish off the first set with the Valley Division all-stars on top, 25-19.

The Valley All-Stars won the second set, 25-19, and Glowe’s two-handed slam ended the third set, 25-22.

Kirtland’s Arlayna Newcomer guided the Valley Division All-Stars to the victory while Berkshire assistant coach Anne Mann stepped in to coach the Metro All-Stars in a pinch.
