Ashlyn Yaskiewicz had another great week. And what a great week it was to step up. Our most crucial week yet is playing 4 Area matches three of those against the other two best teams in the region. Ashlyn shined in almost every category. The most significant one for this week was her hitting. Her percentage has gone up lately, and she is adding to the offense incredibly. Her passing improved and was solid and she had the second most aces on the week. And Ashlyn always leads by a great example sacrificing to save a ball at all costs for her team. -coach Matt Heyl

Finlee is an amazing setter, server,  and dedicated volleyball player! She shows such great dedication and works hard in school and at practices. She has wonderful integrity and sportsmanship.
