AUSTINTOWN OH- Austintownn Fitch volleyball feels likes it is their year to shine in the area. They have plenty of reasons to feel that way as well. A senior led squad with plenty of options on the offensive side. Middle blockers are so important in having success on the big stage. The Falcons have senior Alex Fisher to fall back on in the middle.
Alex brings experience into the middle of Fitch’s offense, and she also brings tremendous blocking instincts to their front row defense. When you look at the hitters that the teams on the Falcons schedule can throw at you, having the brick wall of Alex Fisher has been a key factor in the Falcon’s success. A big win on the season was their win over Canfield. The Falcons had not beaten the Cardinals during Fisher’s high school career. She came up big in that matchup, not just with her plays on the court, but also her leadership when the team was down 2-0.
So far in her career at Fitch, Alex has played in 103 sets. She has accumulated 1156 kills. that is an average of 1.5 kills per set. Fisher has also gathered 44 blocks in her career. Alex has committed to continue her volleyball career at Hiram next year.
Alex was kind enough to take time to talk to YSN’s Anthony Hartwig. They discuss her senior leadership, team goals for the year, and much more. Learn more about the Falcons volleyball program in the latest Player Profile Gone Fishing.
