EAST PALESTINE, OH- It was a special night from the onset on Thursday in East Palestine. Four members of the East Palestine Volleyball team were recognized for their service to the program, and as seniors, they took the floor in East Palestine for one final time.
It was one to remember for the Lady Bulldogs as they acted as a buzzsaw through timber against Chaney in straight sets, 25-10, 25-5, and 25-1.
McKenna Griffith led the charge as she had 14 points, 9 aces, and a dig. Sophomore Big Dog of the Valley nominee for this week, Paige Snyder more than held her own with 18 points, 5 aces and a pair of digs. Malynn Bistarkey was an assassin in the front row with 10 kills while Morgan Cheurco had a double-double with 10 points, 21 helpers, 6 aces and 2 digs.
A special moment prior to the game as the Gorby’s MVP for Thursday, Liv Figley’s Dad (Dave Figley) played the National Anthem on his guitar on his daughter’s Senior Night.
East Palestine now turns its attention to the postseason and awaits the winner of Lake Center Christian, and Liberty. The game is hosted by Salem High School.
