RESERVE MAKES A STATEMENT

MAHONING VALLEY SPORTS

WELLSVILLE OH- Although Western Reserve volleyball has found plenty of success over the last several years, they e always ran into Wellsville, and have been unable to solve the Tigers puzzle. They opened up the 2022 campaign by putting the pieces in place and finally getting the Tiger sized monkey off their back. Reserve beat Wellsville in 5 sets (25-19 30-28 21-25 16-25 15-11).

It was the one two punch of Alyvia Hughes and Lisa Eichert that did a ton of damage for the Devils. Both finished in double figures in the kill category. Eichert tallied 18, while Hughes had 16. The two combined for 10 service aces too as Hughes got 6 while Eichert had 4.  Both players pushed together a double double with their dig contribution. Alyvia dug up 11 while Lisa led the team with 24.  Angelina Cappabianca was also in double figure digs with 17.  She finished with 5 kills as well.  Raelynn Meyer set up the offense leading the team with 19 assists.

Western Reserve opens league play on Tuesday as they host Mineral Ridge in their league opener. Wellsville also gets league play started on Tuesday hosting East Palestine.
