SIMONS BREAKS SEASON ASSIST RECORD

MAHONING VALLEY SPORTS

AUSTINTOWN OH- It’s not every season you see a freshman come along and immediately plant a flag as the best players in the program’s history. That is exactly what Rylie Simons has done for Austintown Fitch. She’s already broken the record for assists in a match, and on Thursday night she broke the record for assists in a season. She is now on 585 assists and counting. Fitch was able to sweep Boardman on the night. (25-21 25-21 25-12)

Joclyn Jourdan mounted a double double to lead Fitch with 20 kills, and 11 digs.  Kylie Folkwein also put in a great day with 9 kills, and 15 digs.  Simons shattered the assist record with 42 of them on the night.

The Falcons hit the road on Saturday as they’ll take on Perry in Massillon.  Boardman will be home on Saturday as they host West Branch.
