CORTLAND OH- When opposing teams make a scouting report for Lakeview, Brooke Schneider might not be on their list of players to keep an eye on. Maybe that is why Lakeview wins so much. If you don’t respect Schneider, you’ll learn pretty quickly what she means to the success of the Bulldogs. Since her sophomore year, Brooke has always been an excellent defender for Lakeview. She has always been a tough player to get a ball past. However, as the years have gone on her offensive skills have grown a lot. She can swing well from the outside with pretty good efficiency.  Add that to the fact that her serve has become one of the most dangerous servers in the area, and you’ll find out how great of a player she actually is.

Schneider was kind enough to take some time and talk to YSN’s Anthony Hartwig about her senior season.  They also go over some of her favorite memories with the team, her serving routine, and much more.

CORTLAND OH- It was a heavyweight match up set up for Wednesday night between Mineral Ridge and Lakeview, and it did not disappoint. Mineral Ridge took a back and forth affair in 5 sets (21-25 26-24 20-25 25-20 15-13).

It took each team about a set to shake off nerves in set one, as they traded errors back and forth. Lakeview was able to come up with key plays down the stretch to escape with the set 25-21.

In set two trailing 23-24 Mineral Ridge Head coach Ron Lesko made a gutsy decision bringing in Aliyah Whitaker cold off the bench to serve for senior Jersey Tucker. It worked out nicely for the Rams as Whitaker served up clutch points to help Ridge even the match up at 1-1 with a 26-24 victory in set 2.

Lakeview responded quickly out of the gates jumping out to a 4-0 lead in set 3. Maggie Pavlansky served up the rally getting Ridge out of system. Another back and forth set eventually went to the Bulldogs and gave them a 2-1 lead in the match.

Serving errors were a problem all night for Lakeview, and they really showed up in set 4. Ridge would use it to lead most of the set and hold off a late Lakeview push to take set 4 25-20 and force a set 5.

Lakeview once again jumped out to a strong lead coming off of losing a set. The Bulldogs scored the first 3 points and led 4-1. They kept that lead all the way up to 13-9. Then, Ridge senior setter Danielle Aulet stepped up with huge serves to help the Rams end the set, and the match on a 6-0 run to win set 5 15-13.

The Rams were led by Katelyn Lesko who finished with an impressive double double  with 22 kills, and 24 digs. Danielle Aulet set up 41 assists on the night, and also totaled 21 digs to complete a double double herself. She also served up 5 aces. Morgan Sigley finished with 7 kills.

Tara Lytle led the Bulldogs with 11 kills . She also had 3 blocks, and 3 aces. Pavlansky set up 25 assists, and also served 3 aces. Brooke Schneider led in digs with 23.

Mineral Ridge closes out the season on Thursday hosting Brookfield. Lakeview now awaits tournament action where they are the 1 seed and will host the winner of Southeast vs Mogadore Field.


COLUMBIANA OH- Lakeview came into Wednesday’s matchup against Crestview trying to recover from their first loss of the season, and their first NE8 loss in over 2 years. However the Rebels made sure the Bulldogs continued to struggle with a dominating win in straight sets (25-16 25-22 25-15).

The Crestview game plan was simple, yet effective. They attacked Lakeview’s setter Maggie Pavlansky, making her take the first touch, and they added on fantastic play from their middle blockers. Executing that plan to perfection the Rebels made it very difficult for Lakeview to get into system. The Bulldogs were definitely dealing with confidence issues. All season other players would step up and move the ball wonderfully when teams would attack Pavlansky. It simply wasn’t happening against the Rebels, and that was a key factor to their struggles.

The Rebels were led by Lucy Montgomery who barely missed another triple double with 16 kills, 10 assists, and 9 digs. Grace Auer was right behind her with 16 assists, 15 digs, and 9 kills. Shelby Rambo played wonderfully in the middle finishing with 8 kills, and 3 blocks.

Lakeview was led by Tara Lytle who finished with 10 kills on the day. 6 of them came in the first set. Brooke Schneider played good defense and had a match-high 21 digs. Pavlansky set up 19 assists.

Crestview heads on to another test as they play Heartland on Saturday. Lakeview will look to change their fortunes as they return home to host South Range.


YOUNGSTOWN OH- Lakeview continued to roll through their schedule on Wednesday with a sweep of Mooney that moved their record to 13-0 (25-22 25-12 25-18).
