YOUNGSTOWN, OH – The Ursuline Irish are coming down the home stretch of a very successful regular season on the volleyball court, and a large part of the success this season has been due to the experience on the court this year for the Irish. Gracie Pesa has one of the most crucial jobs in the game, and that’s serving. Without a good serve, you can put your team at a disadvantage during the rally, but due to the skill of Pesa, that is something that rarely ever happens.

Kelly Peplowski has been huge for the Irish all season long both attacking and defensively at the net for Ursuline, currently ranking second on the team in kills and blocks. Gracie, Kelly, and their teammates have jumped out to a 13-6 record, and with little time remaining in the regular season, the Irish are hoping to hit their stride at the right time.

In this week’s Player Profile, Pesa and Peplowski talk about their journey at Ursuline, their favorite part about the sport, and more!
