AUSTINTOWN OH- Austintown Fitch volleyball is loaded with seniors. Seven of them to be exact, and that includes possibly one of the best outside hitters in the area. Chelsie Wheeler has been a staple in the Falcon’s offense for some time. She has tremendous instincts as a hitter, and reads the defense extremely well. She is looking to go out with a bang in her senior season, and it couldnt have gotten off to a better start. She helped her team beat Canfield for the first time in a long time. That victory was big for the team morale in Austintown, but Chelsie knows there is still work to be done as the season stretches on.
As of now, Chelsie sits at 410 kills in 163 sets played. She also has collected over 100 digs in her career. Her career hitting percentage is .208. Cheslie averages 2.5 kills per set in her career. That number may sky rocket this season as the Falcons have already started to use her a lot on the outside.
Chelsie graciously gave her time to talk with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig. They discuss being a part of such a big senior class, personal and team goals for the season, and so much more. Hear from one of the premiere hitters in the area in the latest Fitch Volleyball player profile, Wheels Keep Turning.
