Lady Ranger spikers on top in league play
By Misty Volaski
This is a big season for the
Nordhoff varsity girls' volleyball crew. With six seniors and
a 9-1 record, the Lady Rangers are looking like a force in the
Frontier League not seen in several years.
Seniors Brittney Ferro, Alison Bennett, Shannon Bryant, Stephanie
Sproul, Lianne Zimmermann and Lindsay Collier are leading the
squad this year both in statistics and spirit.
The girls' per-game averages speak for themselves.
Ferro, a setter, has an average of 25 assists and two aces per
game. Teammate and fellow senior Bennett (also of Ranger basketball
fame) hands out an average of 13 kills and three aces a game.
Holley Meisch leads the team in digs per game with 15, followed
by Bryant and Amie Cresto with 10 digs each. Bryant also adds
an average of six kills and two aces to Nordhoff's score per
game, while Flasch gets in eight digs, 11 kills three aces and
three blocks a game.
The girls recently took first
place in the consolation bracket in the San Luis Obispo Tournament,
and went on to take third in the Carpinteria Tournament. In Carp,
Ferro was awarded with All-Tournament honors.
The Lady Rangers took on Oaks Christian yesterday; results were
unavailable as of press time. They will play at Santa Clara
High School in Oxnard tomorrow at 5 p.m. Junior varsity will
at 4 p.m.
