Ranger volleyball continues to beat opponents with ease

The ladies are rolling, now 3-0 in the regular season, by sweeping each opponent in three sets.
It is no surprise that the girls would show signs of early success, but what some may not have seen coming is the strong play from a couple of younger members of the team.

It’s no surprise that junior Avery Weslow, now a three-year varsity team member, would greatly impact the Ranger’s play. Last night was clear evidence of why she has been on varsity since freshman year. As usual, she played great in every aspect of the game, but she wasn’t the only junior who got the crowd’s attention last night.

Juniors Elana Kavanagh and Maggie Sneider are a dangerous duo at the net. Yesterday evening’s game against the Northview Wildcats showcased their ability to block and set up scoring opportunities for each other and their teammates.

“I think Elana and Maggie were a big part of our win last night; they helped out a lot,” Junior Avery Weslow said.

Elana goes on to say that she loves this team and is glad that she can help her team get the win on the court. She accounts for her success in her ability to block shots from her opponents and get a few hits here and there.

“Elana Kavanagh has some strong hits from the middle,” said senior captain Sarah Dunn. “Along with Avery Weslow, who always plays well, and [senior] Kate Hotaling kept some great hits alive, allowing us to have success in the front row.”

The ladies are already showing signs of bonding as a team which is one of the most critical aspects of this game. The stronger a team is connected, the harder they are to defeat. The Rangers have some tough opponents in their regular season and their Walled Lake Invite tournament tomorrow at nine a.m.
