How much did Highlands volleyball improve this year?

Fort Thomas Matters Sports Reporter

The season once again came to an end in the 9th Region quarterfinals.

But it saw marked improvement for the Highlands Ladybirds volleyball team. Highlands improved four wins from each of the previous two seasons finishing 17-18 overall. Perennial 9th Region volleyball Notre Dame handled the Ladybirds, 3-0 (25-11, 25-4, 25-9) at Ryle on Tuesday.

That marked the final game for three Highlands seniors in middle blocker Jessica Ginter, setter Kaitlin Hall and outside hitter/defensive specialist Lauren Maines. The Ladybirds return seven juniors next season led by outside hitter Isabella Schultz and defensive specialist/setter Ellie Van Curen. Ginter had three kills and Hall recorded six assists and six digs.

“It was a rough night to say the least,” said Katelyn Sallee, Highlands Head Coach. “It ended a season that we can celebrate and move on from here.”

Highlands last won a region game in 2010. The Ladybirds last won a district championship in 2012 and last made the state tournament in 2004.
