Seabury volleyball goes 1-1 at regionals

October 22, 2008


— The Seabury Academy volleyball team's season is over after going 1-1 on Tuesday at the Class 1A regionals.

Seabury defeated Kansas School for the Deaf, 25-15, 25-17, but fell to Elwood, 23-25, 25-15, 25-4, to finish tied for third.

In their victory, the Seahawks had 14 service aces and 13 kills as a team. Callie Noller had nine service aces, and Jamie Fischer recorded a .571 hitting percentage. First-year Seabury coach Chrissy Leuty noted Charlotte Burch for her solid passing and serving and Bria Phipps for her passing.

Leuty said the Seahawks played the best they have all season at regionals, but their inexperience caught up with them in the match against Elwood.

In the loss, Seabury had 17 kills and 11 service aces as a team. Phipps had 10 kills, five service aces, six digs and a .360 hitting percentage.

The Seahawks finished the season 5-25, but Leuty said she was proud of her team.

"The girls improved just as I would have hoped for them to," Leuty said. "They've come a long way since I took over in August."
