LS notches first win
Lake Shore’s girls volleyball team took home its first league victory of the season after a back-and-forth contest with rival Iroquois on Friday.
Abbey Hanes and Kendal Haberer, whom coach Brian Dziewa called his “key players,” combined for 13 kills and five aces.
The two, both juniors and skilled outside hitters, are among the most experienced players returning to Lake Shore’s roster.
The team lost four to graduation last spring and another two left for basketball, Dziewa said.
Lake Shore’s roster still features plenty of juniors and seniors. 8th grader Mariah Joslyn has stood out as well.
