Fillies end 2017 at C2-7 sub-districts

Senior Alyssa Schurman blocks a hit from Hastings St. Cecilia.

By Jordyn Hulinsky

Sutton concluded the 2017 volleyball season at the C2-7 sub-districts in the play-in game against Hastings St. Cecilia. 

The Bluehawks earned the win in three sets, 25-17, 25-18 and 25-7, respectively. 

Three seniors played in their final game at the Grand Island Central Catholic gym against St. Cecilia: Alyssa Schurman, Melanie Schutte and Emily Van Lynden. 

In the final game, Schutte led in kills with nine of the team's 16, and she led the team with 105 this season. 

"Melanie Schutte was a constant presence in the front row for us," first-year Head Coach Shelli Mohnike said. "She finished the season leading the team in kills. She broke 100 in our last match. We asked a lot of her by playing multiple positions this season and in different capacities. She was able to adapt and still stay focused."
