Revere girls volleyball team led by ‘excellent group’ of seniors
BATH — According to Revere High School girls volleyball head coach Mark Uhrich, this year’s team features a “great mix” of youth and experience.
However, the coach added, the strength of this year’s team is the quality of its senior class.
“Every training session they lead by example and help push all the players towards quality training sessions,” he stated. “The seniors on this year’s team are an excellent group of players and leaders. They keep the team pointed in the right direction.”
This year’s seniors, with comments on each by Uhrich, are:
• Outside hitter Anna Warren (team captain): “A tremendous all-around player, she does everything exceptionally well.”
• Setter Charity Gibbs: “She plays with passion every play.”
• Middle hitter Gabrielle Vitez: “She is one of the best middle attackers/blockers ever to play at Revere.”
• Setter Julia Moskaluk (team captain): “She has the opportunity to play Division III volleyball and is pursuing several prospective colleges.”
• Right side Madi McIntyre: “She never, ever stops playing hard. Her motor is always on full go.”
The team also has a strong core of juniors, Uhrich said.
“Our junior class is fantastic,” he stated. “Meredith Ruetty (second-team Suburban League and district), Adrianna Farian, Abby Cerveny, Nicole Heckman, Alyssa Fetzer and Sylvia Beckner form a solid core for this year and next.”
Uhrich said Revere’s underclassmen this season are led by a pair of sophomores: outside hitter Stephanie Bierman and setter Sarah Eley.
“Both players are smart and fundamentally sound players,” he stated. “Stephanie has all the tools — great attacker, server, defender and passer. Sarah has the ability to make any set on the court.”
Last season, Revere finished 19-5 overall and 12-2 in the Suburban League. The team finished in second place in the league and made it to the district semifinals.
Through Sept. 16, the team’s record this season was 7-4 overall and 5-1 in league play.
“We are finishing our first rotation through the Suburban league Tuesday (Sept. 18) at home against Wadsworth (6-0 in the Suburban League),” Uhrich said. “Then we start our second rotation through the Suburban League on Thursday (Sept. 20) at Tallmadge.”
Uhrich, who is in his 12th year as the coach, is assisted by Dan Smith.
“One of the great aspects of coaching high school sports is every year you have to find new pieces to the team building puzzle,” Uhrich said. “Over the last couple of weeks, our players are putting in quality training sessions that have resulted in positive outcomes on match night, and the pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall in place.”
