Sophia Sobeski, St. Thomas More No. 6 3-0 1.000
Each Monday, prep sports coordinator Anthony Zilis will take a look at five area events to circle on the calendar:
■ St. Thomas More 2, Mahomet-Seymour 1. Brianna Hopper had eight kills and Mica Allison and Hayes Murray each recorded 14 assists for the Sabers in their 14-25, 25-17, 25-9 win at Mahomet. Grace Beach had 11 kills and Elizabeth Sproat had 12 digs for the Bulldogs.
Why he was chosen: The senior recorded a hat trick and assisted on the Bulldogs’ other goal during a 4-2 home win against Urbana Uni High and followed that up with two goals in a 4-1 win at Charleston.
CHAMPAIGN — Last season, the choice was clear for St. Thomas More coach Jim Tressler.
Sophomores Caroline Waddell and Mia Stipes gave STM the top shot to make a state run, so they were the choices at No. 1 doubles when the postseason came. With a much more mature lineup this year, though, Tressler and the Sabers have the luxury of depth.
■ Centennial 2, Urbana 0. Ashia Ravanh had three kills, Raevyn Russell had two kills and Maddie Sanders had four digs for the Tigers in their 25-13, 25-11 loss to the Chargers. Claire Cowser had seven digs for Centennial.
