Girls volleyball team winning despite youth


Seven sophomores and freshmen are among the Hartley girls volleyball team’s key players this season.

That’s a factor coach Mike Rahe has reminded himself of when the Hawks have struggled, although that hasn’t happened often.

After beating Gahanna 23-25, 25-21, 25-18, 25-23 on Sept. 28, Hartley was 11-2 overall.

They finished 4-2 in the CCL with both losses to Watterson, including 23-25, 22-25, 25-16, 25-19, 16-14 on Sept. 22.

“We’ve just got some growing to do,” Rahe said. “The CCL is always tough, and when you get a team down (two games to none) you’ve got to win it, you can’t try to not lose. Our average age is 14.8 and we’ve got work to do.”

The Division II district tournament drawing is Sunday, Oct.11, and Hartley is expected to be one of the area’s highest seeds. Early round competition will begin Oct. 19.
