THE SKINNY

Glenbard West (6-1) didn’t make many mistakes, easily handling Trinity (0-3) in a nonconference contest Thursday in River Forest.

TURNING POINT

The Hilltoppers got out to fast starts in both games. In Game 1, they jumped out to a 9-3 lead after four straight service points by senior Meg DeMaar. In Game 2, Glenbard West held a 10-1 advantage thanks to four service points apiece from sophomore Katie Ball and senior transfer student Abbey Winkler (St. Francis).

THE STAR

Winkler, a senior, had 26 assists in the win. She was able to gel with her new team and distributed the ball to the perfect spots.

BY THE NUMBERS

Junior outside hitter Alison Burelbach, who had a back injury last year and then had surgery on her right hand this summer, had six kills and 10 digs. Sophomore Natalie Schilling (10 kills, six digs), Ball (four kills, two aces) and DeMaar (10 digs, two aces) also contributed for the Hilltoppers. Sophomore Dimitra Gritzanis had five kills for Trinity.

QUOTABLE

“For the first time, I really saw this team mesh together. We have two sophomores, a ton of juniors and I’m a transfer. We all just started clicking as a team. I think this is a really good starting point for us.” — Winkler
