WINNETKA — The Glenbrook South girls volleyball team had the best finish among local teams in New Trier’s Summer’s End Tournament on Saturday.

The Titans finished third overall. Huntley won the 16-team event by defeating Warren in the championship game. Zion-Benton was fourth.

Loyola triumphed over a pair of familiar opponentson Saturday. The Ramblers beat Niles West in three sets to start the day and then took fifth place by defeating New Trier in two sets.

The Trevians, who finished third in Class 4A a year ago, have had a great deal of turnover on their roster since last year due to graduations. The two-day tournament was largely about evaluation for New Trier coach Hannah Hsieh.

“Most of our team doesn’t have varsity-level playing experience yet, and this is their first time under the lights,” Hsieh said. “We need to look at where we are right now, and then we have a vision with where we want to be.”

The Trevians defeated Glenbrook North in the teams’ first match of the day. Niles West then beat the Spartans in three sets to finish seventh overall. Glenbrook North took eighth.

Niles North, which played Saturday at Glenbrook North, finished 11th at the tournament.
