Volleyball | Ciara Yon
Yon was pretty valuable to the Granite City Warriors’ volleyball team at the Granite City Fall Classic on Sept. 19.
“She served extremely well today and came up with some plays that she usually doesn’t (make),” Granite City coach Ginger Harrison said of the junior libero following the tournament. “She’s been working hard in cleaning up her passing and reacting to the ball quicker and better.”
Yon’s strong effort earned her a spot on the all-tournament team at the five-team Granite City tournament. It was Yon’s first all-tournament award of her high school volleyball career.
The performance earned Yon this week’s Granite City AdVantage News Athlete of the Week award.
Yon and the Warriors finished 0-2-2 in the Granite City tournament. The Warriors lost to Highland and Red Bud and finished with ties with Civic Memorial and Southwestern.
Yon is playing in her third season with the Granite City volleyball team. She joined the varsity squad during her sophomore year.
