Graduating with the class of 2017, Alexis Long and Julianna DiMarco, will be turning in their high school KBV jerseys, and beginning a new chapter in their lives. Both of these girls have greatly impacted the program and the girls participating in it. Alexis Long, JV star freshmen year, was quickly moved up to varsity during her sophomore year of high school. Julianna, on the other hand, played JV volleyball her first two years at Kenston High School, and finished off the season strong, playing on the varsity team her last two years. This outside hitter and libero each suffered serious injuries within their last volleyball season. During warm-ups of the Kenston vs. Solon game, Alexis stepped on someone’s foot from underneath the net, fell down wrong, and sprained her ankle. Sadly, Alexis had to sit on the bench for the next 7 games to give her ankle time to heal properly. On the 8th game, eager to play, Alexis got back in the game with her ankle still swollen. Also in the warm-ups, of Walsh vs. Kenston game, believe it or not, Julianna was set to swing from the outside a little too tight, fell into the net, and tore her ACL. Still to this day, Julianna undergoes the pain that follows her from this game. Their thoughts on the program were, “Even though this season had many ups and downs, we are going to miss the KBV family.” Alexis Long and Julianna DiMarco contributed a lot to the KBV program, and will be immeasurably missed.
