Norris versus Waverly. It’s a volleyball rivalry synonymous with close battles and thrilling finishes.

Tuesday’s match was no different.

The two teams exchanged huge swings throughout the five-set gauntlet. Each side produced clutch scoring runs when the stakes were highest. And, in the end, the home-standing Titans were victorious, 3-2.

Amid the roaring crowd and infectious energy, I saw some outstanding performances across these two talented rosters. Few words can do justice to this incredible match, but I can at least give you some names that stood out!

Here’s a look at some notable efforts from a Tuesday night to remember!

Jelinek is one of several Titan hitters who can swing from anywhere along the net. I saw this junior hitter terminate on the slide and from either pin on the outside. This Norris roster is defined by players who can do anything to help their team succeed. In Jelinek’s case, I liked her swings on the left pin most of all. She took some seriously assertive swings late in the match that gave the Titans a huge boost. Her impact is undeniable.
