Birkey sisters end Grace run
By JASON OGLE, Special to the Plain Dealer
Scan through Grace College’s volleyball statistical leaders the past two seasons and you’ll find either Amber or Brittni Birkey atop most of the lists.
Ask either sister if individual accomplishments concern them–“No,” said Amber, the oldest of the two Southwood graduates.
“The individual stuff is nice, but they don’t matter if they don’t help the team win.”
Last season, the Lancers finished 12-14 and just 2-7 in the Mid-Central Conference, marking their second straight losing season. But not because the Birkey sisters didn’t produce.
