Vitek plays in optimist
By Jarann Johnson
Last week Morgan Vitek wrapped up her high school volleyball career. Vitek helped the West earn a split against the East in the Optimist Volleyball Series, which is an event pitting the best Class A and B seniors in the state against each other.
The East won the first game in four close sets; 25-22, 28-30, 25-22, 25-17 and the West won the next day 3-1: 25-23, 25-19, 25-18, 12-25.
Vitek said she was excited to be selected for the most prestigious high school volleyball game in the state.
“I was really excited because past teammates had done it before. I really knew that was my goal. That I wanted to be able to do it too. When I got it and it came true I was so excited for it,” Vitek said.
When the girls for the West team first met Vitek said it was different from her usual practice with the Center-Stanton girls because there was a lack of familiarity.
