Zach Kelly, Silliman Institute

It would be hard to have a game better than the one Kelly had in the Wildcats’ 43-7 victory over Heritage Academy. The senior quarterback compiled 452 total yards, including 352 rushing yards on 15 carries with four TDs. Kelly also completed 7 of 15 passes for 100 yards and two TDs.

“Our line really put it on the other team and when they do that it’s easy to run behind them,” Kelly said. “I was pleased with the way I ran and passed the ball, but the thing I was most pleased about was not turning the ball over. Any time you don’t turn it over, you’ve got a better chance to win.”

Jordan Stephens, Central

Stephens helped the Division I Wildcats win eight matches during the week, including five en route to the Episcopal Invitational title. She finished the week with 86 kills, including 20 in a nondistrict win over Division I St. Amant. “Our defense was really good last week,” Stephens said. “When the defense plays well that makes it easier for the setter to get the ball to me in the right place for the kill.

“I like it best when I get to hit down the line. I thought I hit the ball well, but the big thing for us as a team is defense.”
