A senior at Valencia High School, Lauren Russ is an outside hitter for the Vikings girls’ volleyball team. Last week Lauren scored 20 kills and notched 13 digs in the Vikings’ 3-1 win over West Ranch. The two schools were co-champions of the Foothill League a season ago. This season the Vikings are 3-1 in the league so far.
“Lauren had a great weekend at the Nike Tournament of Champions in Phoenix,” said Valencia High School girls’ volleyball coach Ray Sanchez. “She led the team to a 5-2 record and the championship of the Sapphire Division, where she was named the MVP.”
