Hannah Warrington led Liberty-Benton’s volleyball team in a number of areas on Monday.

Now, the all-Ohio senior leads the Eagles in the record book as well.

Warrington turned in a monster performance on Monday, and set a school record in the process, in leading the state-ranked Eagles past Van Buren, 25-15, 25-11, 25-9 in their final Blanchard Valley Conference match of the season. Warrington was 19 of 19 serving with three aces, 22 of 23 spiking with 12 kills and registered 17 digs. Those 17 digs gave Warrington 1,067 for her career, allowing her to surpass the school record of 1,060 established by Gabby Lyon in 2016.

Liberty-Benton, ranked No. 2 in the state in Division III, improved to 19-2 overall and completed a 10-0 run through the BVC. The Eagles won all 10 of their league matches in straight sets.

“Not giving up a set in the BVC, that was one of our goals and knowing this was our last BVC game we wanted to finish that out,” said eighth-year L-B coach Julie Todd. “I think it’s been a long time since any team did that.”

Izzy Granger added 13 kills and Karis Willow (12-12 spiking) had 10 for a Liberty-Benton attack that took good advantage of Alissa Rhodes’ 68 of 68 setting and 35 assists.

“We set goals, and one of them is to run an efficient offense,” Todd said. “Alissa is such a good player and we have five go-to hitters. If we’re hitting well, we’re hard to beat.”

Granger (11-11 serving, 3 aces) added 11 digs and Emma Otley had nine. Schy Shepherd had six kills and Caitlin Elseser four kills and four blocks as the Eagles wrapped up a third straight outright BVC title.

Liberty-Benton completes regular-season play Wednesday at Eastwood. Regional runner-up a year ago, the Eagles open tournament play on Oct. 16 at home against Lima Bath.

Van Buren (16-5, 7-3 BVC) got 11 assists from Lindsey Shaw, Emma Reineke had four kills and Sophia Reineke had seven digs and three kills. Sophia Reineke, Izzie Pawlak and Olivia Cramer each had an ace.
