Lee Olenyik

Senior, Lee Olenyik sat the
bench his freshman year of high
school on the junior varsity team.
Three years later, as a senior, Olenyik
took over as the star player
on the varsity team, receiving first
team all-conference and region
awards.
Olenyik’s top performance this
year came against Hanover County
rival, Patrick Henry in a game
where he recorded 15 kills and 10
blocks.
“The game against Patrick Henry
was definitely my favorite because
we had played them earlier
in the year and lost, but came out
the next time and smacked them,”
Olenyik said.

The Hanover Hawks girls volleyball
team has seen much success
this year, cruising their way
through the first round of the
playoffs into the state tournament.
Much of this is due to the strong
play of sophomore Kylie Tuxford.
Tuxford has been in top form
this post season, putting up big
numbers in multiple outings. In the
regional semifinals, she had 11 digs
to go with her 26 kills. She credits
her play to the bond that the team
has.
“The whole team has come together
and the chemistry has been
there. We never let our emotions
determine whether we win or lose,”
Tuxford said.
Tuxford was awarded with second
team all-conference honors for
her play.
