Led by senior Kaitlin Weidner and a strong junior class, including a previous Athlete of the Week in Allyssa Kerr, the Lady Lions are off the a 5-0 start in 2013. This week, WCCS’ strong serving was on display in sweeps over Jamestown Bethel Baptist, Tidioute Charter and Erie First Christian, junior Dymphee Zortman had 52 service points, 17 aces and nine kills in nine games. Representing a balanced attack, Zortman served with the Times Observer Female Athlete of the Week honor, sponsored by Little Caesar’s.
