Warren Area High School junior Teah Bines is another example of how versatile the Warren girls volleyball team (10-6) was this season. She has been playing “crazy good,” according to her coach. She had 26 assists, 11 service points, three aces, two kills and seven digs, in a 3-0 sweep of Franklin, and added 30 assists, 16 digs, two kills and one block in a 3-0 loss to Corry. On Thursday, she had another 20 assists and seven digs in a 3-0 win at Oil City. With the Lady Dragons losing nine seniors, Bines is one of the underclassmen who will take over leadership roles in 2014. For now, she’s the Times Observer Female Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Little Caesars.
