Purdue recruit seams to have done herself well, MVP of all star competition see below:
"Taller South team takes 3-of-4 games in volleyball match
Overcoming Whitney Billings of Pelham High and Catherine Rebarchak of St. Paul's was a tall order for the North volleyball team on Thursday at Spragins Hall.
Not only because the two had height with Billings at 6-2 and Rebarchak at 6-1, but also because of their skill.
Add two great setters in Nancy Taylor of St. Paul's and Lauren Reibe of Bayside, plus libero Taylor Givens of Bayside and the South team was too much to overcome in the best-of-five All-Stars Sports Week contest.
The South won 25-19, 30-28, 26-28, 25-21, a victory that cuts the North series lead to 8-4.
"We were a little more well-rounded," South coach Ann Schilling of Bayside said. "There is a lot of tradition in these school programs."
The North had won three straight years in this series, something that was not lost on the South players. "We played hard," Billings said. "We were excited and came out ready to go. Nobody expected us to win."
Rebarchak, a Purdue signee and the South's Most Valuable Player, was glad for a second lineup change during the contest. "Mixing up the lineup in the third game was kind of a downfall," she said. "In the fourth game we went back to the first lineup."
Rebarchak and Billings each contributed 14 kills, where the South had a 42-40 advantage. Rebarchak also had eight blocks."
