As the Oakton High volleyball team won the silver bracket of the Washington-Lee Tournament over the weekend, two of its players moved up in the program's record book.
Emma Olson surpassed her older sister, Sami ('10), on the all-time aces list after the tournament at Washington-Lee. With 112 career aces after the Edison and Flint Hill matches, Olson is now nine aces away from Karalee Thomas' ('10) school record of 121.
"It's definitely really cool, and the team is really helpful with that just by allowing me the opportunity to serve a lot during games," Olson said. "The only way I get back there is if we sideout, and our sideouts are great and we're really, really good at getting the ball back and keeping the serves running."
Misa Mori took over fourth place on Oakton's all-time kill list, passing 2009 graduate Sally Wreen. After matches against Edison High and Flint Hill School this week, Mori now boasts 316 career kills — 36 away from Kailey Flanagan's ('07) third-place ranking.
"I'm really honored," Mori said. "Up until now I've just looked up to the seniors before me so much, so this is just amazing."
More than halfway through the season, the two seniors and the rest of the Cougars have an 11-5 record.
