LIBERTY, Mo. — The Liberty North Eagles are soaring back to Missouri High School 6A volleyball's final four led by the play of junior Carlie Cisneros.

“She is a spark plug,” said Katie Dowden, head coach at Liberty North. “You can't miss her when she hits, she is someone that brings a lot of joy, has fun with her teammates, loves the game, loves the sport."

Cisneros delivered when her team needed it the most in Saturday’s quarterfinal matchup against St. Teresa’s, leading the team in kills and her team to victory.

For her effort, she was awarded KSHB 41's Hy-Vee High School Athlete of the week honors.

“I was able to lean on my teammates a lot and they were able to lean on me,” Cisneros said.

On Thursday, the team heads to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, for the state semifinals.

“If they need something, they know they can always come to me,” Cisneros said.
