Volleyball: Boca’s Ruth Harrington nears 1,000 kills, school record 

By Jeff Greer

Boca outside hitter Ruth Harrington is closing in on a couple of records, not inconsequential considering Boca’s rise to volleyball powerhouse status in recent years.

Entering next week’s regional semifinal against Jupiter, Harrington is 11 kills shy of 1,000 career kills. That number, while impressive, would be even more significant if it’s a milestone along the way to 1,011, which would mean Harrington surpassed Lindsey Knapp, the school record holder for kills.

Harrington had 169 in 2009, 182 in 2010, 263 in 2011 and this season has 375, a single-season record at Boca.
