DeSales’ Guanciale signs with Fairfield

Bella Guanciale of the DeSales High School girls volleyball team signed a letter of intent Feb. 6 to play for Fairfield University in Fairfield, Conn.

Guanciale, a libero from Westerville, earned first-team all-league, all-district and all-state honors and shared district Player of the Year honors with Hartley’s Molly Shonk as the Stallions went 26-3 last season and lost to eventual state champion Cleveland Heights Beaumont 25-19, 25-14, 17-25, 25-14 in a Division II state semifinal.

Guanciale had 341 digs and 141 points as DeSales went 7-1 in the CCL to win its first league championship since 2004.
