Marani breaks record
December 01, 2010 - Standing just over six feet, junior Stephanie Marani has a presence on the volleyball court.
Her quick reactions led to her breaking a 17-year-old blocking record for the Clarkston Girls Varsity Volleyball team of 132 blocks.
She ended her season with 174 blocks, seven were from the team's last game in the quarterfinals against Farmington Hills Mercy.
Marani divided her time during the fall season with the volleyball team and with the Clarkston High School Marching Band.
She joins 54 of her fellow band members when they leave on Dec. 27 for England.
They will play in the 25th Anniversary New Year's Day Parade in London.
Wendi graduated from the University of Michigan-Flint with a degree in communications. She wrote for the Michigan Times college paper and Grand Blanc View before joining The Clarkston News in October 2007.
