2018-19 Girls Volleyball
The Varsity White Volleyball team played in the Nativity Invitational Tournament this past weekend. Facing teams from across Western New York, our Lady Knights just 7 players strong competed against teams of 12 and 13. Ss Peter & Paul finished pool play in second with wins over St. Mary’s White and Nativity White; losing to dominant Nativity Red by just 5. Team contributions included great service runs by Kaitlin and Cassidy with quality returns by Quinn and sets by Mariah. The quarterfinal became a grudge match against rival Immaculate Conception who beat the Knights in their double header Friday night. Great net play by Savannah and Mariah kept the games close while Cassidy and call-up Carly each provided a half dozen service wins with multiple aces. Oaklie and Kaitlin also contributed to the dominance behind the line, pushing the Knights past IC, 18-25, 25-11, 15-9 and into the semifinals against the 8th grade team from St. John Vianney. Mariah and Carly returned some powerful serves along with consistent sets for hitters Cassidy and Kaitlin to put them away for points. As part of the exciting comeback, Quinn got her first serve over, but the team fell just 2 points short of advancing.
Congratulations Knights on your third place finish!
