The Lady Knights lost to Genesee Community college from Batavia, NY in three straight games and then fell the host County College of Morris three games to one to knock them out of the tourney. With the two losses the Lady Knights end the season with an impressive 25-8 record a tremendous improvement from last year when they went 9-15, a plus 16 in the win column is a great sign for the future of the Lady Knights Volleyball Program.
Match one: CCRI loses to Genesee CC 16-25, 7-25 and 18-25
Their opening match of the district tournament the Lady Knights faced Genesee Community College and lost in three straight games. The Cougars of Genesee and Lady Knights have along history of meeting in this tournament the only time the Lady Knight had come out on top was in 2008. The Lady Knights played great and played with tremendous passion. However the Cougars of Genesee were just a stronger and faster team. The Lady Knights fought hard through to the very end but came up short on this match.
Match two: CCRI loses to CC Morris 30-32, 25-20, 22-25 and 20-25
In their second match the Lady Knights faced the County College of Morris in a must-win game or they would be out of the tournament. The two teams played four extremely close matches with the Lady Knights getting the short end of the stick. The first game took seven extra points for Morris to pull out the narrow 32-30 victory. The Lady Knights came back to win game two 25-20 but then were narrowly edged again by Morris in game three 22-25 before falling in the final game 20-25 thus ending their season.
Head Coach Samantha Reyes commented after the match: “It was a sad loss. I came in thinking we were going to play. However the girls did not play to their full potential. Annie Ragan (North Kingstown, RI) and Paula Cadavid-Palacio(Lincoln, RI) did their best to keep us in the game leading the team in kills and digs”
After a great improvement this season the Lady Knights look to continue on their upward path with the goal of winning to the Districts and making it to Nationals.
