Volleyball: Lady Spartans State Tourney Game Postponed

Amity’s 3-1 (25-18, 18-25, 25-17, 25-20) road victory over Mercy High of Middletown  Tuesday night in the semi-finals of  Southern Connecticut Conference  volleyball playoffs seemed to set the stage for the third meeting of the season between the Lady Spartans and Cheshire in Wednesday night’s Finals. That Finals match between the two long-time rivals was however cancelled by Wednesday’s snow storm. With the CIAC state tournaments set to begin on Thursday, there was no time to reschedule the SCC Finals. As a result of the forced cancellation, the SCC has decided that Amity and Cheshire will be declared the volleyball co-champions for 2012.

The Lady Spartans’ victory over Mercy featured excellent serving, solid hitting from Allison Denny, Rebecca Denny, and Sydnee Sousa along with the outstanding play of setter Kathryn Pisano, who recorded 22 assists, six digs, and was good on all 13 of her serves.

According to winning Coach Paul Thees, “I thought we played very well against Mercy and kept the pressure on them.  We went ahead with our game plan to work the setter side of the court on offense. In addition we had a good serving night, missing only five serves. Our motivation was the desire to get to the championship game against Cheshire.”

With the first game tied at 15-15, Claire Foster held her service for three points, followed shortly thereafter by a similar three point run from Allison Denny that gave Amity a 22-16 lead.

“We played smart in the first game and kept the Mercy setter occupied,” Thees said.

He attributed his team’s loss of the second game to its failure to attack the ball as it had done in the opening contest. In the later stages of Game No. 2, the Lady Spartans got within four points of the Tigers (22-18) but never any closer.

Thees added, “Mercy always seemed to have the lead in the second game and we never were able to catch up.”

 The third game was deadlocked at 17-17 when Allison Denny took over service and she proceeded to rack up the last eight points in a row. Thees felt his team totally dominated the fourth and final contest with the turning point being a four point run that gave the Black and Gold an insurmountable 19-11 advantage.

Rebecca Denny was 10 for 10 from the service line and had a team-high seven digs.

The SCC canceled Wednesday Night’s Girls Volleyball Championship Match. Cheshire and Amity were declared co-champions.

Amity (now 16-4 and ranked 11th  in Class LL) turns its attention to the first round of  the state tournament, where it would have hosted 22nd-ranked Norwich Free Academy Thursday at 5 p.m. The visiting Wildcats come in with a 7-9 record. THIS GAME HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
