The Lady Spartans had a pretty stellar season with only three losses (2 to Cheshire and 1 to Daniel Hand), so when they went up against Hand in the first round of the SCC Championship competition (the Quarterfinal) everyone knew it was anyone’s game.
Amity came out on top in all three games: 25-19, 25-23, 25-14
Spectators could not help but notice that Hand played well, but with the same six players all night and they were tired by the third game.
Amity, the number 2 seed moves on in the tourney and will play the winner of the Mercy-Foran game on Wednesday (at Amity).
First year coach Seth Davis said it is very rewarding to win the first game leading into the tournament.
“Hand has a good team and they played well,” Davis said. “From here we move forward.”
Amity’s noteworthy players from Monday’s game:
Katie Helfenbein had 11 kills and 1 block; Kathleen Walsh had 8 kills; Haley Pierson had 35 assists and 3 digs.
Hand’s noteworthy players:
Krissy LaSance had 8 kills and 14 digs; Chika Ogbejesi had 18 assists.
