Volleyball Win Streak Reaches Nine With Sweep of Concordia, 3-0

NYACK, NY (October 23, 2013)

Warrior volleyball swept the trio of games (12-25, 15-25, 22-25) and further secured the team's toehold on the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference volleyball standings.

The 3-0 win over Concordia on Wednesday evening allowed for Nyack to reach 11-2 and 15-11 overall, while the Lady Clippers are down to 1-12 and 1-12. The Warriors won their ninth straight match, but the Clippers were not about to give that third set up without a fight.

In the first match Nyack came out early with an 8-0 run to gain the advantage and pull away with the win leading 1-0. The second match was played without the tremendous efforts of outside hitter Deborah Schendel due to an injury that occurred in the match, but the Warriors prevailed a solid effort for the victory.

Being down 0-2, Concordia could feel the pressure. In a hard fought match Concordia would take the lead with 17-16 until Nyack reclaimed the lead at 22-23 and then followed through with the 3-0 sweep.

Irina Impellittiere led the Clippers with 7 kills and Brittany Chappas with  a match high of 19 digs.

On the Warrior side Samantha Garza posted 11 kills and 2 blocks while Michelle Makela recorded 16 digs.
