  11-25), and Western New England College (22-25, 27-29, 23-25). Though we were down our
  starting middle Jori Belkin, (she is currently being treated for a stress fracture) we were
  fortunate enough to have Liz Reid and Leighanne Sherrow recently join our team after being
  excellent practice players for the past month. In our match against Oneonta, sophomore Liz
  Reid had an exciting match recording her first 3 collegiate kills on her first 3 attempts. On
  Saturday against Westfield, sophomore Leighanne Sherrow took over the setting role for
  Kelsey Lawler. In her debut, Leighanne posted 15 assists and 5 digs. Against WNEC
  sophomore Alex Singh had 6 kills, 3 aces, and 8 digs. The weekend concluded with Jo Fier
  receiving all-Tournament Team recognition.
          In our most recent match we went up against Cazenovia College (24-26, 25-14, 25-20,
  20-25, 12-15). Jo Fier and Rachel Irizarry had a good offensive night with 14 and 11 kills
  respectively. The defense was led by Amber O’Connor with 25 digs, along with Kelsey
  Lawler, and Alex Singh who each had 22 digs. Kelsey also tallied 35 assists on the night.
  Up next we are at the Keuka College Tournament where we will face SUNY Cobleskill, SUNY
