floridaUniversity Christian 3 Florida 0 (25-18, 25-20, 25-13)

Yesterday, FSDB hosted the FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) Class 4A District 2 tournament. FSDB, seeded #6 faced #3 seed University Christian. The girls were in the lead some of the first and second sets, but weren’t able to carry that momentum throughout the match and ended up losing all three sets. Our season is now over, but we will still be hosting Districts tonight and Thursday night.

We end the season with a record of 8-16. Luckily, we’ll only lose one player this year. The girls will keep building on their skills and chemistry and next year will be even better. (Contributed by Head Coach Tiffany Kawohl)

marie-philipMarie Philip 3 New York 1 (25-2, 25-12, 10-25, 25-9)

Last Saturday the Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts visited the New York School for the Deaf Golden Tornadoes for a Homecoming volleyball match.

Our starters stayed for most of the first set. In the second set, we rested our two seniors and tried two 6th graders in their places. For the third set, all six substitutes started and stayed for the entire set. We went back to our normal lineup for the fourth set to close out the match. Everyone played at least two sets and got at least a statistic of some kind. That kind of match is always nice to coach.

Congratulations to Shayla Rochette for setting a school record for aces (28) and service points (38) in one match. She has been working hard on her serving and the result speaks for itself. Everyone made improvements of their own since Spike Out and we cannot wait for our next match. That will take place Tuesday when we host a local school with a new team, the Newman School.

Five Questions with Cassidy Perry, Junior, Maryland School for the Deaf Volleyball

marylandWhen did you start playing volleyball and what made you want to try the sport? After playing tackle football for several years in elementary school, my dad encouraged me to try volleyball in middle school. I started to play volleyball in sixth grade and realized that it’s fun. Also, I saw that I could have a future playing volleyball.

Landmark School visited us for a Independent Girls' Conference (IGC) rematch. The Vikings started all three sets with small leads, but our Lady Ghosts focused on improving individual skills, better teamwork, and having more fun with each other between serves. We were firing in all cylinders today and were able to overtake Landmark in all three sets. We have swept the season series with the Vikings and our league record now stands at 6-2.

stmarysRochester 3 St. Mary's 0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-10)

The Lady Bison faced off against the Rochester Wildcats in a pretty competitive game. We played against this team earlier in the season as a much “greener” team, but the girls made it obvious they’ve got some skill being developed. The Lady Bison lost three straight sets in some of the closest games we’ve played yet. Cameron Cole stepped up with four aces and two attacks at the net. Elise Watson and Kioney Alvira-Juardo each helped throughout the game with passing and keeping the ball in play. Everyone is still working to improve and their effort truly does show in their performance. Who knows the next time we face RSD maybe we will come out on top. (Contributed by Head Coach Wendy Chuba)

new-yorkNew York @ SpikeOut Division 2 Volleyball Tournament

New York School for the Deaf’s volleyball team travelled to Maryland School for the Deaf in beautiful Frederick, Maryland for Spike Out XIX tournament. Twelve Deaf schools were part of this exciting tournament and they were divided into two divisions for this tournament. Fanwood’s volleyball team was part of Division II along with Lexington School for the Deaf, Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Michigan School for the Deaf, Rochester School for the Deaf, Marie Philip School.

We started the tournament with round robin matches to determine the bracket seeding. We lost all five games against five different schools. Fanwood’s team ended up with a #6 seed. It was new experience for our players because the gym was full of high-energy fans! On Friday night, all of schools went to Hood College in Frederick where we had an opportunity to watch Gallaudet University’s volleyball play against Hood. The players were inspired by this game. After the volleyball game, we watched Maryland School for the Deaf’s football game. Some of Fanwood’s girls have never watch a Deaf football team playing before.

We started the bracket tournament against Rochester School for the Deaf but we lost to them 2-0, (25-9, 25-17). Anjel and Alora each earned a kill. As a team, the players earned 19 serving points. It was a frustrating game for some of players but they continue to develop their skills.

Next game, we played against Michigan School for the Deaf. It was very exciting game. The players showed their true skills and played very well especially with their passing skills. We lost the game against them 2-0, (25-16, 25-23). Coach Morris was very satisfied with this game because they played with their hearts. As a result, Fanwood’s volleyball placed 6th for Division II. Anjel earned five serving points and two kills. Alora earned 10 serving points, two kills, and a block. Leslie Ramirez and Silmara each earned one assist. In the end of tournament, we won sportsmanship award for Division II.

The players left Frederick, Maryland with a positive experience and fond memories. They were very sad that tournament had ended. Even thought we placed 6th for Division II but the players learned so much and had a lot of fun. Also, they had wonderful opportunity meeting many old friends & new friends. Maryland School for the Deaf, thank you for being a wonderful host. (Contributed by Head Coach Kandace Morris)

rochesterRochester 3 St Mary's 0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-10)

We decided to go back to using the 5-1 rotation after trying to use 4-2 rotation in the last three games. The Wildcats were 1-2 at the SpikeOut tournament using the 4-2 rotation. We realized that 5-1 rotation is a better way for us to play and some position adjustments were also made. The changes were positive as we swept St. Mary’s in three sets.

michiganLandmark Academy 3 Michigan 0 (25-9, 25-16, 25-12)

We were missing our senior setter, so some changes had to be made. The girls adjusted well, but our Tartar spirit just wasn’t there. Rina Manssora was back playing and made some crucial decisions. We beat our serving record in the third set with 92%. When the Tartars are hard on themselves the girls make more mistakes, especially while receiving. Addison Blair is becoming a fast setter and saving a lot of poor passes. She shined tonight getting three kills, two assists, two aces, serving at 90%, and received a whopping 25 serves at 76%. Wendy Chicky was attacking and serving at 100% today. (Contributed by Head Coach Lindsay Lantagne)
