Defeats Irvington and North Salem in straight sets
The Haldane volleyball team upped its record to 10-4 after defeating Irvington and North Salem, both in straight sets.
Haldane recovered from a slow start against North Salem on Tuesday (Oct. 2) to win 25-17, 25-15, 25-14. “A couple of quick kills from Willa [Fitzgerald] turned the game around,” said Coach Kelsey Flaherty. “We did a nice job on serve receiving.”
Fitzgerald had seven kills for Haldane, and Melissa Rodino added 13 assists and a pair of aces.
“Sophia Viggiano and Olivia Montelone had some great passes, which led to our offense being successful,” Flaherty said. “Maria Barry did an excellent job placing the ball to open spots across the net.”
On Sept. 27 against Irvington, Fitzgerald had seven kills and three aces; Monteleone had 12 digs, and Rodino ended with 17 assists and four aces. “We played outstanding,” said Flaherty. “We rarely let balls hit the floor.”
Haldane was scheduled to visit Ossining today (Oct. 5) and will host Poughkeepsie at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
