Varsity Volleyball vs Greens Farms Academy – Home
The KO Varsity Volleyball team had a solid 3-0 win against Greens Farms for our first home game of the season.
After settling in and getting some wonderful support from friends and family in the stands, the Wyverns dug into the first set and came back from an initial deficit. Quin Kearney ‘23 took on a new position in the middle of the front row, making strong net plays and joining forces with Co-captain Jill Plaut ‘23 to meet GFA’s outside hitting with well-timed blocks. Co-captain Keira Sullivan ‘23 was finding all the angles with her hits from the outside, which helped the team secure enough points early in the game to stay locked in it. Great deep serving from Jillian Alexander ‘24 and Lila Klinzmann ‘27 allowed the Wyverns to pull ahead, and Ava Cashman ‘24 sealed the deal with powerful cross court hitting and a clever push from the outside. KO succeeded in taking the set 25-21. The second set started with what is becoming a routine event already this season: Allie Arcaro ‘24 made a phenomenal defensive save with a one handed diving swipe that set the team up for an energetic second set. The defensive work continued with consistent blocking from Plaut, Kearney, Alexander, and Klinzmann that either denied or neutralized many of the offensives from GFA. With Plaut throwing in some offensive pushes with pinpoint accuracy, and Sullivan and Cashman finding creative attacks on the outside, the Wyverns won the second set 25-21. The third set saw KO taking an early lead and holding on as GFA fought back. Alex Segal ‘25 made her promising debut on the service line and backed up her offensive contributions with steady passing on defense. Jhanvi Daddala ‘23 took charge in key net decisions in the middle, finding the precise time to redirect the ball or take a swing for a point. Cici Freeman ‘24 helped the team hold steady with solid serve receive and defensive consistency that GFA was unable to overcome. It was a great team effort that showed the variety of strengths at the Wyvern’s disposal, and they took the third set 25-23. We look forward to our game at St. Luke’s on 9/21!
