Remsen St. Mary's and Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn put on quite a display in their conference meeting Tuesday, October 14, according to RSM head coach Teena Dreckman.
"It was a really good match-up tonight," said Dreckman. "There were some volleys that just seemed to last five minutes. It was back and forth all night."
The teams went back and forth in the first two games, with RSM winning the first 25-13 and M-M-C the second, 25-17. The Hawks took over after the second game, winning the final two games and the match 26-24 and 25-20.
RSM now must prepare for their season finale against conference leader Unity at home. Dreckman says that she believes her team can compete with Unity.
"If we play like we did tonight-we looked good in every aspect of the game. Our hitting was really on. Megan Homan did a great job up at the net tonight," said Dreckman. "Serving was very good too. We're starting to play like we want to at this point of the season. I'm excited for Thursday night, to see what we can do against Unity."
The win improved the Hawks to 5-3 in the War Eagle.
