I’m still trying to track down all the information from the Minisink tournament, but I want to post what I have while it is still somewhat relevant. If you have any other scores or all-tournament information that is not listed, please let me know and I will update!
John Jay took gold at the Minisink Valley tournament on Saturday, topping Shenendehowa in the finals, 25-17, 23-25, 22-20. The final game was a win-by-two game to 15 points. The Indians, who finished second in the tournament last year, went 7-1 in pool play before edging an undefeated Shenendehowa team for the title.
Indians junior libero Theresa Swertfager, daughter of Hen Hud coach Diane, was named the tournament MVP, while teammate Amanda Flayhan also took all-tournament team honors. John Jay coach Tom Rizzotti forwarded me the results of the tournament, which can be seen below.
