On a day in which Harrison was raising money to fight a form of cancer, the host Huskies raised their game and earned a 25-12, 25-17, 21-25, 25-16 win over Fox Lane Tuesday.
“We are a young team,” Harrison coach Candy Light said. “They are not focused on the end and sectionals. They are focused on getting better each game. We were 8-8 going in. This win put us over the .500 mark. It was a good feeling because they beat us at their house on their homecoming. It was great to have them come to us and beat them on our senior night.”
Fox Lane swept Harrison on Oct. 2.
Miho Iwasa had six aces, four digs, three kills and 26 assists for the Huskies. Dominique Loguidice added seven kills, three aces and 19 digs.
The game was Harrison’s “Dig Lavender” event. It was an idea that came from former Harrison player Jessica Segal, who now plays for Bentley.
“She sent me the flier and her team did a Dig Lavender event,” Light said. “Her coach, Sandy Hoffman, is fighting some cancer and it was dear to their team. She reached out to us and asked us to join in the fight. We thought it would make our senior day even bigger. We had a bake sale after school. … It was kind of a giving-and-caring day.”
Sara White had five kills and four digs for the Foxes (8-8).
Best of the rest: Ardsley’s Nicolina Chenard had 13 kills and 11 digs in a 25-10, 25-15, 25-11 win over Clarkstown North that completed an undefeated regular season. … Tappan Zee’s Rachel Maggiore had four kills, 29 assists and six digs in a 25-22, 26-28, 25-18, 25-20 win over Nyack. … Blind Brook’s Lindsey Kim had 23 kills and 16 digs in a 25-21, 25-20, 26-28, 25-23 win over Greeley that clinched sole possession of the League III-C championship. … In boys volleyball, Clarkstown South’s Jack Kelly had 19 kills, 12 digs and 13 blocks in a 26-24, 18-25, 25-17, 25-22 win over Clarkstown North.
REMINDER: The official Section 1 tournament seeds will be released sometime around 11 a.m. or noon on Wednesday, so make sure you’re checking the blog and Twitter to find out where your team lands. I made some calculations of my own to give you an idea of what some of the classes may look like. I will post my tournament predictions once I’m back in the office.
LIVE CHAT: Also, please don’t forget about the live LoHud chat, which will be held right here on the blog at 7:30 p.m. This is the perfect time to ask away any questions you may have, although I figure most will be about the section tournament. Still, the platform is pretty unlimited. All you need to do is show up on the blog, and the rest is kind of self-explanatory. (Yes, you can ask anonymously.)
No perfect record tonight, or this year, but I’m happy with the overall outcome of the predictions throughout the season. Check out the final night’s results below:
