Hudson Valley’s volleyball team started their season with two away games.
The first game kicked off at noon as the girls played against New York’s largest community college, Suffix. They ended up losing the game with the final score of 20-15, 17-25 and 12-25.
The day turned around though, as the team headed to the nearby Hostos Community College later at 5 PM. They played to earn themselves their first victory with final scores of 25-19, 11-25, 17-25, 25-23 and 15-9.
The victory was ensured by the hard work of all the team members, however with 32 assists, 9 kills, 8 digs and 3 aces, freshman setter Danielle Pardo was a major player.
Her teammates sophomore right side and outside hitter Emily Schumaker and sophomore setter Megan Persons also played ruthlessly. Schumaker closed the day with 15 digs and 6 kills and 6 aces and Persons scored similarly with 15 assists, 9 kills and 8 digs.
The 1:1 team record leaves fans wondering how the rest of the season will go.
