Patriots Runner-Up in Home Tourney!

October 22, 2020

By: Gracie Eisenmann, a freshman at Leigh High School

As usual, the first Saturday in October was a special day for the Clarkson-Leigh Patriot Volleyball team, as it marked their home Patriot tournament.   On Saturday October 3, the varsity squad racked up two more wins to their record, but sadly couldn’t pull through in the last game. 

            To start off the morning, the Patriots played Pender as their first opponent. The Patriots pulled through and won both sets, 25-19, and 27-25. 

            Chloe Hanel led in kills for this match with 7, and Kayden Schumacher dominated the serve game with 8 aces. 

            The Patriots kept their energy rolling into the next match up against Humphrey-Lindsay Holy Family.  They shut the Bulldogs down easily, winning 25-15 and 25-20.

            Senior Alissa Kasik led this match on defense with a total of 8 digs. Schumacher and Cassidy Hoffman defended the net with 3 blocks each.   

            “Both Pender and HLHF were good battles and definitely pushed us a little bit, but we were able to hold composure and control the things we knew we could control in order to pull out the wins!” said Head Coach Becky Schneider.

            The Patriots were off to the championship. They were matched up with Bishop Neumann. They knew it was going to be a tight game against a C1 school, but they were ready. Unfortunately, the Cavaliers were too tough to for the Patriots to handle.  Bishop Neumann was not scheduled to play in this tournament, but due to Covid-19 concerns, Wynot had to drop out. So Bishop Neuman was a fill-in team, meaning all the games they played were not sanctioned by NSAA, and the loss did not count on the Patriots’ record. 

            “Bishop Neumann was a tough loss,” Coach Schneider said, “but it was also a great match for us.  We feel we were both fairly evenly matched in both sets, but they just made fewer errors than we did.  We gave up three aces on serve receive and let them go on a run, and we just can’t let teams do that.  At that point, we became tense and couldn’t quite finish.  But in the end, playing teams of Neumann’s caliber will only make us better, which is definitely what we want at this point in the season.”

            Kennedy Settje, junior at Leigh, had this to say about the tournament:

            “We came into the tournament ready to take home the gold just like we did the previous week. Although it didn’t end exactly how we planned it too, we played hard and worked well as a team!”

            The Patriot record sits at 15-1 after this tournament.
