Clifton Park — Shenendehowa Girls’ Volleyball hosted their second Annual Columbus Day Conquest
tournament on Sat., Oct. 9. The Plainsmen were unable defend their crown after facing some
stiff downstate competition during pool play, but the squad from Ballston Spa kept the tournament title
in Section II with a dramatic three set win over Harrison with scores of 25-23, 17-25, 28-26.

In pool play action, Pool A saw the Harrison squad and defending Section IX champions, Pine Bush,
finish in a tie for first place with 7-1 records. Shen dropped two games apiece to those worthy
opponents to finish their day at 4-4. In Pool B, Queensbury and Ballston Spa dominated the
competition with 6-2 records to advance to the semifinal round. In the playoffs, Harrison dispatched
Queensbury in two straight sets while Ballston Spa defeated Pine Bush in a see-saw, three game match.

The championship match was a slug-fest that saw Spa win a close set one only to drop set two by a
lopsided margin. Set three was a beauty, each side fighting for every point as if it were match point.
Led by tournament MVP Amber Goss, Spa was able to seal the victory in “overtime” by a 28-26 score.

In JV action, the Shenendehowa team, led by tournament MVP Brooke Lane, captured the title
