Skaneateles reaches Class B state volleyball final

Lakers drop title match in straight sets to John Glenn

What Skaneateles encountered on Sunday morning was a far different Glenn squad than on Saturday. This was the Knights squad who had gone through the unique pressure of a state championship match before and knew how to deal with it, something that would show in this match.

Glenn took charge from the first set onward. The Knights took a 17-7 lead in the first set and, after Skaneateles got five straight sets, closed on an 8-1 run to prevail 25-13 and move in front.

In the second set, Julianna Augustine's power shots kept the Lakers within reach, 11-9, but again Glenn took over, closing with a 14-4 spurt that created another 25-13 decision.

Briefly in the third set, the Lakers sneaked out in front 5-4, but the Knights quickly recovered and pulled away to close out the match by a 25-15 margin.

Augustine, in defeat, registered 16 digs to go with her team-best seven kills and five blocks on her way to an All-Tournament selection, while Sidney Lawson picked up 14 assists and 14 digs. Mallorie Olin added five blocks.

Glenn's Jacklyn Malusa, ignoring a knee injury suffered in round-robin play, still led her side with 19 kills. Her teammate, Sam Czechzotka, managed 13 kills and 10 digs, with Stephanie Viteritti recording 24 assists and 11 digs.
