continued Then, in the span of an hour, it was over, B’ville sharp and relentless as it carved up the Hornets in yet another sweep, winning the opening set 25-7, the second set 25-12 and the third set 25-8.
Lexi Lagoy led the Bees’ attack with 10 kills, adding five digs. Rachel Aiello and Madison Whitney each had seven kills, with Aiello adding two aces and two digs, while Melissa Voyer picked up five kills and Amanda May had three kills.
Meghann Smith fed all of them with 35 assists, an average of more than 12 assists per set, with Caryn Salce picking up a team-best four aces, plus four digs.
So in the opening act of Wednesday night’s AA finals twin bill at Cicero-Nort Syracuse (which starts at 6 p.m.), B’ville’s girls will face no. 3 seed West Genesee, who avenged two regular-season defeats to Liverpool by knocking off the no. 2 seed Warriors in the other semifinal match.
A win there puts the Bees into the regional final against the Section II champions next weekend, while the B’ville boys, should it topple Oswego, would also face the Section II survivor on Friday, needing two regional wins to reach the state finals Nov. 15 at Glens Falls Civic Center.
