Generals Volleyball Defeats Vikings
Last Wednesday the Herkimer Generals Volleyball team traveled to Hudson Valley to take on the Vikings. The first game of the match was a back and forth battle, but the Generals prevailed winning it 25-23. The Vikings struck back taking one away from us in the second game. We were defeated 19-25. However our ladies held their composure and won the third game 25-18. Herkimer led Hudson Valley two games to one and needed just one more to finish as the victors. The Vikings didn’t make it easy as the final game of the match had to be played to an extra point. But Herkimer came away with the win defeating Hudson Valley in the final game 26-24.
Herkimer’s #12 freshman middle hitter Alex Jones (Canastota, NY) was one key player in the General’s victory. Jones left the night with 21 kills, 25 digs, and 5 blocks. Another key player Wednesday night was fellow freshman middle hitter #9 Marica Bellico (Naples, Italy). Bellico left that evening with 19 kills, 27 digs, and 6 blocks.
The Herkimer Generals will host the Fulton Montgomery Raiders Wednesday (10/12) at 6 p.m. in the Varsity Gym.
