Jefferson Hosts the 2019 Volleyball Invitational

Freshman Brooke Everson

The Lady Cannoneers hosted the annual Invite Tournament on September 7, 2019 and fell short in the championship match to SUNY Broome in 3 sets.  In pool play Jefferson took care of each of their opponents in 2 sets.  They defeated Mohawk Valley Community College first 25-17 & 25-15, then beat Broome 27-25 & 25-18, and finally took care of Herkimer College 25-8 & 25-23.  This put Jefferson first in their pool which means they would be playing Finger Lakes Community College in the semi-finals.  Jefferson lost the first set 22-15, won the second set 25-13, and then came back in the third set to win in extra points 16-14.  Meanwhile, Broome defeated Monroe in 2 straight sets so Jefferson would face SUNY Broome again in the finals.  Jefferson lost the first set 24-26, won the second set 25-23, but dug much of a hole in the third set and lost 9-15.  This was the first loss for the Lady Cannoneers, putting the team at 8-1 overall currently.  Allison Burrows had a very solid day finishing with 46 service points, 40 kills, and 50 digs respectively.  Marjorie Vazquez also had a very solid day compiling 7 blocks, 40 digs, 42 kills, and 20 service points.  Brooke Everson and Grace Gehrke each tacked on 13 kills, Alyssa Evans added 7 kills while Aliza Deasy ended with 5 kills.  Jenna Wilson finished with 39 digs, Nicole O'Connor chipped in 23 digs, and Abigail Sullivan added 5 digs. Savanna Baker tacked on 7 service points and Kelsey Finster tallied 103 assists on the day.  Jefferson will look for another conference win against Onondaga Community College on Wednesday at home at 6:00, please come out and support the girls!
