Girls Volleyball—The second-seeded Lady Knights suffered their third loss and shutout of the season after getting swept, 3-0 (25-8, 25-23, 25-10), by top-seeded RHAM (18-0) at Glastonbury High School in the final of the CCC tournament. Southington fell, 3-0, to RHAM during the regular season. The win was RHAM’s fourth conference title and third in four years. Although the Knights played slightly better than their first meeting with the Sachems, Saturday night’s match still came down to a battle over the net, which the Sachems won. In the first set, the Sachems caught the Knights off balance and found holes in their defense with a heavy artillery of spikes, forcing the Knights to commit an abundance of unforced errors through runs of 5-0 and 10-0. The Knights managed to settle down though and battled back, making things interesting in a much more balanced second set. With the score knotted at 22-22, the Sachems grabbed the next two points off net and serve receive errors. A Hannah Zelina block brought the Knights to within a point, until the Sachems took the set on a dig error. The Knights kept the third set close, trailing by four early on, until the Sachems ran away with the match after going on a 13-2 run. Stephanie Zera went 8-for-9 serving with a pair of aces and dished out 15 assists. Other team leaders from the match included the following: Sarah Myrick (5 kills), Brooke Cooney (4 blocks), Hannah Zelina (4 blocks), and Nolyn Allen (10 digs). The Knights earned the second seed and a first-round bye in the Class LL tournament and will host the winner of No. 18 Brien McMahon (12-8) at No. 15 Staples (12-7) in the second round on Thursday, Nov. 9. Match time is 6 p.m. All first-round matches are set to take place on Monday, Nov. 6.
