Scrappy Bearcats put end to Trojans season
Homer Central has battled all season long and the Trojans were in the fight of their life Tuesday to open Section 3 Class B volleyball tournament play.
With a solid defensive effort and some timely dump shots, scrappy third-seed Solvay ended the title hopes of the second-seeded Trojans in four sets in front of a packed house at Homer High School Tuesday.
The Bearcats emerged with a 25-13, 20-25, 25-22, 25-21 win to advance to the Class B championship match Thursday at Jamesville-DeWitt High School. Solvay will face top-seed Marcellus in the 7 p.m. match. The Mustangs downed fourth-seed Phoenix 23-25, 25-20, 25-23, 25-18 in the other semifinal match.
“We pride ourselves on good defense,” Solvay coach Eric Wojtalewski said. “I think we are lucky this year to have some really good hitters and our setters do a fantastic job. We play good defense and we put pressure on our opponents with our offense.
