Girls Volleyball @ Atmosphere Charter School
The Lady Falcons started their anticipated season opener with a double header Monday evening in Yonkers.
The second game the Falcons squared off against Atmosphere Charter School. The first set, Atmosphere came out ready and aggressive. This game had a playoff type atmosphere (no pun intended). Atmosphere beat us in a close set by a score of OWN 21- Atmosphere 18. The second set, the Falcons matched Atmosphere's energy and dominated the set with great team play led by Nia Novotny, Tenzin Youdon and Camila Ortiz. The Falcons won the set by a score OWN 21- Atmosphere 15. This match went to a third and final set. In the final set our veterans played together for the first time. They came out and dominated with graceful passing and fierce serving. Sunita Lama started the set off with 7 straight aces which gave us a comfortable sustainable cushion that led to a victorious set. Final score OWN 17- Atmosphere 6.
Notable mentions: Senior Camila Ortiz, 7th graders Yangchen Sherpa Lama, Kaylie Blake and 6th graders Gabriela Michelin and Nefeli Kyritsis were all solid for their first matches of their volleyball careers.
