Press release:

The Genesee Community College volleyball team swept visiting Niagara County Community College 3-0 Oct. 10 by scores of 25-22, 25-23 and 25-18, respectively.

As has been the case most of this season, Genesee appeared to get more dominant once the match got underway, as was the case against the Thunderwolves.

In the first set trailing 20-19, the Cougars recorded six of the last eight points to take the set 25-22, including the final four points behind the service points of Tommi Rutherford.

The second set almost provided an identical scenario that had the Cougars trailing by that same 20-19 score before the team rattled off six of the last nine points for the 25-23 win. Again it was Rutherford capturing four of the team's last five points with her serve.

In the third set, Genesee got its second double-digit lead at 15-5 before cruising to a 25-18 win. Audriana Reeves had the hot serving hand in helping the Cougars establish an early 9-1 lead.

Reeves led all Cougars in aces with four, while Lyndsey Rowland had five blocks on the day. Sydney DeVay registered a team-high 13 digs and Sha-Ony Obispa had seven kills that included one to end the second match and prevent it from going to extra points.

Head coach Tricia Ziebarth used the match to get some more experience for some of her players and was pleased by what see saw, "We used today to put a couple of our freshmen in at different positions and they rose to the occasion.

The Cougars continue their home stand by hosting Finger Lakes Community College Oct. 12 at 6 p.m.

Genesee recorded 16 in the first and 18 in its last sets against the Kats.

Genesee then went against the undefeated Jayhawks and Jamestown kept their perfect record intact with three set wins the Cougars coming closest in the first set with 21 points. Jamestown moved to 11-0 with the win and 33-0 in set wins for the season. The Cougars recorded 16 and 15 points, respectively in the final two sets.

In the Cougars' final match of the day, the Cougars finally had an opportunity to play a team not mentioned in the national polls and made the best of it by sweeping Niagara County Community College 3-0.

The Thunderwolves came closest to beating the Cougars in the first set and with the score tied at 23, Sha-Ony Obispa broke the stalemate with a key kill and Lyndsey Rowland sealed the win with a block for set point. The Cougars cruised after that with wins of 25-11 and 25-16 in the final two sets against Niagara.
