The win was big for the girls as it brought their overall record back to .500 on the year. For their last home game, seniors Kim Lubeski (Bishopville, MD), Sammy Figliolia (Wantagh, NY), Amanda Ostapow (East Setauket, NY), and Marilena Guadagnini (Huntington Beach, California) were all honored for their volleyball careers at Post.
Leading the team in kills on senior night ironically was freshman, Shayla Hixson (Honolulu Hawaii) who had 12 kills along with 8 digs. The seniors however, did not disappoint. Ostapow totaled 30 assists and four service aces on the match. Figliolia had seven kills and 11 digs while Lubeski recorded six digs. Guadagnini also added eight kills. These girls combined for 30 kills and 41 digs when the team total was 41 kills and 50 blocks.
The remaining kills went to Makamae Namahoe (4), Geony Fisher (3), Lisa Delfs (3) and Laura Garbarino (1). Fisher also recorded 9 digs.
Mercy started off with an early 4-1 lead against the Pioneers in the third set and almost set the game to a fourth set. But the Pioneers had a 7-0 rally and eventually won the match with a score of 25-12. This was the Pioneers fifth conference win and 19th win of the season.
