Hornets snap losing streak with 3-1 win over Newbury

Kirtland’s volleyball team got a much needed win on Saturday.

After opening the season with a 5-2 record, the Hornets had dropped four straight games before beating visiting Newbury, 3-1, on Saturday to get back to .500 with a 6-6 record.

“The kids played great,” said Kirtland coach Bob Schenosky. “It was a total team effort.”

Junior captain Elise Frazee believes the win will help the Hornets to regain their confidence for the stretch run heading into the post-season.

“This win felt so good because our whole team worked together to slow down, play our game, and fight for every point like it was our last,” she said. “I think I can speak on behalf of our entire team and say we truly earned our win today.”

Leading 2-1, Krista Robejsek dominated at the top of the net to prevent the Black Knights from forcing a fifth game. She finished the match with 15 kills.

“(t was) the great passing and setting from the rest of my team,” Robejsek said. “We all wanted the win and were willing to put in the effort in order to get there.”

Kirtland hosts Harvey on Tuesday.
