The Windsor volleyball team saw its season come to an end on Tuesday night, falling 3-0 to Dobbs Ferry in a New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class C regional semifinal at SUNY Oneonta.
The Black Knights (12-4) lost by scores of 25-23, 25-16, 25-18. Dobbs Ferry (21-2) is a Section 1 school.
“We didn’t play very well,” Windsor coach Scott Symons said in a telephone interview. “I did not have the kids well prepared to play.”
Senior middle hitter Chase Moran led Windsor with a team-high 11 kills and 12 digs and Chelsea Cappello finished with 20 assists. Courtney Bellmore and Emma Studer had three aces apiece.
“They (Dobbs Ferry) hit very well and we did not block very well, and that’s on me as a coach.” Symons said. “They were a very good team, but we didn’t play how we were capable of tonight.”
The Black Knights held a lead in the first game before ultimately falling 25-23. They found themselves trailing 8-2 in the second game and 7-2 in the third and were unable to claw their way back.
“I think if we could have won that first game, it could have given us some confidence,” Symons said.
Despite the defeat, Symons was optimistic and happy for a team that this year won its first Section 4 Class C championship in five seasons.
“Even with the loss we had a great season,” he said.
