The third set was close also, but we were able to keep our composure to get the win”, concluded Coach Nuxoll.  Emalee Craven had a good night, leading the team with nine kills, 4 blocks and 2 aces.  “It is a good feeling to see the team working together well at the end of the season.”

The Charlestown JV team defeated Borden in a best of three, 25-13, 25-10; and improved their record to 12-4 on the season.  “Our JV team is playing strong. They are on an eight match winning streak. Hannah Vincent had a good night serving and Kaia Reid had a good night offensively”, commented Coach Nuxoll.
