Long Beach wins volleyball title
(Page 2 of 2)
J. Heck/Herald
Long Beach knocked off South Side in five sets to win the Nassau Class A volleyball championship.

Junior Maya Shabir (15 kills) and senior Kayla Principato (14) led the offense for South Side, which trailed 24-21 and 25-24 in the fourth set before rallying. “We had to dig down really deep and take it one point at a time,” Scalice said. With Heidenfelder serving, Principato cut the deficit to 24-22 with one of her patented left-handed smashes. Sophomore Alexandra Kosakoff served two points to tie it, but a Steiner kill regained the lead for Long Beach. A huge dig by junior libero Meghan Johnke (no errors on 28 serve receives, 10 digs) kept the Lady Cyclones’ season alive, and they eventually deadlocked the match on junior Ashley DeTullio’s serve.

“We were so close we could taste it,” Rehnback said. “At the same time we knew South Side wasn’t going to quit. The way they came back after that first set…it just wasn’t going to be easy.”

Congratulations! Your hard work and dedication has paid off. And congratulations to your coaches' hard work and dedication despite being treated as second-class citizens by the Board of Education. For more than two years they have continued to excel even in the face of stalled contract negotiations and the knowledge that the Board has rewarded the Superintendent and his assistants with 2% raises, principals and directors with 2.5-2.75% raises and even gave their lawyers a 2.5% raise. And they are about to send a group of administrators on an all-expense paid trip to New Orleans.
