The Kings Park girls volleyball team is proving they are force to be reckoned with on the court as they claimed their first championship title of 2013 season on Wednesday.
Kings Park girls volleyball team clinched Suffolk's League V record on Wednesday beating Huntington 3-0, with match scores of 25-10, 25-10, 25-17, Newsday reports. It's their third consecutive league title. The key to Kings Park's success on the courts is a strong start, beginning with the opening serve. "When we have the serve at the beginning of the game, we can go on a run with it," said Joelle Goldstein, who led off in the server's box, told Newsday. "I love the pressure of having to serve. There's nothing better than getting an ace or hitting a serve that they can't receive. As long as I have control of the serve, I have control of the game."
The girls volleyball teams currently holds an 11-0 league record and 13-0 overall record with 1 match remaining against Islip, 9-2, on Oct. 29 at 5:45 p.m. The Kingsmen will celebrate it as senior night.
While Islip is ranked No. 2 in League V, Kings Park is eagerly looking forward to claiming the next step on the road to victory- an undefeated season. With good reason, the team hasn't dropped a match since Oct. 11, 2011.
The girls volleyball team set their pre-season goal of claiming their first New York State Championship in 2013. With the League V title in hand and one match out from an undefeated season, we's say the reigning Long Island championship team is well on its way.
