Members of the KAOS team showed up in force for their volleyball playoff games Nov. 4.
With all 10 players at the west court in Marshall Wellness Center, they could substitute freely. By contrast Netropy had five players.
KAOS beat Netropy 25-16, 25-13 and the Energizers 25-22, 25-21 to earn a bye in the first round of the Division A tournament.
“I think they did great,” KAOS captain Dennis Gallagher said. “We had really good position play and coordination between the players. And really some good execution.”
Billy Carson had 11 kills, three aces and three digs for KAOS (2-0). Tim Duquette had eight kills, three aces and three digs. Jim Hartmann made seven kills, four aces and two digs. Patrick Sumera contributed five kills and two aces. Sarah Champey made five digs and Stacy Mitchell had two.
“Just need another player,” Netropy co-captain Kyle Cossey said.
“We just had too many bad hits,” Energizers captain Harold Gerrish said. “Way too many. Hopefully we’re going to do better next match.”
