The girl’s volleyball team ended the 2015 regular season on a good note, with two consecutive victories, including a 2-0 win over Burlington City (1-17) on Thursday.

The Pirates won the first set 25-8 and the second set 25-15 to take the match. The Pirates did not trail in the match until early in the second set, at 6-3, but reeled off seven straight points to take a 10-7 lead. From that point on, the Pirates never looked back.

The two wins come just days before the #20 Pirates will begin the playoffs in the Group 2 Tournament. Their first round game is scheduled for Tuesday, November 3 at 4:30pm against #13 Rumson-Fair Haven on the road.

Cinnaminson’s final two wins of the regular season, the other against Winslow, upped their record to 19-11 and came after a tough loss to Camden Catholic on Monday 2-1.

“We usually talk about how we played in the first game and use that as a confidence booster to get us pumped up,” Kelly Sigmund said. “We can beat any team if we put our minds to it. We won the first game of both matches (Camden Catholic). We use that game and the Sterling game to keep us pumped up. It just reminds us that we can play really good.”

With the playoffs looming, head coach Sara Skvir said it was good for her girl’s volleyball team to get some work in this week.

“I think we’re prepared for what’s to come. These two games didn’t really help with that, but I think they helped with ball placement. When we have a free ball, we have to put it to deep corners. I think that’s good going into Tuesday.”

The Pirates have mentioned multiple times this season that they need to stay in the game mentally and Skvir hit on that again Thursday afternoon.

“We have to play our game. We’ve still gotta serve hard. We’ve still gotta hit spots. Keep playing our game and stay in the game mentally because it’s going to help us for Tuesday.”

Sigmund hit on the mental aspect of the game as well.

“I think it’s really just mental. We’re usually on one game and come back the next game. I think it’s all mental and if we put it all together, we will win matches.”

Girl’s volleyball takes the court for the first round of the Group 2 playoffs on Tuesday, November 3 at 4:30pm when they travel to Rumson-Fair Haven.
