Girl’s Volleyball Rolls to Fifth Straight Win on Monday

The Pirates girl’s volleyball team rolled to a 2-0 win over Florence on Monday afternoon for their fifth straight victory.

“To come in today after having Sunday off and get another win under their belt, it feels good,” head coach Sara Skvir said.

Cinnaminson is now 5-2 on the young season, while Florence falls to 2-3 in their inaugural season.

“They are in our conference (West Jersey Volleyball League). We are hoping to build that conference,” Skvir said.

“It’s great to see new teams join. For a first-year team, they weren’t bad. They had some good servers. Hopefully, they continue to grow and compete with the bigger schools.”

The Pirates were riding a four-match win streak coming into Monday’s contest after taking down Pennsauken, Sterling, Notre Dame and West Windsor-Plainsboro North last week.

The Notre Dame and West Windsor-Plainsboro North matches were part of a crossover at West Windsor-Plainsboro North between teams from the North and South Divisions of the West Jersey Volleyball League.

“Saturday was definitely a good day for us,” Skvir said. “It got their spirits up and they know they can hang with any team.”

“They stayed focused and didn’t let up at all. We were down one game going back and forth and pulled out a win in three sets (2-1 West Windsor-Plainsboro North).”

Cinnaminson never trailed in the first set of Monday’s win over Florence, taking a 1-0 match lead with a 25-10 win.

In the second set, the Pirates raced out to an 11-3 lead and never looked back in a 25-13 victory to take the match 2-0.

“I told them to go out there and play their game today,” Skvir said. “It doesn’t matter what is on the other side of the court. We need to do our passing, our sets and offensive plays we work on it practice.”

The win today was the third out of five that ended in a 2-0 score in favor of the Pirates.

“Going back to Saturday, the way we played two different games against two different teams, shows how much they are growing as players,” Skvir said. “As long as we play our game and stay focused, we will be successful.”

Cinnaminson returns to the court on Tuesday, September 20 with a road match against Northern Burlington at 5pm.
