ALFRED, N.Y. (Oct. 23) - The Erie Community College volleyball team suffered a five-set loss to Jamestown Community College Saturday in the first round of the Western New York Athletic Conference tournament. The Kats (16-17) fell 18-25, 25-21, 25-22, 13-25, 11-15.
Christina Boxler (Attica, N.Y./Attica H.S.) led the Kats with 13 kills while freshman setter Julia Gangloff (Lancaster, N.Y./Lancaster H.S.) recorded 36 assists and 20 digs.
"Jamestown has been one of the hottest teams in the conference and we knew we'd have to bring our A game. We did that today. We played harder today than we have all year and even though we lost, I've never been happier with our play and, more important, our attitude," ECC head coach Craig Starzynski said.
ECC awaits word on its next opponent in the upcoming NJCAA Region III Tournament.
