WHS VOLLEYBALL Wildcats Win 5 InARow Get Back To 500

first_imgGoing into this match, we were warned that Watertown had a very scrappy defense, but not a very potent offense. We stressed to the girls how important it was for them to keep the ball in play against a scrappy team. Keep our errors to a minimum and look for our opportunities to score.The Wildcats came out strong in the first set. Watertown ran very few attacks, relying instead on just keeping the ball in play with free balls trying to score on 2nd ball over. Wilmington stayed patient and kept the ball in play, running their own attacks and scoring when they could. Once again, after a dominant first set, there was some let-down in the second set. To their credit Watertown did a much better job of running an offense and managed to score more often, but Wilmington held tough and gutted out a narrow victory. We made a small change to the lineup in the third set to let Raegan Sweeney play all the way around again, and have her use her powerful swings to generate some energy. She did a great job, sparking the team to a dominant third set victory.Serving was a strength again this set with 96% serving, 10 aces and only 3 errors. Six of our nine active players served 100%! Our lowest serving percentage was 75%. It was great to see the girls putting our instructions into practice and not giving points away.Our game plan in this match was to attack Watertown out of the middle. Both Gianna Brunetto and Maeve Cadogan rose to the challenge. Gianna continues to thrive in the middle with 7 kills and only one error. Maeve contributed another 6 kills and only one error. Gabby Bond had 7 kills from the outside.Coming UpThe match against Watertown marked the mid-point in our 2018 season. Wilmington now stands at 3-5 in the Middlesex League and 5-5 overall.

Coming off a few recent victories the girls seemed ready to turn it on against Stoneham. I continued to stress the need to play smart. Serve in! Hit in!Apparently Brittany Cimaglia took my instructions to heart. After we got our first point on a great play from serve receive, Britt went on a run of 14 straight serves to stake us to a 15-0 lead. Wilmington never looked back in that set, allowing Stoneham only six more points in that set. As is often the case after a blow-out victory, there was a let-down in intensity and focus on our part, leading to a 4-8 deficit early on. But they were able to pull it together, tie it up and extend out to a 22-10 lead, before closing out the second set 25-14. The third set was closer, but Wilmington held the lead from start to finish.This was the Wildcats best serving performance of the season, serving 93% with 17 aces and only 5 errors! As mentioned earlier, Britt Cimaglia was outstanding, serving 97% with 10 aces and only 1 error on 33 service attempts. Anna Rideout and Khrystyna Fedynyak contributed perfect serving outings as well.We saw great improvement in our offense during this match as well, with a total of 22 kills and only 12 errors during the match. Our new middle hitter, Gianna Brunetto had a great night with 8 kills and only one error. Gabby Bond also contributed 8 kills with only one error. Maeve Cadogan had 5 kills with only one error.We were very pleased with the way that the team played their game during this match, no matter whether Stoneham was running an offense at them or just dumping free balls at them. They maintained their composure and got their jobs done.Watertown Wilmington325232525center_img Newburyport continues to improve, and is proving to be a competitive adversary. We have been trying to stress to the team how important it is to play smart: serve aggressive, but serve smart; hit aggressively, but hit in.. Don’t just try to overpower our opponents, but keep them out of system to get more opportunities to run an offense. Hit the ball over the net and find the court. We have a few really tough servers who were able to do exactly what we were looking for.In the first set, we got out to a lead and were able to maintain it all the way to the end. The second set started out the same, but Newburyport was able to stay close and finally close out a tight set, 25-23. In the third set, the team got out to an early lead again. Newburyport came close, but this time, Wilmington was able to hold on for the win. In the fourth set, Wilmington came out strong opened a wider lead and was able to close out the match.Overall we served 88% with 25 aces and only 11 errors. Maeve Cadogan led the team with 100% serving and three aces. Britt Cimaglia and Gabby Bond once again were strong servers for us with 96% serving and 8 aces and 5 aces respectively with only a single error each.We were not as pleased with our offense, which got 20 kills in the match, but also made 19 attack errors. Again, we need to play smarter in order to continue to be successful. Gabby Bond led the team with 6 kills, and Raegan Sweeney contributed 5 kills.Injuries are bound to happen during the course of a season, and we lost one of our Middle Hitters during the first set of this match. We tried a couple of different players at middle, and finally decided on playing Gianna Brunetto at middle. This decision worked out well in the Newburyport match and the remaining matches this week.Stoneham Wilmington3252525 Stoneham071419 WILMINGTON, MA — Below is the latest weekly recap from WHS Volleyball Coach Bruce Shainwald.Newburyportlast_img read more

United Way Encourages DC to Do More

United Way Encourages DC to Do More

first_imgDo More 24 campaign volunteers (Photo by Hyon Smith Photography)While Washington, D.C. and its surrounding counties have been identified as some of the most affluent areas in the nation, disproportionate access to resources still hinders many residents.“There is a delicate balance with the pride of who we are as a region,” Rosie Allen-Herring, president and CEO of United Way of the National Capital Area told the AFRO on June 5. “It comes with the responsibility of taking care of those who are a little less fortunate.”In the spirit of creating a continuum of giving back, in 2013, the United Way NCA created a 24-hour crowdfunding campaign to support the work of local non-profits. Utilizing an online platform, individuals could choose to donate to their favorite participating nonprofits or search for a nonprofit by cause or location.“Girls on the Run DC raised $4,297 from DO More 24,” said Kristen Komlosy, executive director of that organization, which promotes joyful, healthy, and confident fun to a diverse group of girls, more than half of whom are African American.Do More 24 campaign volunteers (Photo by Hyon Smith Photography)“Doing so, allowed us to provide program scholarships to 23 girls who would not have been otherwise able to participate in Girls on the Run,” Komlosy said of her participation in the 2014 giving marathon.On June 4, 612 nonprofits joined in the annual campaign, up from 564 in 2014. Throughout the day, social media pages blasted causes and reasons to contribute.“Give the gift of a soccer uniform & make a kid feel… like a CHAMP!!” tweeted DC Scores, an organization combining poetry, soccer, and service-learning to 1,500 low-income DC youth. Later, the organization’s Twitter page revealed a total $8,568 in donations, translating to 357 uniforms.“Give literature and a lifeline to young men in prison,” tweeted Free Minds Book Club and Writing Workshop, a non-profit that works with District youth who are incarcerated as adults. Free Minds closed the daylong event with $9,222.The top earners included Year Up – National Capital Region, Little Lights Urban Ministries, So Others Might Eat and REBOOT Combat Recovery, all of whom received at least $30,000. In total, over $1.4 million in online donations, cash prizes, bonus funds, and sponsor support was collected among participating organizations.“This is our third year and I think this was probably our most transformative year in terms of the focus being not just on donations, but getting people connected with nonprofits to be able to potentially volunteer,” said Allen-Herring, who spent a portion of the day at Tyson’s Corner Mall filling shoeboxes with toiletries that were then delivered to nonprofits who serve the basic needs of individuals.“One of the things that really got me excited was to see a group of volunteers who had disabilities – or different abilities – come in and volunteer for someone else,” she said. “It really just brought home the message that we could all do something. Everybody doesn’t have to be an expert in something, everyone doesn’t have to be rich, everyone doesn’t have to have a specific set of skills but everyone has something that they can do.”To learn more about the campaign and get involved in next year’s festivities, visit www.domore24.org.last_img read more
