Girls Varsity Volleyball, coach Kristin Hughey
The girls varsity volleyball team defeated Holland on the road last week. Devin Rowe was on fire in the front row with four slamming’ kills during the match. Jessica Roggie’s serves were unstoppable in game two. Middle blockers Allie Emmick and Gabby Nichols were hard for Holland to get through. They both towered over their opponent. Meadow Wittman ran a 5-1 and confidently ran her team’s offensive leading them to another win.
Girls Varsity Swimming, coach Karen Reynolds, assistant coach Christy Komenda
Members of the 2016 Varsity Girls swim team attended Cheektowaga High School Saturday morning for an early swim meet versus the other small ECIC schools. This was an exciting meet for our girls because they were able to compete with girls similar in ability and their outcomes are highlighted the entire morning. I am very proud to say that SGI was very well represented with not only swimmers, but also finishes. Shannon O’Hara started the meet off taking 1st place overall in diving. The 200 Medley Relay of Yetter, Langa, Emley, and Boyles took a 2nd place overall. Patterson took a 1st overall in the 200 IM, and Milbrand took a 5th, Bergner took a 3rd in 100 free. The 500 was swept by Emley (1st), Patterson (2nd) and Jurkowski (5th). The 50 free was represented with Shannon O’Hara taking 2nd place and Olivia Langa taking 3rd. The 200 free relay of Langa, Bergner, O’Hara, and Yetter took 2nd. The 100 back we took a 1st with an ECIC time, Madisyn Emley, and Samantha Yetter took 3rd overall. The meet ended with Bergner, Emley, O’Hara, and Patterson taking a 1st in the 400 free realy and another 400 relay of Boyles, Dubel, Jurkowski, and Wissing took 3rd place. These girls have a lot to be proud of and I am looking forward to our returners to come back next year ready to rock it out! Congratulations ladies on a season well done!
Girls JV Volleyball, coach Robert Gainey
The JV girls volleyball suffered their second loss on the year Monday night when they hosted the Eden Raiders. The girls took control of game one behind the excellent play from Sara And Emily Ehlers. Both girls did a terrific job covering blocks and making great decisions with the ball. The team took the first game 25-16. Game two was a different story as the girls committed too many mistakes to help give the Raiders the game two win. The team couldn’t muster up enough good plays in the third game, as the team fell 25-16. Despite the outcome, the girls played a phenomenal match.
The JV girls are currently 12-2 overall and will look to finish the season strong over the next week as they take on the East Aurora Blue Devils, Lackawanna Steelers, and Pioneer Panthers.
Girls Modified Soccer, coach Alicia Dziak
On Friday, Oct. 14, the modified girls soccer team faced off against Holland, and came away with a 3-2 win. The first goal was scored by Dru Robinson on a penalty shot. Holland came back with two quick goals, taking the lead. SGI answered with a second goal by Jackie Roggie, assisted by Shelby Stisser, followed by a third quarter breakaway goal by Caitlyn Hazen. Serenity Heim made her debut in goal and shut out her time in net during the second half.
On Tuesday, Oct. 18, the girls fell to East Aurora, 3-0. All three goals were scored in the first half. Despite the loss, strong play was put in by the girls, especially seventh graders Brooke Walker, Arial Link and Maddie Schwanekamp.
The girls finish up their season next week with three games versus Eden (away), Pioneer (home) and Holland (home). Come cheer them on!
