The 25-12, 25-22, 25-15 decision involved a close second set, but little else for the Bees to stress about as Jenna Garvey, with 18 assists, and Summer McClintic, with 14 assists, paced the back line, Brooke Clute adding nine digs.To lead B’ville’s front line, Rileigh Kimball put away 14 kills, adding five aces and six digs. Kyrah Wilbur and Sophia Kordas helped with seven kills apiece as, for Liverpool, Kayla Tarn, Haley Miles and Abby Rowell each got three kills, Lexi Carfi getting eight assists and Helen Nash recording six digs.Another tournament appearance followed for B’ville on Saturday and it won at Burnt Hills/Ballston Lake, defeating the host Spartans, a six-time state champion, in a tense best-of-three-set final 25-14, 20-25, 27-25. Back on Wednesday, Cicero-North Syracuse rolled past Corcoran 25-6, 25-16, 25-5 in its season opener, the Northstars amassing 31 aces, seven of them by Jennifer Carl to go with her eight assists.C-NS also had Brooke Segars get eight aces and three kills, while Cassidy Ormond had four aces and five assists. Aurora Lesinski produced a team-best five kills.Meanwhile, in boys volleyball, C-NS, again defending the Section III Division I title, put up an impressive four-set victory at Rush-Henrietta, including a 29-27 set that allowed the  Northstars to move ahead for good.Junior Brandon Millias picked up 31 assists and nine digs, with Trace LaRobardiere earning 13 digs. Up front, Dan Seliger led with 11 kills as John Hendry got nine kills and Carter Wisely had eight kills. Millias and Kevin Felasco had five kills apiece.As if that wasn’t enough, C-NS then won the Williamsville South Tournament on Sunday, claiming sets against six different opponents before handling Maryvale in the semifinals and sweeping North Tonawanda 25-20, 25-17 in the championship round.Baldwinsville’s boys team had quite a season opener last Tuesday night against Living Word Academy, rallying to go in front, only to fall in five sets to the Lions.After Living Word won the opening set 25-21, the Bees claimed the next two sets 25-16 and 25-17. Yet that work did not carry over as the Lions dominated the fourth set 25-14 and, in the last-set race to 15, won it 15-10.Aidan Priest had quite a match for B’ville, accumulating 13digs, six kills, four aces and two blocks.
