Beaver Falls volleyball team breaks losing streak

November 1, 2012 by  

The Titans, the female volleyball team at Westminster College in Beaver Falls, defeated the Geneva College Golden Tornadoes, putting an end to the team’s nine-match losing streak.

The October 30 match was the first time the Beaver County team had won against the Geneva College team since 2008. The Titans won 3-1, with scores of 15-25, 25-14, 25-23, and 25-23, respectively, in each set.

2008 was also the last year that the Titans won the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) championship. Tuesday’s match was the first round of this year’s PAC tournament. The team hopes to go on to win its fourth championship this year and, so far, it is off to a good start.

Beaver Falls’ Titans made excellent use of offense and defense during the match. Megan Romocean, a junior, led the team with nine kills. On the defense side, Tara Incerpi, a senior, had 21 digs. An all-round star player was junior Katie Palkovic, who had 13 digs, five kills, and a team-high of 43 assists during the match.

The first weekend in November brings the semi-finals to Crestview Hills, Kentucky, where the Titans will travel to face off against the top-ranked volleyball team from Thomas More. To bring some home team spirit to the away match, the Beaver Falls team might want to consider banner printing. The Titans’ fans could then hold the banner during the matches to cheer their team on.

The Titans face off in the semi-finals tomorrow evening, November 2. The championship match is scheduled for Saturday, November 3 at 4:00 pm.
