YORK, PA-Concluding a successful evening for Spartan athletics, the York College volleyball team dispatched visiting Lebanon Valley, 3-0. Defeating the Flying Dutchmen 30-23, 30-21, and 30-25, the green and white improves to 2-1 on the young season with LVC falling to 3-2.
York took control early on in the first game, producing an eight-point run that put them ahead 15-8. The spark allowed the green and white to take 13 of 16 points during the middle of the stanza. Lindsay Schorner (Spring Grove, Pa. / Spring Grove) tallied kill after kill as she led the Spartans to the first game victory.
After Lebanon Valley jumped out to a quick 10-5 lead in the second game, the Spartans regained their composure. Rallying back, York collected eight of the next nine points capturing a 13-12 lead that they would not relinquish.
The third frame proved a bit tougher for the Spartans. Following a 5-0 start that looked like York would blow out the game, Lebanon Valley retaliated with a 5-0 run of their own. Throughout the rest of the match, York took small leads but was never able to completely shake the pesky Flying Dutchmen. A series of long rallies late in the match fell in York’s favor securing the victory for the home squad.
Schorner produced the best match of her young Spartan career, amassing 15 kills on 28 attempts for an impressive .464 hitting percentage. The sophomore outside hitter also contributed eight digs and two service aces.

Providing her usual compliment of assists, Katie Hertz (Glenville, Pa. / Delone Catholic) registered 32 helpers to go along with three kills and four digs.
