Spartan Best Western Westgate Innvitational Kicks-Off Friday

YORK, PA - The York College volleyball team is set to host the third annual Spartan Best Western Westgate Invitational, which kicks off Friday, September 19. The two-day tournament begins at 3:00 pm Friday and will culminate with the championship game on Saturday afternoon as eight institutions will vie for the title. The Spartans will be joined by Albright (2-6), Arcadia (4-3), DeSales (7-5), Eastern (7-0), Lebanon Valley (10-1), Montclair State (6-3), and Rowan (4-5).

Last season, the Spartans ran the table en route to the Invitational title. York only dropped two games the entire tournament going 15-2 against their five opponents.

To begin 2008, the green and white have posted a 6-7 mark including wins in two of their last three matches. Junior outside hitter Casi Brough (Hanover, Pa./Spring Grove) leads the Spartans with 107 kills as she has started each of York’s 13 matches. Junior Jaclyn Davis (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill East) has 85 kills while junior libero Amanda Clemens (Lebanon, Pa./Cedar Crest) has posted a team-high 280 digs. The Spartans will look to ride the strong play of this trio of juniors as they attempt to defend their title.
