Schuyler finished with nine kills as Stefany Rocha was the team leader with four and the Warriors also had three team aces.

After the win York head coach Chris Ericson shared his thoughts on Thursday nights game and the upcoming subdistrict.

“I like how we played tonight. There wasn’t any drop off when we subbed in and the kids did a good job of executing despite all the shuffling in and out of players,” explained Ericson. “After Tuesday night I was ok with having a game like this tonight, because at practice yesterday I could see the girls were mentally worn out and tired.”

Ericson said the B-3 subdistrict will be tough, but having a home court advantage will be huge.

“Every team has an advantage of some kind in their home gym and with all the teams in this subdistrict being so familiar with each other, I think it can play in our favor,” Ericson said. “I also feel that all four teams will have a good chance at playing on Saturday in the district finals so we may just be jockeying for position.”
