The proverbial gray cloud continued to hang over the York College Women’s Volleyball team after a close loss yesterday to conference rivals City College of New York (CCNY), which ended with violations.
Trailing 11-10 to City College in the deciding fifth set, the Cardinals were going to serve when they were called for an illegal substitution, which was worth a point. The score eventually became 14-12, and a service error cost York the match.
The Cardinals were outlasted by CCNY (25-15, 18-25, 20-25, 25-20, 15-12), dropping the season record to 1-7, and 1-3 in the CUNY Athletic Conference.
As tough as the loss was, York showed some fight throughout the game. The Cardinals took an early 2-1 set advantage by eating up the second and third sets after losing the first.
York was led by Carlean McCrimmon, who had 18 kills with three aces, eight digs and five blocks. Libero Allison Li had 12 digs to steer the defense and Stayce Kay Muirhead finished with 12 kills. Setter Evelyn Florentino also finished with 35 assists.
The Cardinals will host the College of St. Elizabeth in their next match on Tuesday night.
