  • Consistency, that’s what Gazelles Volleyball head coach Chelsea Law asked from her team going into the seasons first ESD contest versus the visiting Harrisburg Tigers last night at the Summit Activities Center. The Gazelles delivered, despite the five set loss. After a disappointing first set in favor of Harrisburg 25-13, the Gazelles started to roll, winning sets two and three by 29-14 and 25-19 thanks to some excellent performances on the backline, as well as Jordynn Salvatori who had 14 kills, and Chloe McDermott, who had a team leading 17 kills on the night. The Gazelles would drop the fourth set 27-25, setting up a tension filled fifth set. After exchanging some solid defensive efforts, Harrisburg would come out on top winning the fifth set 16-14. While upset with the loss, Coach Law expects her team to be in these situations plenty more in the future.
