Gina Pursati smashes a spike across the net

By John Addyman

     LYONS (Oct 1 10) – Ryenn Smith owned the zone near the net and Gina Pursati was firing bullets from the service line Friday night as the Lyons volleyball team took no prisoners in a 3-0 triumph over a game but outgunned North Rose-Wolcott squad.

     Pursati took over the service in the first game with Lyons holding a 16-12 lead. When she was done, after two aces and three Ryenn Smith kills, the score was 25-12.

     Coach Matt Barr mentioned before the match began that the Cougars had a pretty good service regimen themselves and could go on a hot streak, making the evening interesting.

     His kids never gave them that chance.

     Lyons put away NR-W 25-15 in the second game, and loosened up a little in the third, 25-17. Smith, just a sophomore, ended the night with 15 kills. “She is very tough, offensively,” said Barr.

     Lexi Buckley swept the floor for seven digs and Anne Contario had 10 assists for Lyons.

   Pursati, a stickout three-sport athlete, looked relaxed on the service line but kept smashing darts just across the top of the net.

     “She served very well tonight,” said Barr. “It’s good when she gets on a roll. When she serves tough we get a lot of free balls back, which makes for good swings for our hitters.”

     He said the team has a big week coming up with Bloomfield visiting on Monday, then away games at Sodus on Wednesday and Marion on Friday. “It was good to get a win on Homecoming tonight. Every game is a fight. If we play well, we’ll be tough to beat, but we have to be more consistent.”

     The win moved the Lyons record to 10-0.
