WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - It was a fitting Senior Night for the Wood-Ridge girls volleyball team.
Madylin Marino had 13 kills and 13 assists to lead the Wood-Ridge girls volleyball team to a 2-0 victory over Saddle Brook. The win gave the Lady Blue Devils the NJIC Meadowlands championship with a perfect 16-0 league record. It is the their third straight undefeated league championship, and fourth straight overall, and they have not lost in 71 consecutive league matches.
Before the game, Wood-Ridge senior players were recognized for the time and dedication they put into the program. Each girl received a gift, and posed with photos with their families. The ceremony also recognized the Saddle Brook seniors. In addition, grandparents of the Wood-Ridge players were also honored.
The Lady Blue Devils won 25-16, 25-12 over the Falcons, who fell to 12-9 overall. Erica DiMarco had 15 assists and 13 service points to lead the Blue Devils in those categories. DiMarco tied with teammate Amanda DiMase with two service aces. DiMase also also contributed seven service points and seven assists.
Wood-Ridge will move on to the first NJIC Girls Volleyball championship next week, facing Rutherford at 5:30 on Tuesday in Bogota. Bogota will face off in the nightcap, with the winners meeting Wednesday evening at 7 pm, following the consolation match set to start at 5:30.
"The team and I are so excited for this title since we replaced 5 starters from last season and the thought was to rebuild but we just reloaded," said head coach Andrea Marino. "Senior day was super emotional for the girls, the parents and the coaches. These girls have been a part of a program who has gone 71-1 in league play the last four years. It's been an amazing run for the entire program and I am grateful for each and every one of my players that give their heart and soul every year."
