LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston girls volleyball team (No. 5) will advance into the section semifinals on Tuesday after defeating Toms River North (No. 12) in the sectional quarter finals of the Group 4 State Tournament by a 2-0 match score.

In the first game of the match, the Lancers won by a close score of 26-24. Following some tense first-game play, head coach Al Partelow said the Lancers got on track, settled down and took charge.

“The leadership and poise of the senior captains was evident, with setter Gayle Edelstein directing the offense,” said Partelow. “Senior middle Tory Fogg and Desi Brower put TRN on the defense with some strong serving and blocking. Rachel Cherny and junior Kassel Thomas placed some key spikes for points against the opponent. Junior libero Alice Ng came up with key digs on defense and junior Sophie Kushner put up key blocks at the net for a 25-15 final set.”

The Lancers will take on Cherry Hill East (No. 4) on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. Should they win, the Lancers will advance to the sectional finals on Thursday at the highest-remaining seed and then to the State Group 4 Finals at William Paterson University on Saturday Nov. 12.
