Livingston High School Girls Volleyball Wins Essex County Tournament


BLOOMFIELD, NJ – On Saturday, Nov. 1, Livingston High School’s girls volleyball outlasted Montclair-Kimberley in a stellar comeback victory, 2-1, at Bloomfield High School for the championship of the Essex County Tournament.

Despite going down, 1-0, to start the match, Livingston stepped it up with great play from Tori Fogg, Christine Lee, and Gayle Edelstein to come back from their deficit.

Edelstein especially had a great game throughout, setting up her teammates with assists for devastating spikes leading easy points.

Sophomore Rachel Cherny stated about being tournament champions, “Our keys to success were our communication and our defense. It was a great feeling winning, and also during preseason, winning counties was our goal and it felt great to achieve it.”

Livingston was able to win the next two sets 25-22 and 25-22 by “fighting hard and playing smart. The passing of the team was one of the key factors that led to the win,” states Coach Al Partelow.

Winning their first 18 games of the season, Livingston looked good coming into the tournament, but later on they lost to Caldwell, North Hunterdon, and Hunterdon Central. This did not hurt Livingston’s confidence, and as the top seed of the tournament, they were able to clinch the win and bring home the school’s six county title.

With the county title at their sides, Livingston is now on the move towards trying to win the state tournament.
