WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - Wood-Ridge girls head volleyball coach Andrea Marino picked up her 500th career victory as the Lady Blue Devils rolled over Cresskill in the first round of the NJSIAA Group 1 Volleyball championships. The Lady Blue Devils advance to play 19th seed Roselle on Thursday afternoon in Wood-Ridge. Roselle advanced by defeating Newark Collegiate.
"They played amazing today," said head coach Andrea Marino. "They really stuck together."
Marino's 500th win coincided with the first round of the NJSIAA's, which provided additional pressure on the team.
"They had a rough practice yesterday (Monday)," said Marino. "Everybody was feeling a little nervous. It just happened to be at the same time as the states."
The Lady Blue Devils now have two days to prepare for Roselle.
