ROXBURY, NJ - It was a good day Monday for Roxbury High School sports as both the volleyball and field hockey teams enjoyed victories.

The volleyball team won a home court match against Morris Hills with a 2-0 shutout. It was the Gaels's fourth win of the season and it brought their record to 4-1. 

The field hockey team also blanked its opponents with a 4-0 shutout over Morris Knolls. Its record is now 4-2.

Volleyball coach Anthony McMichael said his team seemed to carry over to Monday's match, some of the energy and enthusiasm it displayed at the Northern Valley Invitational on Saturday. Although Roxbury lost to top-seeded River Dell, the players had fun.

"We were able to ride momentum from our weekend tournament into our regular season match play," McMichael said after Monday's match. "Reghan Palanchi was a force at the net as a hitter and as a defender. On the service line, Aniela Martinez consistently put pressure on the Morris Hills serve-receive passers, which made it difficult for them to run their offense."

Palanchi, a senior middle blocker, said the Gaels are working well together. "I think our team has bonded very well and it shows on the court," she said. "We take the games one point at a time and all do our part to win each point."

Senior defensive specialist and team captain, Aniela Martinez, also praised her teammates. "Different girls were able to step up into positions that they normally don't play and they succeeded," she said. "We kept a positive attitude and we were all team players. That's what helped us succeed."

The field hockey team next plays Chatham on Wednesday at home. The volleyball team next plays Morris Knolls today at 4 p.m. at Knolls.
