ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury High School volleyball team lost its match Monday against high-ranked Union Catholic team, but hopes it can learn from the experience and do better this week when Morris County Tournament play begins.

The Gaels were defeated by Union Catholic 2-0 at home. They were outpaced by the Vikings 25-19 and 25-15, a loss that brought their season record to 9-4.

"The girls fought hard against Union Catholic, currently ranked Number 11 in the NJ.com Statewide Top 20," said Gaels coach Anthony McMichael. "Union Catholic is a premier program, and they are extremely well coached by Nancy Saggio."
