VERONA, NJ – Verona defeated Newark Academy 2-0 at home on Monday.

Verona took control of the first game about half way through and never looked back winning 25 to 13.  The second game proved to be a tighter match up.  Verona took an early lead but Newark Academy was able to tie it up at 11-11 and went point-for-point after that, though ultimately the Hillbillies came out on top winning 26 to 24.

Carly Waterman had 13 kills and six service points and Katie Kenneally finished the match with 11 assists and six service points. 

The victory improves Verona’s record to 2-7.  The Hillbillies are back in action Tuesday at home facing West Essex at 4 p.m.
