GLENS FALLS – Written on an index card were the words, “Defend our title.” Those words were put down on the card by Bainbridge-Guilford’s head coach Tami Selfridge prior to the start of the 2018 season as a goal for the Bobcats Volleyball team.
Sunday, needing one final point, the Bobcats’ Erica Selfridge delivered the serve over the net. After three hits set up a spike for Panama, B-G’s Marissa Cuozzo was there for the backline pass to Erica. The sophomore then made a set in the air for her sister, Abi Selfridge, who sent the kill attempt at the Panthers.
The Panthers’ Madalyn Bowen went up with two hands for the block. The ball deflected off her arms and landed out of bounds, giving the Bobcats a sweep over the Panama Panthers and their second straight New York State Class D Championship.
“It feels awesome,” said Selfridge (as she began to show emotion following the win.) “We all wanted it so badly. We just had to focus on just one point at a time. The girls came out and they played awesome. We played awesome last year at the state championship match and we did it again this year. I’m just super proud of them.”
