The Blue Colts knocked off Bucks County College in four sets for their first win of the season. The 2019 team, boasting nine freshmen of eleven total student-athletes, bounced back from an opening set loss to defeat Bucks County College on Tuesday night 3-1. The win gives new head coach Henry Romero his first win at the helm of the team and at the college level.
“I thought we were consistent throughout the evening and the group did a good job of maintaining composure,” Romero said. “The way we performed in set one was a really good sign for the future. We were able to get rid of some nerves and some small things that maybe weren’t in line yet. There is still a lot of learning going on, but for this group to go out and put forth a collective effort as we did and come away with a victory in the first match is a good sign moving forward.”
During the games, freshmen setter Gabriella Rosano tallied 24 assists and six digs. Freshmen middle blocker Rachel Otoo chipped in eight digs and five kills of her own to continue the momentum of the night. Meanwhile, freshmen Kilanny Ramos-Adrian stuffed the stat sheet, totaling nine kills, 18 digs and three aces to lead the MCC Blue Colts to victory.
The Blue Colts’ next matchup is a home match on September 10 against the County College of Morris in the Blue Colt Arena.
