The Lady Wildcats hosted their 2nd annual Invitational Volleyball Tournament on Saturday 9/23.  The teams in attendance were: Whitman, Bellport, Islip, Syosset, Centereach, East Slip, Huntington and Port Jefferson.  Whitman won Pool A which included a split with Syosset and victories against Bellport and Islip. 

In the first round of the playoffs, Whitman defeated Port Jefferson.  In the second round, Whitman defeated Syosset.  The finals were a rematch with Centereach who the Wildcats defeated on Wednesday at NYIT (coming back from down 0-2).  Centereach won the first set 26-24, but the Whitman girls fought back and won the match in 3 sets to win the tournament.  The Wildcats have won the tournament both years. 

Maelyn Latko, Amanda DeWitt and Noelle Bryggman were selected to the All-Tournament Team and Ally DeGaray was named Tournament MVP.  Coach Greco would like to thank all the parents, the JV girls players and several of the boy's volleyball players for volunteering their time to help the tournament run smoothly.
