Raiders win 10 in a row

by Brian de Los Santos
Head Coach Rachael Salvione took the reins of the program last season and this season’s squad is off to a great start.
The Lady Raiders won three more matches making it a 10 game wining streak last weekend. Last Saturday in pod play at Onondaga CC, FM downed a scrappy Jefferson CC team 25-21, 25-18, and 25-20. Then FM won a long and tough match with host Onondaga 20-25, 26-28, 25-19, 25-18, and 15-5. FM capped the day with a 3-0 blanking of Cayuga CC 25-8, 25-16, and 25-18.
The current NJCAA Region 3 poll has 13-0 Monroe CC in first place, followed by 9-2 Adirondack and 7-1 Fulton-Montgomery. The fourth and fifth teams are Jamestown CC and Niagara CCC.
The Raiders met Jamestown and Niagara in pod play on September 13. FM defeated Jamestown in straight sets 25-21, 25-23, and 25-14. FM also defeated Niagara, downing the Thunder Wolves in four sets 25-18, 20-25, 25-21, and 26-24.
Last season, they lost their first match of the season to the defending conference and region champs, SUNY Adirondack. The Raiders then went on to win their next seven consecutive matches, including two against top-ranked teams.
