Stuart’s energy comes up big as Herons defeat Paul Smith's College

The Great Bay Community College Women's Volleyball team picked up their fifth straight win on Sunday morning against a tough Paul Smith's College team. The Herons only loss on the season came against Paul Smith's two Sunday's ago.

Flanagan led the team with assists with five, followed by Tanguay who led the team in digs with nine as the Herons took the first set 25-21.

The Herons started hot in the second set, leading by as many as 5 points early but they weren't able to hold on, falling 21-25. Coleman's eight kills weren't enough in game three that was back and forth throughout. The Herons eventually lost 23-25.  Coming off the bench #4 Marisa Stuart, had three good serves and one dig helping the Herons come back to win to push to match the deciding 5th set.  Final score 25-20 Great Bay. Flanagan's eight assist, and Coleman's five kills, and Stuart's energy came up big as the Heron's pulled away to win the deciding game, 15- 10.


 " She {Marisa Stuart} has the momentum, she's got the energy, so really the team just needed that pick up. I think at this point, being able to have someone on the court to build that momentum is what we need to build the team together" said coach Avery in a postgame interview following the win against Paul Smith's College. 



The Herons last home game of the season, they will play Northern Essex Community College on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 6:00PM. #SeniorNight
