Orleans County YMCA Happenings

MEDINA — Here's what's going on this week at the Orleans County YMCA in Medina, with league results and commentary courtesy of the Y staff.

Fall Indoor Volleyball
We are coming down to the final weeks in volleyball. In the B division, teams fought for playoff position in every match. In our first match Heisenberg took on Bumpin Uglies. Heisenberg took the match 3-0 by a score of 75-47. Riley Welker had a strong performance, crushing the ball down with authority. He was on a rampage each game. Lindsay Froman gave a strong performance also but was unable to keep her team in it, as they fell to the stronger Heisenberg. 
In our second match of the night, Bridget’s Bashers pushed for a higher seed in the playoffs as they defeated Job Corp 3-0 by a score of 75-56. Bridget Stopa wouldn’t let her team fall, shocking the crowd with countless diving saves. They are poised to make a run in the playoffs. 
The last game was No. 1 seed Cupcakes taking on a rolling Victorious Secret. Ultimately, after an amazing comeback in game one, Cupcakes steamrolled to a 3-0 victory by a score of 75-52. VS captain Danny Anderson said afterwards, "We should have never lost that first game. That completely destroyed us. I know we can do better and I still believe in this team." Look for these two teams to have one final battle in the playoffs, where everything is on the line. 
In C division, Shnoogadonks took on Just Us, winning 2-1 by a score of 76-60. Donks serves were just too much for Just Us, with the power-crushing force of every team member allowing them to take the lead and never look back in games one and three. 
Main Liquor then played a doubleheader, starting against Misfits. Main Liquor looked dominant in the first outing, earning a 3-0 victory by a score of 75-48. With solid play, Mistfits had no idea what hit them. The games flew by, with great serving from Allison Zinkievich.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE WELLSVILLE AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Are you doing a double take again? This looks a lot like downtown Medina, but it's actually a block of downtown Wellsville, where voters in 2006 rejected a village dissolution proposal that was put up jointly by the Wellsville village and town boards.
