Rosary goes down fighting in sectional semifinals
Nov 4, 2014 11:21 PM -
It looked pretty grim for Rosary after the opening game against Marian Central Catholic. "We all went back to the huddle after the first set and looked each other in the eye," Rosary libero extraordinaire Martha Konovodoff said. "We all said, ‘It's (the season) not going to end that easy.'" The Royals were an entirely different team in the second set, staving off 5 match points in the first semifinal of the Class 3A Rochelle girls volleyball sectional on Tuesday night. Rosary would score the final 3 points of the second set to force a decisive third game, but Marian -- the Royals' longtime former conference rival -- had too much size on the interior for the Royals.
