TUXEDO — The Tuxedo Lady Tornadoes came close to winning the Section 9 Class D Volleyball Finals this past weekend at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, falling to Pine Plains in sectional play, 3-1.

After winning the Sectional Semifinal Game against Webutuck in three sets on Nov. 6, the team fought hard in division play against Pine Plains’ height advantage, even with senior outside hitter Emma Meore leaving the court due to a health issue.

But, the team came up short in four sets: 23-25, 25-22, 25-22 and 25-18.

Coach Michelle Hines praised the team’s tenacious tournament play.

“We are so proud of these girls,” she said. “They never gave up. They fought until the very end. This is what Tuxedo is all about.”

George F. Baker High School Principal Jason Schrammel said the team serves as an inspiration to all Tuxedo students.

“This team’s work ethic is an example for all of our students,” he added. “Tuxedo consistently demonstrates its ability to excel with dedication and perseverance. Our team’s Division III volleyball title (the first since 2003), and advancement to Class D finals, shows this school can hold its own against other schools in sports.”
