WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. Co-captains Ester Kim and Lauren Stuzin proudly wore their battle makeup -- black-and-blue dashes of face paint on both cheeks the war paint of an undefeated Edgemont volleyball team that was looking for another win against host White Plains.
Were doing pretty well so far, 4-0, said Kim, who also sported a sequined head band and signage on the front of both legs, before the match. Weve played together for a couple of years and we know each other pretty well.
That tight teamwork may have been more important a factor than the makeup and accessories to their blue-and white uniforms as the Panthers rolled to their latest win, a 25-16, 25-19, 25-20 straight sets victory over the Tigers.
I think we are more confident each time we play, Stuzin said. We all get along and we are communicating on the court. Everyone is supporting each other.
Edgemont used a good service game and intelligent net game. Stuzin led the way with six kills and an assist and teammate Vivian Zhong had three kills and eight assists. Julie Conclino had two kills and four assists and Melanie Klerer added five assists.
