Onaga Bishop Seabury Academy opened its volleyball season with a split of two matches Thursday at the Onaga triangular.
The Seahawks fell to Onaga, 25-9, 25-11, but beat Jackson Heights, 25-23, 25-10.
Taylor Hodge had nine of Seabury’s 13 aces and nine of 26 digs. Maria Smith had seven assists and Ellen Almanza 10 kills.
“It was our first match of the year, and we played tight the whole match,” Seabury coach Chrissy Leuty said of the Onaga loss. “We are a young team, and we never really settled in. (Against Jackson Heights) I could tell the girls were a bit more comfortable on the court. … The girls showed a hint of what is to come, and it coule be pretty exciting.”
Seabury will travel Saturday to the McLouth tournament.
