Athenas Crush Redlands in 3

Game Recap By Ben Levine

The CMS Athenas (8-7, 3-2 SCIAC) dominated in a straight-set win this past Friday night against the Redlands Bulldogs (1-11, 1-4 SCIAC) to move to 3rd in the SCIAC standings.

The Athenas won the first set 25-17 after struggling a bit at the start. Their flat start, however, was quickly replaced by an energetic focus that the team rode to victory. The Athenas started the second set how they ended the first, by winning 10 of the first 13 points. However, CMS faltered while closing out the second set, allowing the Bulldogs to build the momentum for a comeback. Dorothy Catanese was instrumental in the comeback; the clear emotional leader of this Redlands team was all over the court in attempt to even the score. The Athenas eventually regained composure, winning the set 25-22. CMS pulled away largely due to the presence of Taylor Jones (CMC ’13) who controlled the flow of the game with her game-high 31 sets. The Athenas were clinical in the third set, making short work of the Bulldogs attempts en route to a 25-14 (3-0) win.

CMS will be visiting Whittier on October 21, but will look immediately to extend their win streak to 3 by immediately going on the road tonight, October 1st against Occidental.
