Syracuse Volleyball Falls to Boston College in Four Sets
By Rahill Jaiswal | @RahillJaiswal
In sports, momentum can be a cruel thing. It can go from your best friend to your worst enemy, and tonight, that was the case for the Syracuse Volleyball team in its four set loss to Boston College. After the match, head coach Bakeer Ganesharatnam detailed what exactly happened at the half-way point.
“After the second set, we wanted to come out and be very aggressive,” said Ganesharatnam. “Unfortunately, we couldn’t execute on service receive and we made some mistakes on offense. Then, we kind of lost the momentum or the confidence, whatever it might be. It was tough. Once that gap became bigger, I think it was tough mentally to stay in it. In the first set, the game was not only a game of runs but a game of momentum. I think if we had a better start in the fourth set, we could have made it more of a match.”
“We try our hardest to stay positive,” said freshman Veronica Sierzant. “We know it’s going to be a climb back to win because we were down 21-11. We all just had to keep a positive mindset of we can do this and obviously, we did not execute that but we always kept a positive mindset. We can do this and we can get back on track.”
And then there were two. Syracuse will have two more chances to get its first ACC win of the season. The first of those will come on Sunday against No. 9 Georgia Tech down in Atlanta. First serve is set for noon.
