Lady Hawks Volleyball Racks Up Accolades as Team Heads to Districts

DOVER – To say the Delaware Tech Lady Hawks soared through this season would be an understatement.  The Women’s Volleyball team claimed the 2013 Region XIX Division II Volleyball title with a 3-0 victory over the County College of Morris on Saturday, October 26 at Lackawanna College. Freshmen Macy Alexander, Kadijah Doughty, and Samantha Pedicone all landed in the 2013 All-Tournament Team.  Pedicone was also named MVP of the tournament.  The team finished their season with a 25-2 record.

In response to winning back to back region championships in 2012 and 2013, Head Coach Cindy Savage said, “We have a great group of girls that work hard together, play hard, and push one another to reach their highest potential.” But some of the girls went above and beyond. Players Samantha Pedicone, Kadijah Doughty, and Samantha Immediato were selected to the All-Region XIX First Team and Samantha Pedicone also received Region XIX Player of the Year, NJCAA Division 2. All three players also received the honor of being named part of the Top 5 Players in the Region.
