3:57: Block from Rigo makes it 24-13 and a kill from Rigo ends thing. Glenn wins in 3, 25-12, 25-15, 25-13. Dominant from start-to-finish
3:54: Glenn is up 18-13, pulling away. Two straight aces from Canales gives SpiderKnights seven-point lead.
3:46: Glenn down 9-8; they are starting to come together. A kill fro Mckenna puts them SpiderKnights up 10-9.
3:42: Glenn down 6-0 in the third. Rigo comes back with a vicious kill to make it 6-1.
3:36: Glenn takes second on fault from Pelham, 25-15...25 points to a state title.
3:30: Kill from Rigo scrapes the left sideline. No chance for Pelham, who calls TO with the score 17-11.
3:28: 14-11 SpiderKnights... they are playing a bit sloppy now but do not appear to be in much danger. Karen Canales' kill puts them ahead 15-11.
3;25: Pelham making a minor comeback... it is now 12-9.
3:21: Rigo's second kill through a defender's legs on the bounce. 8-3 Glenn.
3:18: Rigo with a kill that bounced through the poor defender's legs. Tied at 1 in second. Rigo is scary good.
3:12: Shot long by Pelham puts SpiderKnights up 24-12. Double-hit on following play gives them the first game, 25-12. Easy, easy work thus far.
3:08: Glenn is leading 17-9.
3:04: Can we call Glenn the SpiderKnights?
3:03: Malusa block puts Glenna head 10-4.
3:01: Rigo's second block of the afternoon puts Spiders/Knights ahead 6-4. Glenn's official school mascot is Knights, but the girls volleyball team goes by the Spiders moniker. Thus, the two nicknames.
2:59: Glenn trailing 4-2 early on.
2:56: Game starting... Glenn's lineup is as followed: Melissa Rigo, Stephanie Caputo, Allison McKenna, Jackie Mausa and Karen Canales.
2:48: I am still cold.
2:41: The PA system is playing "YMCA." Insert joke here.
2:34: We are 20 minutes away here at the Glens Falls Civic Center, which is normally a minor league hockey arena. It is cold inside this building
2:22: We are about 30 minutes away from start time, as John Glenn attempts to win its first Class B State title since 2007. They are playing Pelham HS from Westchester, who they defeated in two dominant sets yesterday during the semifinal round. The Spiders went 6-0 during the semis, looking like the Class of the "B" schools. Stay with me throughout the afternoon as I give you minute-by-minute (Ok, maybe every few minutes) updates of the match.
