On Sunday afternoon, the Monroe Lady Mustangs volleyball team prevailed over a thrilling, but perilous 5-game finals match vs. Genesee CC to win their first-ever District Championship. The NJCAA Division II District Tournament was played this weekend in Magnolia, DE. Monroe defeated host Delaware Tech and CCRI on Saturday to qualify for the finals.
After Monroe won the first game 25-22, Genesee rebounded to take the next two, 25-22 and 25-19. In the fourth game, the Lady Mustangs were down 23-21, but staged a furious rally to take the game 26-24 and force a fifth game.
