Gaikis Leads Sting on Grad Night

The Seneca Sting (12-4) capped off their regular season home schedule with a straight sets win over the Fleming Knights (4-12) 25-17, 25-17, 25-18.

The win was the fifth straight for the Sting who in early January looked like a team going in the wrong direction following a 7-2 first semester record.

The Sting dominated the match from the opening serve, gaining energy from a pregame ceremony recognizing four graduating student-athletes in Toms Gaikis (5th year), Malik Welsh (4th year), Richard Ngo (2nd year) and Isaiah Fogah (2nd year).

Gaikis led the Sting with 14 kills to go along with 4 digs. His biggest kill of the night came on match point when setter Savino Marques (34 assists) back set Gaikis who finished the match with an uncontested kill.

Fogah had one of his best games of the season, recording 9 kills and 5 digs as he looks to contribute more during the post season. Malik Welsh wrapped up a four year career at home with 7 kills and the always steady Richard Ngo led the Sting with 8 digs.

Spencer Bieri topped the Knights with 7 kills. Dion Pearson-Laviolette added 5 kills and Jake Schuller led the Knights with 9 digs. Colin Crain and Sebastien Deschamps each added 10 assists.
