While the high school playoffs are heating up around the area one local college athlete is setting the record book ablaze. Brenna White of Mercy College is a freshman on the school’s volleyball team and while other first year players are fighting for minutes and playing time White has the opportunity to break a school and possibly an NCAA record.
Yesterday as White and the Mavericks defeated Molloy College in four sets the freshman recorded a career high of 31 kills, giving her over 600 on the season. No Maverick has reached the mark in a decade, and already White ranks third all time in Mercy history for a single season. With games left on the schedule she could find herself with the all time mark in no time.
White also leads all divisions in the NCAA with 611 kills on the year, and no freshman has ever finished the season with that distinction. Could make for a historical season for the Mercy freshman.

Score: Ablertus Magnus Won 1-1 (OT) 4-3 in penalty kicks
Highlights: Katherine O’Connell found Julia McGowan with less then four minutes left in overtime for the team’s only goal. Tara Condon had 12 saves during the game, and a few big ones during the penalty kicks in the win.
“Almost every girl on the team lost power. We went crazy, going all over the county to practice, but every day we were out there rain, shine, snow, sleet, hail, we were playing.” Said Condon on the week that was, “We are from North Rockland, we got a lot of heart, we got a lot of soul and we have a lot of determination. These girls know to not let anything get in their way so we are going to come out and give it all we can again tomorrow.”
The girls will suit up this afternoon at Briarcliff.
