Bergen County tournament

|Bogota's Samantha Gioiosa.
OLD TAPPAN – If a team is going to win a prestigious event like the Bergen County Volleyball Tournament, it is going to have to face and overcome situations like three-set matches where fitness and mental toughness are put to the test. As dominant as River Dell and Bogota, Tuesday night's Bergen County quarterfinal opponents, have been this season they have not often been tested to that extent yet as they have combined to go three sets just once in 42 matches.
Something had to give as the teams went head-to-head with a Bergen County semifinal berth on the line at Northern Valley/Old Tappan High School.
River Dell swept all of its previous 19 matches this season before Bogota stormed out to an early lead and took game No. 1. The No. 4 seeded Hawks responded by taking the next two games to stay unbeaten and advanced to the Bergen County semifinals with a 19-25, 25-18, 25-16 win. MORE...
