CUNYAC / Hospital For Special Surgery
2004 - Men's Volleyball Championship

Top-Seeded Hunter Sweeps York To Capture Second Straight CUNYAC Men's Volleyball Championship

New York, NY - Top-seeded Hunter (21-7) swept third-seeded York (11-16), 30-11, 30-25, 30-14, on their home court to capture their second consecutive City University of New York/Hospital for Special Surgery Men’s Volleyball Championship.

“We really came together as a team tonight,” said Hunter co-head coach Ray Bello. “We played with a great amount of energy and the home crowd really helped us out.”

Senior middle hitter Michael McFalls recorded four kills as Hunter captured the opening game 30-11. The Hawks ran out to a 16-5 lead and the Cardinals could never recover.

York had the game deadlocked at 5-5 early in game two, but Hunter went on a 7-2 run to take a 12-7 advantage. The Cardinals closed within 26-23, but were unable to get any closer. McFalls and freshman middle hitter Emmanuel Palatulan each had five kills for Hunter in the game.

Hunter fell behind by a score of 4-1 in game three but put the game out of reach with a 15-2 spurt that staked the Hawks to a 16-6 lead.

Palatulan and McFalls (five blocks) each had 11 kills and four aces to lead Hunter. Senior setter Neil Hong, who was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament, added seven digs and 27 assists and freshman Ronaldo DaSilva added a team-high 13 digs.

“This victory really started in practice,” said Hunter co-head coach Jorge DeLaRosa. “We talked about what we would do if we played York and our players were well prepared.”

Junior outside hitter Marc Meo and freshman outside hitter Leszek Stankiewicz each had six kills to lead York.

Neil Hong“Our entire team played tremendous tonight,” said McFalls. “We have been working very hard for this all season and I’m so happy that we came through. I thought that Neil played great and was well deserving of the MVP award. He’s a terrific decision maker.”

“I have great hitters and I think that we compliment each other,” said Hong. I never expect to win any type of awards so winning the MVP is a big surprise.”

"I'm extremely proud of my team this year for their hard work and patience," said York head coach Andre M. Titus Jr.  "Winning the quarterfinal and semifinal have really motivated them to play their best and to proud to represent York and CUNY at the NECVA Championship in Buffalo, NY."

Most Valuable Player: Neil Hong (Hunter); All-Tournament Team: Michael McFalls (Hunter), Marc Meo (York), Ryan Rawlins (York), Andre Edwin (Medgar Evers), Greg Waldvogel (Baruch)
