Volleyball Aces Second Season

Led by head coach Ellie Brennan, the volleyball team made tremendous strides this winter and is now poised to consider a shift to interscholastic competition next year. In their second season of intramurals, the team grew from 13 to 23 players and competed in weekly games against each other. In the final showdown between to the two squads, Blue came out on top 2-1. It was Blue’s first win of the season and a testament to their resiliency on the court and their support of each other. Led by co-captain Elena Ferrari’s strong serves, Blue took an early lead and never looked back. Newcomers and sixth grade classmates Chloe Mitzenmacher and Nadia Lomeli both played strong for the victors and finished their seasons on a high note. All in all, it was a great winter for the team and it will be a busy off-season as players and coaches consider whether or not to move the sport into the fall next year.
