Volleyball Caps Inaugural Season on a High Note

The volleyball team finished off its inaugural season with an exciting intramural match Thursday afternoon. The blue squad ended up on top, taking both games in the season finale. Highlights from the match included Michelle Mejia-Levy serving her team back from a seven-point deficit in the second game, Sonia Kim’s tenacious defensive play, and Elena Dainora Cohen’s strong net game. Overall, coaches Ellie Brennan and Anderson Santos, along with Nathalie Pellenq, created a positive and supportive environment for a group of first-time players to learn the game and have some fun. Needless to say, volleyball is here to stay.
