Volleyball continuing strong turn around after disappointing season

Sophia McCandlish, Assistant Sports Editor

Following a disappointing season, the volleyball team is doing their best to turn their success around. 

The Kits were 2-12 in the regular season play and ended the year in a devastating Regionals loss to New Trier. This appears to be completely in the past though, as their fortunes have been reversed and they now stand at 5-3.

“This season is similar but also very different because we have a smaller team and a lot of the girls are more invested in volleyball this year,” senior captain and Tufts commit Rileigh Farragher said. “A lot of people are looking to play in college and really want to have a winning season.”  

The team has looked at this season in a new light. Farragher as well as fellow senior captain Aliyah Valentine have led the team to focus on an often forgotten aspect of volleyball. 

“We focus a lot on the non-technical side of volleyball, we do a lot of conditioning and ‘hustling’ drills. If you can outwork the other team, then you can win,” Farragher said.

With this mentality running through their heads, the team looks to build upon their previous post season success, or lack thereof.
