After eleven consecutive Western Mass titles and six consecutive Massachusetts titles, the pressure is on our Frontier Volleyball team to continue their winning ways. After losing eight seniors, the team now has four juniors, seven sophomores, one freshman and one eighth grader. Varsity coach Sean McDonald will coach the team for the 14th year in a row. The JV team will have a familiar face this year, volleyball alumni Courtney Parent, and another former volleyball player Angelica Perfido will coach the girls middle school team.
“This is definitely a building year but we have some really talented students will continue to push ourselves to be the best we can,” junior outside hitter Selayna Bathurst says. The Hawks currently have a record of 4-5 and have to win five more games or win half of the Division 3 teams they play in order to make the playoffs this year. “I believe we have the potential to play in another Western Mass game this year. We have been working extremely hard on staying focused and growing as a team. Many people doubt us but I know we have it in us to possibly continue the legacy.” junior Grace Randall says. The Hawks just hosted their annual Spike-It for Life game against Longmeadow on, October 7th in the Goodnow Gymnasium. Spike-It-For-Life is a breast cancer awareness event that the team uses to raise and donate money to cancer patients in need.
