Wow!

The Lady Hurricanes Volleyball team has certainly made an impact in the two seasons since its inception. What was, just a couple of years ago, a brief and rather mundane discussion at the School Committee level about adding some funding to the school budget to cover the cost of equipment, referees, coaches, things like that, has turned into something else altogether: one of the hottest tickets in town that has people on their feet cheering.

Anyone who has been to one of the games will see that familiar Block Island toughness, coupled with a fierce team spirit, an esprit de corps, that is inspiring to see.

Now the team is heading into the semi-finals with a record of 16-1. If you look at the stats provided by Coach Rob Martin in his story that starts on page one, you’ll see that these athletes chalk up so many aces that the opposing team hardly gets a chance to get their hands on the ball.

Kudos to the coach, and to assistant coach Jami Newell, and to the athletes themselves: Sophie Mott, Lucy Rigby-Leather, Amira Wilson, Michaela Brown-Padien, Savannah Brown, Charlotte Hall, Alison Pineda, Moira O’Neill, and Stella Gockenbach.
