Girls Volleyball Has Another Successful Season: By Annie Burns
November 14, 2015 — The Kennedy Catholic Girls Varsity Volleyball team defeated St. Edmund Prep from Brooklyn in the New York vs Brooklyn City Championship. Kennedy’s varsity team was already the reigning champion, as it had won the same title back in 2014.
The team started off strong claiming the first set of the match, but fell behind and lost the second set. After a motivational pep talk from their captains, the team powered through to take the third and fourth sets, ultimately winning the match.
For senior captains Francesca Del Monte and Teresa Devino, the championship marked their last game as KCHS volleyball players. Both Del Monte (setter) and Devino (libero) played calmly and confidently while leading their team to victory.
“I think that our biggest strength has always been really solid defense from everyone,” shared Devino. “But in this game, I think our serving runs really put us ahead.”
“As a senior, it makes me so happy I will always be able to look back at such a great moment,” Del Monte spoke of the game. “This team was extremely close and we didn’t let anything get between us. We gave it our all and the result was priceless.”
The City Championship was also the final KCHS volleyball game for other seniors Kristina Durham, Sondra Montague, and Gianna Vesce. All of the girls were ecstatic to have ended their season on such a high note and hope to defend their winning streak next year.
