Volleyball Pre-season Press Release

Kennedy Catholic Varsity Volleyball begins a new season with a new coach and five returning players.  Coach Tony Santora has taken on the responsibility of coaching varsity after coaching JV for the last few years.  The team graduated five members last year, so the rising seniors will be taking the lead on the court.  Kelly Gallagher continues in her fourth year as setter.  Mary Burns will start as outside hitter.  Katelynn Ryan will be the starting middle blocker and Mary Helen Baudinet will play right side.  Johanna Weidenhamer has joined varsity and will play middle block.

Megan Erb, will continue to play as libero and defensive specialist.  She will be joined by juniors – Teresa Divino (L), Francesca Del Monte (S),  Sondra Montague (S), Laurunce Rosenthal (RS/DS)and Gianna Vesce (MB).

Also joining varsity this year are sophomores – Alana Dinelli (DS), Danielle Kralik (OH), Tara Cooney (RS) and Caroline Tompkins (L/DS). Joining their sisters in their first year at Kennedy are Annie Burns (OH/RS) and Meagan Gallagher (OH/DS).  These younger players had a strong showing this summer at the Grass Doubles Tournament.  Annie Burns went to the semi-finals, Caroline Tompkins’ team came in second and Meagan Gallagher’s team took first place for the second year in a row (B Division).

After dominating in their respective Catholic grammar schools, it is wonderful to see the love of volleyball continue at Kennedy.  Six members of the team played for St. Patrick’s School – Bedford which won the Catholic Youth League Championship this spring.  Other players come from St. Augustine’s in Ossining and St. Patrick’s – Yorktown.  St. Theresa’s in Briarcliff Manor, which closed a couple of years ago, always enjoyed a strong volleyball program and has contributed several players to the Kennedy squad over the years.

The team is looking forward to a promising season competing in the New York Catholic High School Athletic Association and playing their neighboring schools in the Panas, Yorktown and Millbrook tournaments.  This will be the team’s second year in the NYCHSAA. The team hopes to continue their progress and compete in the NYCHSAA state championships in November.

The first match will be on September 3rd at Mary Louis Academy in Queens.  The first home game is 9/5/2014 against Molloy.  The team hopes to see you there!
