Coginchaug Fall Sports Preview: Girls' Volleyball

"We're working on the building blocks because there's a lot of talent and a lot of potential," says coach Kara Neidhardt.


Last Season: Tied for 6th (out of 9 teams in Shoreline Conference)

Season Opener: Tonight, vs. East Hampton, at East Hampton High School at 5:30 p.m.

Coach Neidhardt's Season Outlook: We're coming off a rebuilding year. Right now we have a mix of returning athletes, some that have played varsity ball. I have a really strong junior class and I have three seniors who are leaders on and off the court. They're a really good group.

Our goal is to make both of the tournaments. Our season opener is against East Hampton. That's going to be tough but we're going to come out swinging. Every year the conference has gotten more competitive. 

It's such a team sport. That's one of the things we're definitely emphasizing, that we can't get there unless we get there together. We're going to be competing at the top level by next year. I am confident of that.

Seniors: Katie Bednarz, Kayla Makara, Kelly Donovan, Mary Yale, Ashley Vanaman (Complete roster here)
