Girls Volleyball End Fall Season 15-5

By: Stephen Zahornacky

The Girls Volleyball Team at W.F. Kaynor Technical High School finished the Fall Season with a 15-5 record.

Senior player Julia Boucher said "I worked with most of [my teammates] prior to this year's season."

Boucher is confident in what the team is capable of as a group, due to most of the team being returning players with great skills.

“The hardest part about a winning streak is maintaining it,” said senior Lilliana Moreno.

"Constantly feeling that pressure and anxiety every time we step on the court [is difficult]" Moreno said.

“It is up to the whole team to keep their composure to keep the streak on a roll.”

Coach Parillo sees seniors Julia Boucher, Lilliana Moreno, Ryan Samuel and Allie Wester as leaders on the team, saying they all possess both positive attitudes and a helpful spirit.

One of the pitfalls of this Fall season has been the shortage in trainers attending games.

Coach Parillo did not believe there was a shortage, more a "lack of notification that the principles and athletic directors had."

As Kaynor’s Athletic Director much of this dilemma was placed on Parillo's shoulders.

The Panthers made it to their league tournament and the CTC Playoffs with a record season.

Unfortunately the Lady Panthers lost to Oliver Wolcott Technical High School in their league tournament 3 sets to 0.

They also lost to Sacred Heart in their state tournaments 3-0 which ended their season.
