Spikers look for return to New Englands

The Greens Farms Academy girls varsity volleyball team will start the season with a balanced combination of veteran players and players new to the varsity level.
It will look to leadership from senior captains Claire Comey and Hayes Marcus (Fairfield).
Last season was a successful one for GFA, as the Dragons earned another bid in the New England Tournament.
This season GFA will be relying on returning players: seniors Comey (setter), Marcus (back row); juniors Allie Carey (hitter) and Nina Rodgers (hitter, Fairfield), Rory Shinnick (libero); and sophomore Megan Sinnott (Fairfield, back row).
The team will also benefit from the play of its newcomers, including senior Rachel Garofoli (back row), sophomore Olivia Sullivan (middle hitter), and freshmen Abbie Comey (setter) and Ililta Pina  (back row).
“Our returning players are committed to being leaders and positive role models,” said head coach Paul Groves. “I also feel a good chemistry amongst the teammates that has created an atmosphere that is progressive, supportive and contagious.
“In looking ahead to the season, I feel we have great potential, quick learners and committed players.
“Everything will be going through Claire Comey a three-year all-league setter.
“Contributing to the hitting core are Carey, Sullivan, Rodgers and Abbie Comey.
The back-row passing has improved tremendously thanks to Shinnick at libero, along with back-row specialists Marcus and Sinnott.
The Dragons are hoping to put themselves in a great position in the FAA and earn another bid to the New England Tournament.
Their first game will be at home against Convent of the Sacred Heart on Thursday, Sept. 11, at 5 p.m.
