The Massapequa High School girls’ volleyball team started out the year on a winning way by sweeping Hicksville in their first league match then winning the Hendrick Hudson Tournament in Montrose NY on Saturday, September 10.
The girls went 6-2 in pool play then cruised through the playoffs by winning all four games. The Chiefs were led by tournament MVP senior blocker Joanne Josephson and All Tournament Player senior hitter Kerry Purcell.
Helping on the formidable front line was senior Heather Sweeney and junior Lauren Van Buren. Also making huge contributions were setters Kristen Marchisotto and Samantha DePasquale as well as a strong defense led by Erin Bies and solid all around team play.
