It has been a tough year for North Salem volleyball, but the squad has managed to find their bright spots.
In an already shortened season with limited practice time, the squad has taken their share of bumps on the court. The Tigers would travel to Pawling on Monday, March 29, taking a tough loss 3-1 (21-25, 25-15, 25-20, 25-23).
On Wednesday, March 31, North Salem would play away at Putnam Valley, coming away with their first victory of the season. The win was also the first for new varsity coach Nick Giordano. North Salem would win handily 3-1 (19-25, 22-25, 25-22, 12-25). Mya Opfer had six blocks, and Sara Major had seven kills and three aces in the victory.
The Tigers would once again be on the road on Thursday, April 1, as they took a loss against Somers. The Tuskers won in straight sets 3-0 (25-13, 25-6, 25-14). Grace Woelfle had 15 digs and Ellen Herlihy added two blocks.
Aside from earning the first win of the season, another bright spot for the Tiger squad came on March 25, when the team honored their seniors and their families. This year, North Salem volleyball will be losing five key members to graduation. Camille Flayhan, Ellen Herlihy, Antonia Macera, Allison Outhouse, and Catherine Senatore will all be leaving the squad this year.
