SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – New Girls Volleyball Team Head Coach Kacy Kelly wants to start her era with the group by taking it deep into the post season.

“For this year, I have goals of making it far in both the State and GMC tournaments,” Kacy said. “This year’s team is young, but powerful and they have a lot to offer. As long as the team continues to play its game, we as a team will accomplish great things.”

Kacy, who coached the junior varsity team last fall and then the boy’s junior varsity team in the spring, said she learned “many great things” from outgoing varsity coach Shaun Ruymen and her own high school coach, Jeff King.

“This is my first year as the Head Coach for the girl’s (team),” Kacy said. “I am very excited to take on this new role as head coach.”

Kacy said the team graduated several “key” players last year, but is confident with this year’s squad.

“I believe we are capable of great things,” she said.

Five seniors with varsity experience are returning to the squad, and are hoped to provide the leadership for the team, Kacy said.

Kacy said the junior varsity team also has a new coach this year, SBHS alumnus Nicole Alessi, and looked strong in preseason action.

“I am excited to watch them compete and dominate this season in their division,” she said.

The freshman squad also has new leadership provided by Coach Kelly Forthun, who will be giving girls just starting out in the sport the basic skills to compete.

“Since we have no feeder program for volleyball, many of the girls are playing for the first time ever,” Kacy said. “The freshman team is made up of athletic girls who are all very eager to learn and get better, I am equally as excited to watch them play this year.”
