Girls volleyball reaches county semifinals, players receive awards

Dan Miranda, Sports Editor

The girls volleyball team wrapped up the 2012 season with a loss to Massapequa in the Nassau County semifinals, but not before completing the season with individual accomplishments.  First year Head Coach Mr. Bryan Patterson finished the season fourth in the top conference in Nassau County with a 7-9 overall record (6-8 conference).

“I’ve played alongside many of these girls for four years and have seen extreme improvement,” said senior Sarah Roberts.  “We had an amazing season this year and I see great potential in the returning players.”

All-County and Conference awards were plentiful.  Junior Megan Murphy was the only player on the team to win All-County recognition.  Junior Kristin Cangemi and senior Deidre Hansen both won All-Conference honors.  Murphy also took home an All-Tournament award for the playoffs.

“The girls who received awards worked really hard throughout the season.  Making it to the semifinals against Massapequa was a great accomplishment,” said senior captain Tori Lehrer.  “Hopefully the team will succeed next year.”

The team will graduate four seniors this spring.
