The Ludlow High School girls’ volleyball team is off to a strong start, leading their league with a perfect 6-0 record.

The team returned six starters and added freshman Alyssa Guyon, who become the youngest player on the varsity team.

The team appointed senior Ariana Quesnel to join returning captain senior Shannon Robitaille, who was named to Super Seven for the 2011 season. With practice beginning every day with conditioning and core skill drills, these two leaders motivate and push each member of the team to keep going and not give up when the workout is tough.

“We have a very experienced team behind us this year, and we all can achieve greatness if we push ourselves to the limit and always try our best,” said Robitaille.

This year, there was a great show of freshmen players that came in and were willing to communicate and bond with their teammates like they’ve known each other for years, but a lot of credit must be given to the class of 2013, as many athletes stepped up and made the transition from JV to varsity, and always take pride and responsibilty in their work, explains Robitaille.

The Ludlow girls have transformed to one big family, and are preparing to face their rivals on the court; from prior seasons, they know Sabis and Tantasque high school will certainly serve them up a good match and keep them on their toes.

“We have quite a few games to warm up, and really prepare for the heat they will bring on the court,” said Robitaille, “but, they always bring the best out of us.”
