Ludlow High girls volleyball team lost all three sets to Southwick after going undefeated with a 33-match winning streak this season.
However, their win over Sabis’ Lady Bulldogs, Oct 10 with 25-17, 15-25, 25-20, 23-25, 15-10 victory, put them in the playoffs.
The ladies kept positive and their hard work earned them another league championship this year.
“After winning our league last year we all had tears in our eyes,” says sophomore Alyssa Guyon, “I think that’s why we work so hard, because we wanted that again.”
Guyon explains how losing 2012 graduate Shannon Robitaille each girl has had to step up their game and make huge improvements.
Two girls who have really shined this season are varsity players Colleen Dusel and Sam Chmiel.
Dusel originally starting at back row defense has now recently moved up to outside hitter and Chmiel stepping up as setter.
“Both girls have been doing a terrific job,” says Guyon.
It’s as if Ludlow has targets on their backs, everyone wants to defeat them, but as always the girls are always staying positive and never backing down.
On Nov. 6 Ludlow was defeated by Chicopee Comp bringing their season to an end.
“We’ve had such a good season with great memories,” says coach Pat Annecchiarico.
