The 2017 Springfield High School Volleyball Team has some very exciting goals this year such as winning the league title, which would add another number to the championship banner. This group of girls has been playing together since the 7th and 8th grade and their bond has only gotten tighter adding to the team’s incredible chemistry.  With this possibly being coach Knight’s last year, the girls are determined to make him proud. He has been here coaching the ladies for thirty years.

The new athletic league changed this year from the ITCL to the MVAC (Mahoning Valley Athletic Conference) helping the team feel even more confident about reaching their goal since it’s a fresh set of teams to play. Makenzy Capouellez, a junior, feels that “This is the closest team I’ve ever been on, and I believe we have a shot at even districts not just our league.” So far, they have a winning record with only three losses halfway through the season.  Capouellez is a back row specialist on the team.

Kaelen Yemma, also a junior, states, “Volleyball is such a mental game, as soon as you make a mistake you have to forget about it and focus on the next point. That’s the most challenging part.” Yemma is the team’s setter and explains how the team always picks each other up. The team not only has goals of winning the league, but also going far in the tournament rounds and possibly winning districts.

Another junior on the team, Ellie Centofanti says, “Yes this is a challenge but we’re ready to take on anything as a team we just want to be successful.” Centofanti is a backrow and weak side hitter. The team plays next on September 18th at home. The match will start at approximately 6:30 p.m. vs. Poland and they are predicting to bring in another win.
