Goshen’s varsity volleyball team has been playing pretty solidly of late.

“They’re starting to play together. They’re playing with more consistency,” said head coach Lisa Smith.

The Warriors’ chief has noticed particularly solid performances from several of her tribe. Sophomore middle hitter Mariah Gray has been tough defensively by leading her team with blocks. Senior co-captains Stephanie Gibson, the libero, and Colleen Gaffney, outside hitter, have been providing good floor leadership. Sophomore outside hitter Melanie Constable has been the leader in aces for the Red and Gray.

“The whole team is very athletic, particularly the sophomores. I think the future of the program is looking good because we have such young players who will be coming back. These sophomores have the potential to do very well in the future years,” Smith concluded.

Goshen overpowered Georgetown’s G-Women 25-20, 26-24, 25-9 and Williamsburg’s Wildcats 25-21, 25-15, 25-14. The Red and Gray was defeated by Western Brown’s Broncos in a longtime encounter 25-16, 17-25, 26-24, 23-25, 15-11.
