A year ago, girls’ volleyball walked off the court following a heartbreaking 3-1 loss to Barnstable in the State Finals. Saturday, the Tigers will have a shot at redemption as they take on the Raiders in a rematch of last year’s championship.
Girls' volleyball became the latest Tiger squad to advance to the State Championship last night with a 3-0 win over Concord-Carlisle. The Tigers will face Barnstable for the title Wednesday at Canton High. The Tigers fell to Barnstable 3-1 last year in the final.
