The Newtonite

Girls’ volleyball, 19-2, was the top seed in its division for the postseason and had a successful season, according to senior Meredith Abrams, a captain with the rest of the seniors. The Tigers advanced to the Sectional Finals before falling to Brookline in five-set thriller.
A highlight of the season for Abrams was when the Tigers hosted the Warriors Friday, Sept. 23.
“It was really exciting to beat them at home, and it was a really intense game,” she said.
Abrams added that the team also accomplished its goal of capturing the Bay State conference title.
According to coach Richard Barton, the team accomplished its goal of “beating every team we faced––including two State Champions––at least once.”
Abrams, juniors Keane Brazda and junior Deanna Cortina and sophomore Alana King were named Bay State Conference all-stars. Brazda was also a Globe all-scholastic.
All of the seniors on next year’s team will be captains.
