Volleyball Earns Big Road Win

Carly Barbato – September 24, 2019

On Saturday, Deerfield varsity volleyball took the long road trip to Greenwich, CT to face Sacred Heart and Pomfret, emerging with one loss and one win. The Big Green defeated Pomfret in their second game of the day to improve their early season record to 3-2.

In their second match on Saturday, the Big Green competed with energy, enthusiasm, confidence, and hustle. Deerfield’s blockers stepped up against strong hitters from Pomfret. The Green and White were able to put a number of pieces together: impressive blocking from Keri Clougherty ‘21, Aoife Bruce ‘22, and Evan Burkert ‘21; great hitting from Camila Navarro ‘20 and Georgia Sackrey ‘23; strong passing from Nat Jimenez ‘20; great passing and serving from Emily Pajak ‘21; and intelligent setting from Rosa Sun ‘21.

The Big Green earned the 2-0 (25-11, 27-25) team win.

On Wednesday, Deerfield travels to Loomis to take on the defending Class A New England champions. Tune in watch Loomis’ livestream of the game, by clicking here.
