Volleyball Team Update

The Newman volleyball season is in full swing! They had a lot of great players graduate last year, but the current players are working hard and it’s paying off. According to Ellie Montgomery, a junior and three-year member of the team, their success has been “on and off” but, considering that they lost a lot of starting players, they’re doing really well.

On Monday, they played St. Katherine Drexel at Newman and crushed them! Then, on Thursday, they played Ben Franklin. Newman put up a good fight and all of the games were close, but unfortunately, they lost 3-0.

Looking ahead, they play Berwick in the Palaestra on Tuesday. Then, on Thursday, middle school, JV, and Varsity all play Sacred Heart in the Palaestra. They would love a lot of fan support, so come out and shows your Greenie spirit at this rivalry game!
