On Friday, October 7, The Mount Greylock Girls Varsity Volleyball team added another victory to their undefeated record, beating Monument Mountain High School on the Mountie’s home court. Mount Greylock played their 13th game of the season in the packed Mount Greylock gymnasium, winning once again in a 3-0 sweep.

Families, community members and teachers filed into the gymnasium to watch the junior varsity and varsity volleyball games at 4:30pm and 6:00pm, respectively. The junior varsity teams beat the Monument team two sets to one. 

Undefeated so far, the varsity team came into the game with high spirits and hoped to keep their winning streak going. 

Varsity coach Greg Geyer said, “[The season has] been going really well. We are undefeated. We are currently ranked first in our division. And we had a great match against Longmeadow which is highly rated in several divisions above us.”

Members of the team said they felt very prepared for the game and were confident in their ability to win. “We’ve been preparing all season,” junior Kylie Sweren said. “We’re practicing really hard and taking every opportunity in every game to get better.”

During the game, Greylock started off a little shaky, but they soon pulled together and managed to maintain their perfect record with seeming ease with the help of a few memorable performances. Sweren had the standout performance with 14 aces and 22 assists. In addition, Jackie Brannan and Julia Dechaine’s combined ten kills helped bring the team to the win. 

Sweren said, “I think [the game] went pretty well. We started off a little shaky and we didn’t have much energy, but we brought it up and just remembered to have fun and play.”

The varsity team is currently ranked number one in the state. For the upcoming Western Mass tournament, Longmeadow and Frontier are seemingly the biggest threats to Greylock.
