MHS Volleyball Falls in Tourney Opener


The Milford High School girls' volleyball team lost its opening round tournament match against Groton- Dunstable, marking a return to the postseason after a one-year absence.
"I felt like we fought until the end," said head coach Tammy Webber, whose team finished the year 9-10 overall. "We walked away from a four-set match with only five aces, which is crazy for us because we are a strong serving team, and only 16 kills."
Despite the slightly lower statistical output, several Scarlet Hawks stepped up in the final match of the season. Lauren Corsini played well in the middle
and junior setter Julia Riordan quarterbacked the offense effectively, her coach said. "I thought she set an exceptional match," Webber said, "probably her best match of the year."
Senior libero Sydney Sutton was strong and the Hawks put together a balanced team effort. "Everyone did what they are supposed to do, when we needed it," Webber said.
Milford will bring most of its offensive firepower back next season. Lauren and Alison Corsini, Riordan, Alyssa Williamson, Elise Fauerbach and Sarah Brogioli
are among the players slated to return. Webber's
team will have to replace several players in the back row. Sutton played her final match, as did defensive specialists Briana Maietta, a co-captain, and defensive specialist Ana Alvarenga. Co-captain Nina Pinto, an outside hitter, is also set to graduate in the spring.
"We will miss the seniors," Webber said, "but we have a good core coming back."
Webber said the depth in the program should be able to help ease the loss of the four seniors. "We should be fine offensively," she said, noting the large returning contingent. "We need to fill Sydney's role for sure at libero, but there are a lot of younger kids who are going to be vying for that, so we should be OK."
The season also saw Milford land back in a familiar spot, the district tournament. The Hawks missed the playoffs last year, but tournament appearances and league titles have been a hallmark of the program for decades. Webber made it clear that she does not expect a drop-off in 2019.
"We are not going back, this is the expectation every year, as long as I am there, it's going to continue to
be the expectation," she said. "It may take a while for people to look at Milford like they used to, but we are going to do it."
