MHS Volleyball Navigates Tough Schedule

The Milford High girls' volleyball team entered the final week of the season in position to capture a spot in the district tournament and continuing to show improvement despite losing a key player to an injury.
"It has been a very, very grueling week," said head coach Tammy Webber. "We have made some gains
in coming through in big spots. I am hoping we keep improving and we get to the point where we really see people respond."
The Scarlet Hawks lost Elise Fauerbach, but numerous players have stepped up to keep MHS playing at a high level. Lauren Corsini has been anchoring the right side on the Milford attack and sophomore Lexi Starks has been playing middle hitter.
"Lexi has been clutch in some of our matches," Webber said. "The pressure did not get to her. I have been happy with how Lexi has stepped up and Lauren moving to the right side was a good move. It's helped out with the block and opened up our offense a little more, she is effective on the right side."
Milford dropped a 3-0 decision against North Attleboro, its third setback in a row. With three matches left in the season, MHS' record was 8-7 overall and
8-5 in the Hockomock League. One more victory puts Milford in the postseason.
After a road game against Stoughton Wednesday, Milford is set to host Canton on Friday, October 25, before the final match of the regular season Monday, October 28, against Hopedale. "We've just got to get one more win," Webber said.
Julia Riordan has been quarterbacking the MHS offense as the team's setter. "I think she is one of the top setters in the league, from what I have seen," Webber said. "Her serving has been tough and she has been getting to every second ball, which is a big plus."
Allison Corsini has also been strong in the middle with relatively few errors. She is averaging 10 kills per match and coming up with a number of big kills when Milford needs points, Webber said. Alyssa Williamson and Sarah Brogioli has played well on the outside, putting together kills and aces in crucial spots.
Eva Parson, the team's libero has been able to get to the ball that Milford would not have previously been able to get to, Webber said.
"Overall, I've been happy with how we have played, we just have to cut down on the errors," Webber said. "We knew we can play with anyone."
