BVT Volleyball Wins League Title
The Blackstone Valley Tech girls volleyball team completed the regular season 17-3 and left little doubt when it came to the Colonial Athletic League. The Beavers picked up a pair of victories over Worcester Tech to hand that team its only losses in league play and secure the league title for BVT with a perfect 12-0 mark.
"I think this team is right up there with my 2007 team," said head coach Barbara King. Her 2007 squad also went unbeaten in league play and captured the state vocational title. "That was a great year but talent-wise, this team is right up there with them."
The Beavers' regular season performance was good enough to turn them into the top seed in the large school division of this week's state voke tourney. Bristol-Plymouth, Greater New Bedford, and Greater Lawrence were the other three teams chosen to play in the exclusive field.
As a 17-win team, the Beavers will come into the districts as a high seed and will try to do something the 2007 team did not by winning a game in the tournament.
Marissa Bunnewith has been, literally, one of the biggest factors in BVT's success. The 6'1" middle hitter has been an anchor on the court and has brought a strong knowledge of the sport into the mix as well. "Having her is like having another coach on the team," said King of Bunnewith, who keeps her skills sharp by playing on club teams most of the year. "It was good to have her perspective out there because there would be times where she might make suggestions if I wanted to change something we were doing. She sees a different side of the game and brought great leadership to the team."
Bunnewith had to miss some time during the season, so Caitlin Carrington stepped into her role and allowed the Beavers to maintain a high level of play. "She was very strong as the middle hitter and continued to serve well," said King. "Even when Marissa came back, Caitlin's stats have been there. She is a consistent server and has a natural approach to the net."
Val Bishop, Alana Thirsk, Kristen Brewer, and Casey Stone have also helped anchor BVT and have provided both offense and defense throughout the season. Stone has been a pleasant surprise for her head coach. "She didn't get a ton of playing time last year, since we had six seniors, but she has stepped up this year," said King. "She doesn't put up big time stats but I never take her off the court. She is a consistent player who serves well and is in the right place at the right time and she never seems to get frazzled out there."
King makes no secret of the fact that she would like to see her team advance once district tournament play starts this week. "We will take things one game at a time, but winning in the districts is another goal we hope to accomplish," she said.
