BVT Volleyball Makes it a CAL Three-Peat

Another season, another Colonial Athletic League title for the Blackstone Valley Tech girls volleyball team. The Beavers finished the regular season 15-5 and rolled through league play a perfect 12-0 to capture the league championship for the third straight year. Head coach Barbara King said her team has been just as much fun as they have been talented.
"This is one season I don't want to end," King said. "These girls are awesome. They really enjoy being around each other. It's a lot of fun. It's fun just to go to practice and hang out with them."
King said she expects her team to be somewhere in the middle of the pack when the district tournament seeds are released and she anticipates some difficult matches on the scheduled for the early rounds. The Beavers will be coming into the tournament fresh off a win in the state vocational semifinals and an appearance in the title tilt against Greater New Bedford.
Despite suffering a pair of late-season losses, BVT still ended the season with plenty of momentum with wins in seven of its last nine matches. Senior Rebecca Rose continues to lead the way for the Beavers, with 136 kills and 64 service aces - both team-high totals - and more than 160 digs, the second highest total on the squad.
"She is a constant straight across the board," King said. "She's a captain and has stood out with her kills, her serves, she has been consistent with everything, including her leadership on the court."
King also praised senior setter Olivia Bianco, who has more than 200 assists on the season and has helped quarterback the BVT offense along with fellow senior Teresa Facey.
"Olivia has been great as a setter, she had a really strong game for us in the state vocational tournament, she is that " King said. "Teresa is probably the most consistent server we have, she has very few errors this year."
Senior libero Karina Ramos leads the team in digs with nearly 270 and has been "phenomenal," according to her head coach. King pointed to the nine member senior class as a whole as a reason for the team's success.
"They have been together since their freshman year and they all get along they hang out outside of school, and they have always been strong leaders," King said. "They have exceeded expectations.
"I didn't know what to expect," she continued. "We lost some keep players from last year and I wasn't sure how this team was going to go, but they really exceeded my expectations. They play well together, the chemistry is there, and they talk really well on the court. When one is having a bad game, someone else picks them up."
Despite a strong season and 15 regular-season wins, King says her squad will have its work cut out facing the iron of Central Mass in the district tournament.
"It's going to be tough," she said. "We have a tendency to struggle sometimes against stronger teams, but you never know, things can change. If we play like we did against Bristol-Plymouth [in the state vocational semifinal] we will be just fine."
