Competing in the SWC is not forgiving for any of the volleyball teams. Kolbe Cathedral has earned each of its four wins out of conference, including a 3-0 win over Housatonic Regional on October 25.
The Cougars, however, have held their own in individual match games, making 3-0 losses a bit deceptive.
An example of this came in a 24-16, 25-19, 25-20 setback to defending conference runner-up and perennial powerhouse Newtown on October 10.
"All of our games are like this — close til the end," Kolbe Coach Roderick Ricketts said. "They didn't give up. That's what I preach, 'don't give up, work hard and make sure you're having fun.'"
The Cougars having fun win or lose behind the strong collective team play led by Mishell Pringle and Elani Gordon.
