I have a few announcements as the end of our seasons approach!

  1. Coaches vs. Cancer:  I am proud to announce that we raised $500 for the American Cancer Society at our Coaches vs. Cancer Match vs. Burnt Hills.  Thank you so much for those of you who attended the match, contributed, or helped with collections.  I also want to thank those of you who baked goods and/or purchased the baked goods to donate to the Hospice of St. Peters at our Senior Night Match.
  2. JV Team:  Congratulations to the JV team for their undefeated season of 16-0!!!  This is the first team to ever accomplish this in the program and we couldn’t be more proud of your girls for your success!  Good luck to you as you finish your season at the Minisink Valley Tournament this weekend!
  3. Freshman Team: Congratulations for being Freshman Champions for the second year in a row!  You girls had an awesome season and should also be proud of your accomplishments!
  4. Modified Team:  Best of luck to you as you finish up your first season with Shen Volleyball!  You girls have done such a wonderful job this season- Keep up your hard work!
  5. Varsity Team:  The Varsity Team finished their league play with a record of 14-2, securing us the top seed for Sectional Play.  We’ve received a BYE for the first round- therefore, there is NO match this Friday.  We will play the winner of Albany-Bethlehem on Wed. 10/30.  The location has not yet been determined, so I will be sending out a follow up email.  Although we plan ahead but not focus ahead, please save the dates in case we should move on:  Sectional Championship:  11/2- 6:00 pm at Stillwater HS, Regional Championship 11/9 at Cicero-North Syracuse, and State Championship 11/16 & 11/17 at the Glens Falls Civic Center.  If we should win, we move onto the next event and would APPRECIATE having the support of the program players and families. 
  6. Coach Cooney:  As many of you know, our Shen Volleyball Alumnist and NY Attack 15U Coach is finishing up her last season with Sage Volleyball.  On Tuesday 10/29 at 7pm, they have their "Dig Pink" match against Oneonta. This will be held at the Albany campus gym (Kahl Campus Center).  And, on Saturday 11/2 at 12pm, they have their "Senior Day"... Coach Cooney is the ONLY Senior.   They play Purchase at 1pm.  If you are free for these events, I’m sure she would appreciate your support!

Thanks for all of your support this season!
