Panthers Volleyball beat Millis last night 3-1, (18-25, 25-19, 25-17, 25-21), following a week of one win over Bellingham and one loss to Ashland, bringing their season to 2-1.  By the end of the fourth game Co-captain and setter Maddie Hammond (#13) had five kills, five aces, and eight assists.  Libero and co-captain Heather Leger (#10) had five aces and thirteen digs. Setter Shannon Regan (#14) delivered five aces.

With renewed determination to pick up the pace from last year's disappointing 4-12 ranking, Panthers Volleyball is off to a fresh start this fall with new head coach Brian Lehtinen. The team has been working hard and, only a few weeks into practice, the results are already showing with more aces, better placed offense, and tighter action. Last week, the team started strong with a decisive win against Bellingham 3-0, and a humbling loss to Ashland bringing their season to date to 2-1.

Holliston's varsity roster this year includes seniors Bailey Dupont (LS/RS), Maddie Hammond (RS/S), and Heather Leger (LS/L), co-captains; juniors Beth Cronin (DS), Samantha Devens (LS), Brooke Iarussi (LS), Madison Porter (MH/S), Shannon Regan (S/RS), Julia Sirriani (MH), Kristina Silvestro (S/MH), and Jessica Williams (LS/MH/S); sophomores Julia Dykema (RS/S) and Maggie McCallum (LS); and freshman Lara Cunningham (MH).
