Glastonbury Volleyball Preparing For Playoffs

After a disappointing 3-0 loss to Farmington, on Oct. 23, Glastonbury High School girls' volleyball team is still optimistic about the upcoming postseason, but knows there is still work to be done.

Coach Matt Warner said that Farmington did an excellent job on defense, which may have thrown off his team's offense, but that his team can work on fixing its own defense while working past those moments of offensive struggles.

"Part of it, for us, is thinking on our defensive end about the block, and how to make that more effective. We weren't at all consistent on trying to get touches on it," he said. "It's also being more mindful as hitters, to see opportunities, and know, based on the defense we're seeing, what spots are there and what spots are not, and executing."

Doing that, he said, will help Glastonbury maintain the offensive advantage going into whatever the attack may be.

Glastonbury (13-4, at press time) was preparing to close out the season with matches against Bristol Eastern and Mercy (Middletown), while awaiting its seedings in the CCC and Class LL tournaments.
