Farmington Volleyball Awaits Playoffs

The Farmington High School girls' volleyball team improved to 14-2, after a 3-0 sweep of Glastonbury on Oct. 23.

The two teams had met for the first game of the season on Sept. 8, in which Farmington also prevailed, 3-2.

Coach Laura Arena said her team is playing very well after making some adjustments during the season, but there is always room to improve.

"I thought the girls played very well as a unit today," she said. "We saw a lot of teamwork, a lot of consistency, and a lot of positive energy. That's something to build on."

Arena said her squad has reduced errors throughout the season, but can still improve defensive efficiency, as well as being more aggressive, but strategic, on offense.

"You can always get better," she said. "There's never a ceiling on what you can achieve."

Arena said senior captains Caroline Summa and Kelly Swidorsky have lead the team's offense all year, and junior middle hitter Chardae Saunders has also stepped up recently.

On defense, Arena called libero Carolyn Piera a "scrappy little player who is gritty and gets the job done."

Setters junior Natasha Silva and senior Nidhi Patel have solidified their roles. Patel is coming back from injury, but determined.

The Indians close out the season with Fitch and Avon, before awaiting their seeding in the CCC and Class L tournaments.
