Volleyball Wins 11th EIL Championship
Senior Tri-captains undefeated On Saturday, February 27, Bancroft's girls Varsity Volleyball captured
their 11th straight EIL Pool A Championship with a victory over
Governor's Academy. As Coach Gary Patch and the team say good-bye to
eight senior players, it is a bittersweet day for the three senior
captains who have been on the team since freshman year.
Seniors Megan A., Gabrielle T., and Clara Z., have been playing together on Bancroft Volleyball teams since sixth grade, and attribute both their fundamental skills and their love of the game to the foundation created by their MS Coach Russ Enlow. "He really loved the game and made it so much fun to play," says Clara.
The girls are modest in talking about their achievements. All three are premiere players in both the EIL and in Club Leagues and were all recruited to play volleyball in college. Meg and Clara will play in Division 3 teams for Middlebury and Trinity respectively, and Gabby opted to go to Division I University of Pennsylvania and hopes to make the team as a walk-on.
As a team, Bancroft's Varsity Volleyball has an amazing record of 145 consecutive wins—setting another new state high school record. "It's about the love of the game, not the winning." Surprising words from the three who have never lost a match but they are very sincere when they talk about their team. It is the sense of team that has contributed to their success and it's the people and the team traditions the girls will miss the most—the matching hair ribbons (started by a former teammate, and continued by Meg who hopes another teammate will continue it), Tacky Tuesdays, and their "Ace" cheers, just to name a few. Although they are sad to see the season end, they are excited about moving on to college, playing with a new team, and learning new traditions.
What advice do they offer to their teammates for next year? Gabby and Clara agree that Meg says it best, "Don't worry about the record and the pressure of winning. Just play the best you can and play because you love to play."
