(Oct. 20, 2017) The Worcester Prep volleyball team wrapped up regular-season competition with a victory over the Chesapeake Christian Crusaders last Friday in Berlin.

Because it was the Lady Mallards’ final home match of the season, the nine seniors were recognized following play.

“I think the girls had fun with their senior game,” Prep Coach Keith Donoway said. “All the seniors got to play and Caroline [Pasquariello] got to play as a hitter for game two. She’s normally our libero [defensive specialist]. It was a great way to end our regular season.”

Worcester won the first and second games, 25-14. Chesapeake edged out the home team, 25-20, in the third. The Mallards came out strong in the fourth game and earned a 25-4 victory.

Senior Stevie Eppard-Annis had 13 aces. Senior Sophia Bandorick chipped in with five kills. Pasquariello, a team captain, tallied four kills.

Seniors Deborah Marini, Ally March, Eliza Chaufournier and Camryn Sofronski, a team captain, contributed with three kills each.

Donoway said seniors Isabella Osais and Leigh Menendez “helped defensively with great passing.”

Not only was it Senior Night, but it was also the Mallards’ “Dig Pink” match. The girls, wearing pink T-shirts during the competition, were raising money for the Side-Out Foundation, which funds research for treating and finding a cure for breast cancer. About $475 was raised for the organization through a bake sale and donations collected during the event.
