There was a positive current of electricity in the air in the East Greenwich gym Friday evening’s Girls Volleyball non league game against Portsmouth. The Avengers – with a new coach and new and returning players – looked strong, with a 3-0 win over the Patriots (27-25, 25-12, 25-20).

Samantha (Sam) Paquette is the new varsity coach, with assistant coach Chris Ford (also new). The JV coach is returning Shelley Grambley.

The Avengers play Cranston East on Wednesday (9/7).

There was a definite charge in the air. I was told by Adam Scott that this years turnout for both the JV and varsity was the largest ever. I am looking forward to pressing the shutter this year.
