St. Joseph High's girls volleyball team overcame a tough non-conference team, Newtown of the South-West Conference, to earn a 3-1 win in the season opener, at home, on Tuesday. St. Joes overcame a hard-fought setback in the first game to earn a 24-26, 25-20, 25-20, 25-22 win.
It’s just one match, but getting off to a good start is a nice confidence booster for a team, that lost some significant contributors, including All State and All FCIAC outside hitters, to graduation a year ago. “We’re trying to figure some things out on the outside,” coach Jeff Babineau said. “We’ve got some young kids out there with no experience.”
