The Greenwich High School girls volleyball team won its third consecutive match on Friday, defeating Norwalk, 3-0, in an FCIAC match held at Eastern Middle School.
With the win, Greenwich raised its record to 7-4 on the season. Junior Carolina Lew recorded five aces and 17 service points, while senior Tara Ford had 18 kills to pace the Cardinals.
“We got off to a good start and we were snapping the ball down pretty well,” GHS coach Steve Lapham said. “Overall, our passing and hitting were pretty effective.”
Senior Erika Hauschild had eight kills and 10 service points, while senior setter Nicole Wood contributed four aces, 13 service points and 32 assists in the winning effort.
Ellie McCabe (five assists, five service points, two digs), Katie Sciglimpaglia (13 digs, seven service points) and Naeva Rene (two digs, three kills, two blocks) led Norwalk (3-8).
Attending the game were Ben Chisholm and his mother Becky Ranta. Chisholm, a 2-year-old, has Acute Flaccid Myelitis — a disease that effects the nervous system — especially the gray matter of the spinal cord. Ranta played volleyball, basketball and softball while she was a student at Greenwich High School.
The Cardinals have dedicated their season to Chisholm and have worked to raise awareness for Acute Flaccid Myelitis.
Up next for Greenwich is a match against Trumbull on Wednesday at Eastern Middle School.
