Portsmouth Abbey volleyball team remains undefeated

Squad improves record to 13-0 with Saturday’s win over Bancroft


PORTSMOUTH — Another match, another win for the Portsmouth Abbey School varsity girls’ volleyball team.

On Saturday, the Ravens improved their record to 13-0 with an impressive 3-0 victory over visiting Bancroft School.

The Ravens’ powerful serving attack set the tone on Parents Weekend and Bancroft's defense was unable to respond through much of the match. 

The team, a member of the Eastern Independent League (EIL), started the season with a 3-2 win over Winsor School and hasn’t lost yet with only a few remaining regular-season games left on the schedule. The Ravens’ 13 wins include six shutouts thus far.

The squad began as a club team during the 2017-18 season, and due to its popularity became a varsity sport the very next season. During its second season, the team came just win shy from the New England tournament. The squad also won the Sportsmanship Award out of the 16 teams in its class.

John Huynh is the head coach, assisted by Jessica De Gree. This year’s captains are seniors Gwen Bragan and Marisa Scartozzi.
