After an electrifying win in the semifinal against Ludlowe, Trumbull Girls Volleyball competed in the FCIAC championship on Saturday, November 3rd. The girls had an impressive performance with a sweeping 3-0 victory against the 1 seeded Westhill Vikings.

A nail-biting semifinal game preceded the championship win on Thursday, November 1st. The Eagles eventually came out on top in 5 (25-15, 23-25, 25-21, 21-25, 15-10), which energized them for their big game the following Saturday.

“We knew Ludlowe would be a tough game, especially since the neutral location happened to be their gym,” says Captain and Libero Rachel Hage (‘19). Despite the obvious disadvantage on opposing turf, the Eagles were able to hang on for a crucial win in the 5th set. “Once we won that energy and drive to win, it helped carry us into Saturday’s game, allowing us to sweep Westhill.”

Trumbull’s lively fan section is not to be forgotten. The student section came up with a variety of creative chants to cheer on the team, including “She’s Not Human,” referring to Krystina Schueler (‘19) and her spectacular kills during the game. The more generic chants included “You’re Still Losing,” “Start The Busses,” and “Let’s Go Trumbull.”

“Winning the FCIAC championship felt so surreal. It was what we’d been working for all season and I’m so happy we were able to reach our goal. The countless hours spent practicing and preparing finally paid off. I’m so proud of the team and our achievements,” says Julia Roberto (‘19).

The Trumbull Girls Volleyball team made history with Trumbull’s first Varsity Girls Volleyball FCIAC title.
