BOHEMIA—Connetquot High School girls volleyball ended the 2017 season undefeated, having won their league, Suffolk County, Long Island and New York State championships.  After the T-Birds’ Sept. 7 home win against Walt Whitman in three sets, Connetquot begins the new season with two-straight wins.    

 Connetquot’s Gabriella Carere had six kills and Lauren Konzen had eight digs to lead the T-Birds in their League II win.  Connetquot’s record is 2-0 while Whitman stands at 1-1.

Coach Justin Hertz and assistants Katie Baker and Karen Edwards, return eight veterans from last year’s New York State Championship team, but welcome eight newcomers including eighth-grader Lauren Konzen.
