Rams Girls' Volleyball Picks Up Eighth Consecutive Win On The Road

On Thursday, Cheshire High School girls’ volleyball (16-2) extended their win streak to eight matches, posting a 3-0 victory (25-18, 25-14, 26-24) at Daniel Hand (5-12) in Madison. CHS swept the regular-season series.

After winning the first set, the service of senior Alex Lucas allowed the Rams to gain separation in game two. Sophomore Eva Catalanotto clinched the frame with a kill.

Hand threatened in the third set, building a 22-14 advantage, however senior tri-captain Avery Mola served on an 8-0 run to tie the game.

Hand won the next two points to go up 24-22, but CHS claimed the last four points to end the match. Cheshire erased Hand’s game points with kills by Catalanotto and senior Kat Ulicki.

Mola compiled 14 kills, a block, and a dig. Senior setter Mimi Perlini tallied 22 assists, five digs, and an ace.
