"Meghan's terrific freshman season is continuing," Head Coach Byram said. "In the finals she came up big for us helping lead the team to our first CCC Championship."
Sara Moore was been named to the CCC 1st team All-conference for the first time in her career. The Guilford, CT native helped the Gulls go undefeated in the CCC, winning all nine games and was named Player of the Week three times. "I am proud of how far Sara has come in the past 2 seasons," Head Coach Byram said. "She is one of the hardest workers in our program and I am sure she will continue to improve."
Killeen Ross was named to the CCC 2nd team in recognition of her terrific season. During the season, Ross was recognized as an honorable mention on two different occasions for Player of the Week. "Killeen did an awesome job for us all season," Head Coach Byram said. "As a first year captain she has done a great job learning to balance improving her skills while also helping to keep her teammates focused."
Morgan Tranquist achieved her first All-Conference Honors being named to the CCC 2nd Team, while also being named the conference Senior Scholar-Athlete of the Year. During the season, Tranquist was recognized as an honorable mention for Player of the Week. "Morgan has been one of our most versatile players this season and throughout her career," Head Coach Byram said. "Her presence at the net and serving were strengths for us all season."
Head Coach Tim Byram was named CCC Coach of the Year for the first time in his five-year tenure. Coach Byram led the Gulls to a perfect 9-0 season in the CCC and a 29-7 overall record, en route to capturing the first Conference Championship in the programs' history. As a result of their Championship victory, the Gulls earned an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament, a first for the program. "I am proud to receive the honor but I certainly did not do it alone," Byram said. "Alyssa Carter has done a terrific job for us this season in her first year as an assistant coach. The team really took to her immediately."
The volleyball team would again like to thank all of their parents, friends and the entire Endicott Community for all of the support they showed us this season. The players and coaches alike appreciated the atmosphere they helped create throughout the regular season and how it grew through our first CCC Championship Game.
