King Philip defeats Attleboro in three sets 25-16, 25-21 and 25-16.
Not only was it the last regular match of the season prior to the beginning of the Hockomock League Championships, it was also senior night in Wrentham. The King Philip volleyball team was not about to let a one-win Attleboro team come into their gym and walk away with a victory on their special night. The Warriors came out with vengeance and scored the first six points of the first set that eventually led to a three-set win (25-16, 25-21 and 25-16) over the Bombardiers. Despite coming out with the first six points of the evening, it could have been a lot worse for Attleboro. Junior Julie Farabough (six kills and two blocks) was set up time and time again for the kill, but each time, the middle hitter sent the ball sailing too far. “…

Loss snaps Warriors three-game winning streak.
With a loss at the hands of Oliver Ames in four sets, the King Philip volleyball team fell to 5-7 on the year and, with only seven games remaining, the Warriors are still in the hunt for a tournament berth. KP opened the night with a hard-fought 25-20 win, but fell in the next three sets 14-25, 18-25 and 19-25 to hand the victory over to the visiting Tigers. “I thought that we were a much the more balanced team tonight,” Warrior coach Cindy Souza said. “We played better defensively, but unfortunately we made a lot of unforced errors and had some net violations that hurt us. This win was in our reach, we just didn’t execute enough to get it.” Julie Farabaugh lead the team in the loss with seven kills and two blocks, while Miranda Murphy had…

King Philip defeats Holliston, 3-1.
The King Philip volleyball team went into Holliston on a mission — taking it one game at a time to get back to being a .500 team. The Warriors defeated the Panthers on their own court in four sets to take that all-important step in being able to qualify for the state tournament. KP grabbed the first set in convincing style 25-13, but Holliston bounced back with a 25-17 win of their own to even the match. Not wanting the Panthers to take control of the match, the Warriors seized the moment and recaptured the momentum taking the third set 25-13 and held off the home team in the fourth set 25-22 for the victory. Jodi Cullity had seven straight service points, including an ace, in the opening set while digging out 35 balls throughout the …

Warriors defeat Sharon three sets to one for the victory.

The loss dropped Sharon to 2-3. During the first set, the King Philip girls not only had numerous net violations, but they also made many unforced errors. They still came through with the first set win. “We came out really cold in that first set and were slow in starting,” KP Coach Cindy Souza said. “Eventually we turned things around and started to pull it out.” Sharon grabbed the first points of the second set and, after exchanging the next four points, the Eagles ran of seven straight points to take an 11-4 lead…

Hopkinton defeats King Philip in three sets.
Having qualified for the state tournament last year for the first time in the program’s existence, the King Philip girls volleyball squad was looking to improve upon that performance this year. Unfortunately, the Warriors opened the season with a home contest against a tough non-league opponent in Hopkinton and were swept by the Hillers in three sets. “This was not only the first game of the season, but with the hurricane last week, we didn’t get to practice all that much,” KP Coach Cindy Souza said. “We have a lot of returning talent as well as height, and I believe that we will get back to where we were last year.” In the opening set, King Philip looked strong and poised to walk out of the gym with a win as they scored the first three …
