The Lady Spartans Volleyball team has been amazing since the beginning of the season, with only a handful of losses, they worked their way up to the Class LL State Semifinal in Fairfield on Wednesday night and shut out the No. 3 seed Westhill High team.

Both teams played their hearts out, but No.10 seed Amity was just that much better this time around, stunning their opponents with three wins (26-24, 25-23 and 25-20).

Even though the Lady Spartans won 3-0, it was no walk in the park. Every game was a nail-biter for players and fans alike.

In Game 1, Amity led by 3 to 4 points for most of the game but Westhill used its skills to tie them at 23-23 and 24-24. Then Amity kicked it into high gear to win 26-24.

In Game 2, Westhill made us sweat with massive leads of 8 to 10 points, but when they got to 21-18 Amity forged ahead to win 25-23.

In Game 3, Both teams played their “A” game but Amity pulled off a 25-20 win to advance to the state final against No.12 seed Darien at East Haven High School on Saturday at 10 a.m.

This is the second consecutive title game for Amity, which lost to Greenwich in 2017.

I would love to see Senior Captain Abby Harbinson celebrate a State Championship Title for everything she’s given to the team during her high school career.
