IMG_8719The Amity Lady Spartans Volleyball team, under the leadership of their amazing second year coach Seth Davis gave fans an incredible season.

They won the SCC Girls Volleyball Championship Title and produced the Coach of the Year – Davis, Player of the Year – Micaela Cardozo and two SCC All Conference Athletes – Cardozo and Katie Helfenbein.

Watching them play was always an adventure and seeing Katie Helfenbein’s smile during every game was a pleasure.

The girls went up against another powerhouse team tonight, but Greenwich simply outplayed our wonderful Lady Spartans in the quarter final of the CIAC State Competition.

Greenwich won the first and second matches, Amity the third, then Greenwich earned the 3-1 victory in the fourth match.

Sad to say that tonight was the end of the line for the 2015 team, but win or lose we love our Lady Spartans, and we are so proud of everything they’ve accomplished this year.

Thank You for a great season!

The Southern Connecticut Conference (SCC) had some exciting news for the Amity Girls Volleyball program that was shared with fans after the big game in Woodbridge Monday night.

Seniors Micaela Cardozo (20) and Katie Helfenbein (29) made All Conference.

Micaela has been named SCC Conference Player of the Year.

During the post game announcements, the ever-smiling Helfenbein did her best Carol Merrill for her teammate. [If you don’t get the reference, you’re not old enough]

Coach Seth Davis has worked with the girls for two seasons since former coach Paul Theis retired.

“It has been such a great pleasure coaching two girls that continually work as hard as they do to improve everyday,” Davis said. “They both do great things to help this team succeed and play well.”

While his entire team was applauding their teammates’ accomplishments, Debbie Davis included that Seth (yes, he is her son) has been named SCC Coach of the Year.

It was a great night for the lady spartans and their coach. Congratulations to all of you. You all certainly deserve our applause.
