This year, the teams’ accomplishments included SCC Championship, Player of the year, Coach of the year, and LL semi-finalists.
On Wednesday, Nov. 16, Amity took on Stamford in the CIAC State Semifinal at Trumbull High School taking their second loss of the year 3-0.
Stamford went on to win the state title against Ridgefield 3-1.
Amity will lose three amazing players to graduation — Kathleen Walsh, Jessica Ferraiolo, and Taylor DeRienzo,
Luckily, we will still have Abby, Dani, Jaiden, Brooke, Amelia, and a lot of other talent coming back in 2017. Who, under the guidance of Coach Davis and the rest of the coaching staff, Amity should be in great shape again.

As most of you know, Seth Davis’s team only lost ONE match all season, proving time and time again that with the right coach and a team full of talented players you can really go places.
Amity is amazing and gave fans and themselves a season to remember.
But all good things must come to an end, and the semi final was the end of the road for our girls.
Athletic Director Ernie Goodwin said it well with his Tweet after tonight’s games. “So proud of our volleyball team for an outstanding season! SCC Champs, Player of the year, Coach of the year, and LL semi-finalists!”
Notes: Kathleen Walsh had 14 kills, Abby Harbinson had 9 kills, Jessica Ferraiolo had 6 kills, Jaiden Williams had 30 assists, and Dani Nordyk added 11 digs.
Congratulations to Stamford on their 3-0 win —25-16, 25-20, 25-22 — you defeated one hell of an awesome team. Good luck in the championship game this weekend.
Kathleen, Abby, Dani, Jess, Jaiden, Brooke, Taylor, Amelia, and all the players and Coach Davis, we are all so proud of you, and thank you for sharing your talent with us this year.

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!
As we continue to celebrate the amazing end to the Amity Girls Volleyball season, we thought it would be nice to offer some photos of the girls in action and a couple of videos commemorating this milestone event.
Sheila McCreven took this wonderful VIDEO of the SCC Championship Events.
HERE is a video of the Awards presentation.
And Now, for the photos… We are so proud of you girls, and Coach Davis. Thank you for a memorable year!
