After being knocked out of both the FCIAC and state playoffs by Fairfield Ludlowe last year, the Staples girls volleyball team is out for an impressive postseason run and a little payback.
"If you don't have the goal of an FCIAC and state title, you're not doing your job. You have to press that on the girls and really go for it. If you don't vie for championships, you won't win championships," Staples coach Jon Shepro said. "Ludlowe is the closest school , so it's always a bitter matchup in any sport, but there's definitely a feeling of revenge because of last year."
