Girls volleyball joins program at CHS

CANTON, Sept. 9 — Canton High’s newest athletic program will make its official debut this fall when the Warriors field a junior varsity girls volleyball program. It joins a crowded field in the fall season that includes field hockey, girls soccer and girls cross country.

Helen Taylor, a Canton resident and former collegiate player at Providence College, will lead the program this fall. A year ago, she ran a volleyball program with the help of the town Park and Recreation Department that attracted 40 girls. Many of the girls played throughout the summer at the Valley Sports Club on Route 44.

Next fall, the team will play at the varsity level. “The girls are very excited and energetic,” Taylor said. “They’ve really improved (since last fall).” The only downside is that Taylor can only take about 15 girls on the junior varsity team. A limited schedule of 13 matches begins Sept. 13.

Gerry deSimas, Jr., is the editor and founder of The Collinsville Press. He is an award-winning writer and has been covering sports in Connecticut and New England for more than 30 years. He was inducted into the New England High School Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2018.
