Athlete of the Week — Risa Gelles-Watinck, Girls Volleyball

The Girls Volleyball team has been a roll, winning five matches in a row.  According to head coach, Todd Elwell, “Several athletes have had impressive performances but one key performance has been from the starting Libero, Junior Risa Gelles-Watnick.  She has been a key cornerstone in South’s serve-receive while leading the team on defense with 215 digs. Behind the service line, she has produced 20 aces while serving 88.5% of her serves in the court. Last Monday, South was down to Westford 22-24, and Risa had three straight service points that led to a 28-26 win. Her consistent passing and ability to serve under pressure have set the table for her team to rise to 8-5 on the season.”
