Girls Volleyball Team Catches Alumni Game

The high school’s girls varsity volleyball team recently traveled to Farmingdale State College to watch two alumni play, Alyssa Barbara of Mount Saint Mary College and Kate Flamio of Farmingdale.

The East Islip players were given a tour of the Farmingdale athletic facility and had the opportunity to ask questions about college majors, player recruitment and college life. They then watched their former Lady Redmen captains go head to head in an exciting match that ended with a 3-0 Farmingdale victory over Mount Saint Mary.

“It was a pleasure to take our current team to watch these two former EI players,” said coach Romina Ackley.  “It is beyond rewarding as a coach to watch players you’ve had for so long grow into strong, intelligent, young women that continue their passion academically while also playing volleyball. I look forward to watching future players follow in Kate’s and Alyssa’s footsteps.”
