It’s been an exciting opening athletic season for Kenwood Sports this fall. Here are some top highlights from the gym to out on the field of Bluebird nation.

Near-Perfect Volleyball Heads to Playoffs

The varsity girls’ volleyball team is headed to the playoffs after a near-perfect regular season.

The Bluebirds boast a 14-1 record, a hot streak that has kept members of the Kenwood community on the edge of their seats. The team’s only loss came during the final game of the season when the Bluebirds took on Owings Mills.

Coach Ronda Shelley said the players’ willingness to listen and learn is one of the main reasons for their success.

“They want to win more than any team I have coached. They’re tenacious and have a lot of heart,” she said.

Junior Taylor Taormino, a varsity player, said the team has benefited from three seasons in which a core group of athletes have been on the court together as junior varsity, and now varsity, players. Their relationships and communication have improved over the years, bringing them to where they are now, Taormino said.

“This year was like a whole different team that came on the court,” she said.

The team’s playoff season starts the week of Nov. 5.
