Naugy Notes Oct. 21-27
Naugy has enjoyed the last week off before its final two matches this week. In its last match, Oct. 21 against Sacred Heart, the Greyhounds laid a 7-0 pasting on the Hearts in the borough. Nicole Sambrook knocked in two goals, while Steph Santos accounted for a goal and an assist, and Danielle Charette, Sarah Pohorilak, Rebekah Mitchell and Shannon Bahme also found the back of the net. Sara Tarsi and Tori Pisco tallied assists. The Hounds posted yet another shutout—their ninth of the season and fourth in a row—thanks to the play of Lorena Gullotta and Jessica Johnson in goal. The 13-0 Greyhounds host Derby Thursday on senior night before traveling to Ansonia Friday afternoon. Naugy will be the top seed in the NVL tournament, beginning this weekend.
The Greyhounds notched three straight wins last week to improve to 13-4. After a 3-1 win over Ansonia last Wednesday, Naugy handled Wolcott on Friday, 3-0, before knocking off Torrington, 3-1, Monday. The Hounds had little trouble with the Eagles in a 25-12, 25-19, 25-17 win. Lindsay Witkoski posted a double-double with 21 assists and 10 points, while Skye Stella tallied 11 points, Julia Longo had eight kills, and Jessica Webber notched five kills. Naugatuck experienced a little more difficulty in its 25-21, 25-20, 12-25, 25-15 victory over the Red Raiders. Webber racked up 30 points to pace the Hounds, while Alexis Granahan posted 13 points and six kills, Witkoski gained another double-double with 21 assists and 11 points, and Longo smashed 10 kills. After closing the season at Kennedy Wednesday, Naugy will play in the NVL tournament, starting this weekend.

Naugatuck did not have enough firepower to overcome the league’s strongest team, Torrington, last Friday in the borough, as the Hounds fell, 98-83, to drop to 3-5 on the season. The Greyhounds managed to capture four events on the night. Nicole Javins won the 200 free in two minutes, 11.75 seconds for the Hounds’ first win, while Sarah Konops was victorious in both the 50 free (27.06) and the 100 breast (1:15.44). The 400 free relay team of Javins, Konops, Leah Grabowski, and Samantha Fredericks also posted a win, finishing in 4:13.28. Naugy’s final meet of the regular season is Friday, when it hosts Holy Cross on senior night.
