Prep volleyball: ‘Peaking at the right time’

Bear River’s girls volleyball claimed the Pioneer Valley League championship Wednesday after topping Lindhurst at home. The Bruins went 10-0 in league play to claim their first PVL banner since 2015.

Like most teams, Bear River girls volleyball faced its fair share of adversity this season. But, with a keen ability to adapt, strong team cohesion and unrelenting perseverance, the Bruins rose above the obstacles and claimed the 2021 Pioneer Valley League championship.

“It’s been a relatively trying year, especially early on with the COVID challenges we had, playing with masks and some of those things, but they are pretty resilient and it’s been cool to see their growth, and their commitment,” said Bear River head coach Matt MacDonald.
