Aidan Fleming – Sr., 6′ 4″ Hitter, 23 Kills, 3 Blocks

“Aidan is a strong asset in the front row. He missed most of the 2021 season due to an injury, but when he was present, the offense was stronger. I look forward to see what he can do for us this year.”

Shane Harrington – Sr., 6′ Hitter, 72 Kills, 17 Aces, 16 Blocks

“Shane is a strong right-side hitter. His strength in back row is just as strong as his net play. Shane has grown as a player over the last two years and I cannot wait to see what this season brings for him.”

“Justin is an effective hitter from any position. I will look to utilize him in whatever position gives us the strongest line-up.”

Christopher Mellor – Jr., 6’6″, Hitter, 57 Kills, 55 Blocks

“Chris’ maturity, height and ability will make a difference this season. His understanding of the game has grown and that will help him be more versatile in the front row. Chris led our team in Blocks last season.”

Alejandro Ramirez – Sr. DS, 50 Digs

“Alejandro is a strong back row player and will be utilized in the position that best helps the team.”

Key Newcomers:
Austin Martellucci – Jr., 6’1, Hitter

2022 Outlook: “Most of the starting line-up is back from 2021 and the key newcomers have experience on the varsity court as well. If the boys keep focused and continue to work hard, anything is possible for the 2022 season. Success will be determined by all parts working for a common goal- the concept of TEAM needs to be in the forefront of their thinking.”
