Despite moving up a conference this season, the Island Trees girls volleyball team is still playing competitive volleyball.
The Lady Dawgs are 4-5 so far this season in conference BC-I after finishing an impressive 14-1 last year in BC-II.
The girls last win came against East Rockaway on September 25. In that win, the girls were led by Lauren Ecock, who had 15 kills and one block, and Sam Petry, who had 39 assists and two aces.
The Lady Dawgs next game is on Thursday, 4:30 p.m. at Clarke High School.
"The teams are more competitive but the Lady Dawgs are up for any challenge," said Lynn Collins, Island Trees Athletics. "The team is young but very seasoned and will make an impressive run in the playoffs."
