Carmel Catholic's girls volleyball team and seniors Caitlin Barry, Mary Paterkiewicz, Maura Zawaski and Lynn Zemaitis had themselves a particularly memorable night Thursday.

"It was great to get a win on senior night," Carmel coach David Pazely said. "Our four seniors played very well. We were a bit inconsistent throughout the match but pulled it together in Game 3 for a dramatic comeback victory. Hopefully this energy will inspire the team as we enter the playoffs."
