#5 – Faith Thurmond caps a dominant performance as Seymour wins first girls volleyball title
Torrington won the two meetings against Seymour during the season before the two teams met for a third time in the Class M girls volleyball final. This time was different. This time, there was just too much Faith Thurmond. Though she certainly wasn’t the only reason Seymour earned the win, her 19 kills and three blocks played a key role, particularly securing crucial points late in the sets. Then she put her last stamp on the match with this final authoritative kill, giving the Wildcats the program’s first state title.
