Many SMASH Volleyball Club athletes were recognized this fall for outstanding high school seasons, including the Boston Globe's Player of the Year and All-Scholastic selections, multiple league/conference Most Valuable Players, and dozens of league/conference All-Stars.
Congratulations to SMASH 18s' Riley James, who garnered her second Globe Division 1 Player of the Year award!
Seven other current SMASH players (plus seven former ones) received Globe All-Scholastic recognition, including SMASH 18s' Gabrielle Bailey, Christina Conforti, Abigail Rae, Chelsea Simmons, and Ashley Wang, plus Kaleigh Fitzgerald (SMASH 17s) and Aleksandra Qose (SMASH 18s Blizzard).
36 current SMASH players (from just seven travel teams!) are league All-Stars in the Globe's coverage area, with 19 additional former SMASH players receiving All-Star nods from their conferences.
MVPs of the Tri-Valley, EIL, ISL, Patriot, Middlesex, Merrimack Valley, Hockomock, and Dual County leagues are current or former SMASH players.
Congratulations to all these student athletes for their impressive hard work, dedication, and accomplishments!
