Senior Night

With the successful win it was an emotional night for the four graduating seniors. The seniors on the Colonia Varsity team include Camila Camacho- Teneiro (9) , Dakota Dacunha (10), Kelli Mulrooney (5), and Jordyn Pagnozzi (17). Before the game started head coach, Coach Hennessy, announced the senior’s and gave them each flowers. The gym was decorated with balloons, streamers, and poster’s made by fellow teammates.

Camacho-Teneiro tore her ACL in her left knee during a volleyball game against Old Tappan and is out for the rest of the season. However, Camacho- Teneiro had a very impressive high school volleyball career being an outside hitter. Camacho- Teneiro had 337 kills and 439 digs throughout her high school career on varsity.

Throughout Dacunha’s high school career she had a total of 45 kills and 12 digs so far. Dacunha is right side hitter for the team.

Pagnozzi’s high school career consists of a total of 31 digs and 128 service points. Since she has played volleyball throughout high school, Pagnozzi got emotional when asked what she would miss the most about her team. She stated, ” Probably the camaraderie of it all. Being with my friends all the time. I’ve made really good friends. It’s going to be weird not being with my friends everyday. Definitely going to miss Coach too.” 

During Mulrooney’s high school career on varsity she had a total of 88 digs and 79 service points so far.  Mulrooney has played volleyball all four years of high school. When asked if she has any advice for volleyball players inspiring to be on varsity she stated, “Just try to standout, that’s Coach Hennessy biggest request. Always keep hustling and put a smile on your face.”

The Colonia Girls’ produced 12-0 in-conference season. Their overall record is 17-3 as they head into the GMC’s and state competition.

When asked what Mulrooney’s overall thoughts on the season she responded, ” We are 19th in the state, so it’s a big accomplishment for me as a senior. Overall, it’s a good way to end my high school career.”
