The Fall River Girls Volleyball Team has been dealing with plenty of uncertainty during this most unique high school season. The Pirates have just one senior in their roster, and started the season off at 4-0 before COVID-19 issues and injuries hit. They still have three girls out as they work through the final week of the regular season. Pirates head coach Laura Trautmann tells DailyDodge.com that because of COVID-19 issues and injury her lineup has been changing day to day all season long. As a team the Pirates returned to the court after a two-week coronavirus break on Tuesday.
“They (her team) are having a good attitude about it. We are just taking it day by day, because every day something happens, but we are fortunate that we are still playing, so I’m happy about that.” Trautmann says “That have actually adapted pretty darn well, probably better than some adults, but I’ve been pleased.”
If the Pirates are going to make a postseason run, Trautmann says that her team needs to get healthy and then focus on better ball control and passing.
Fall River/Rio will travel to Watertown Luther Prep on Thursday night, then host Cambria-Friesland on Saturday before starting tournament play next week.
