Captains for 2022–23: Sophia Bay ‘23, Kyra Minda Chiriboga ‘23, and Alicia Guo ‘24
Groton volleyball began as a Faculty-Sponsored Activity (FSA), then became a club team. Interest was so strong that the volleyball squad morphed into an interscholastic JV team. When the JV team lost only one game, Groton was ready for varsity-level play!
Volleyball at Groton balances working hard and building skills with having fun. Team members are selected for their skill, attitude, and commitment to team play. In 2019, our last competitive season, Groton volleyball shared both the ISL Award ( with Brooks) and the NEPSAC Sportsmanship Award ( with Middlesex) .
Groton’s varsity volleyball team practices four days a week and competes on Wednesdays and Saturdays. For more information, feel free to contact Coach John Antonetti.
Coach Antonetti joins Groton with several years of coaching experience. He has coached volleyball at Leominster High School and softball, basketball, and volleyball at Nashoba Tech, appearing seven consecutive times in the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association State Tournament for volleyball with three different teams. He also led two Nashoba Tech Hall of Fame teams to consecutive Colonial League Championships. His boys volleyball team at Leominster earned the Midland Wachusett Leagues’ Sportsmanship Award in two out of the three seasons he’s coached.
Mr. Antonetti is the lead instructor for the Honors Electronics program at the Center for Technical Education Innovation at Leominster High School. In his spare time, he and his wife enjoy family time with their four daughters and eight grandchildren. He is a passionate Patriots, Celtics, Bruins, and New York Mets fan.
