Mt. Hope’s ability to find a holes in Barrington’s defense was not enough to clinch the match.

VolleyballBarrington High School continued its undefeated run in girls’ volleyball, at the dismay of Mt. Hope who suffered a 3-0 loss on Monday night. Mt. Hope now stands at 1-4.
“We lost a close one to Lincoln and Tiverton,” said coach Warren Rensehauser, regarding the teams earlier games.
Barely one-third way through the schedule, Mr. Rensehauser continues to make adjustments to the girls’ positions and is confident that once they “gel” their performance as a team will match their individual performance.
“We’re alternating (positions), trying to find right mix. There’s no guarantee on the girls’ positions right now,” Mr. Rensehauser said.
Among the team’s veterans are seven seniors and four juniors, including Lauren Ferreira, Rhys Webb and Emma Pattie, the only three who have had any varsity experience.
“They’re showing signs that they’re gelling. It’s a small area and the girls need to know where each of them is going to be during play.”
The Mt. Hope team anticipated a challenge against Barrington, and expect the same on Thursday when they face Cumberland. Both teams are undefeated.
With much of the season’s schedule still ahead, the Huskies have ample time to turn their record around.
“I’m hoping to be in the playoff hunt,” Mr. Rensehauser said.
