Twenty teams took part in the CIAC Early Season Block Party in Woodbridge on Saturday.
It’s an all-day volleyball scrimmage that gives players and coaches a chance to check out some of their potential postseason competition.
“Everybody kind of comes out and even though it’s a scrimmage, it’s like your first regular season game and it’s like your last season game too,” said Seymour High School volleyball coach Cathy Federowicz.
“It’s exciting,” added St. Paul senior setter Alexis Carabetta. “We get to see different levels of competition that we don’t always see in our regular season, so it’s fun.”
Since the matches were scrimmages, they did not count towards state tournament qualification.
