FARMINGTON - So far six teams have tried to stop the Newington boys volleyball team and so far all six have failed.

Farmington was the latest opponent to fall to the Newington, who earned its sixth straight win after coming out with a 3-1 victory Monday night after getting pushed with set scores of 25-23, 15-25, 25-20 and 25-22.

“Farmington is a much better team than their 1-3 record says,” Newington head coach Curt Burns. “It was a real good battle tonight and they gave us a good test in the new conference alignment.”

Newington certainly got plenty of solid performances along the way.

Leonel Caceres led Newington with 16 kills, while Riley Miller recorded eight. Dan Cloutier had 40 assists and four blocks, Mason Romano came away with five blocks and Collin Leidke finished with 18 digs.

Despite not winning any sets by more than five points, Burns figures this match should benefit his team with another divisional opponent in Conard waiting on Wednesday.
