New Britain High School senior Davin Siharath committed to play volleyball for the Rivier University Raiders.

NEW BRITAIN — “He’s an outstanding young man and player,” said New Britain boys volleyball coach Michelle Abraham of senior captain Davin Siharath. “He’s the greatest leader I’ve ever had.”

Abraham described Siharath as one of the forefathers of the boys volleyball program in New Britain. In just their fifth season as a program, Siharath has helped build the program to one of the best in Class L. The Golden Hurricanes have improved from a four-win team in Siharath’s first season, to 13 wins a season ago and are well on their way to surpassing that mark in 2023.
