Volleyball - Girls' Varsity

The Girls’ Volleyball program at Wilbraham & Monson Academy has enjoyed success on several levels over the past few years. One recent highlight for the program is the recognition of the Class B schools by the New England Prep School Fall Girls Volleyball Association (NEPSFGVA).

There are currently 27 schools in the Class B Division. As a result of the restructuring, the Titans are eligible to participate in both the postseason tournament and the all-league All-Star tournament.
