Kristina Nieves is a two-year varsity contributor who:
Has had a tremendous senior season as the leader of the Girls Varsity Volleyball team. Kristina is a premier outside hitter who led the team to a second place finish in the Hackensack tournament, averaging 9 kills, 3 blocks, and 3 aces. In the regular season, Kristina was voted co-captain by her teammates. She has played a critical role in the Lady Bulldogs current season of 8 wins and only 3 losses, which is one of the best season starts in school history. Kristina is currently leading the team in kills (42) and blocks (26). Although a front row player, Kristina also leads the team in digs (44). Our Girls Volleyball team will undoubtedly qualify for County and NJSIAA post season play thanks to her stellar 2015 performance.

Coach Bove remarks, “Jazmine is an outstanding young lady with great energy and leadership abilities.” Due to her efforts, the Lady Bulldogs will compete in the NJSIAA State Team Tennis Tournament against the Lady Bengals of Bloomfield.
