MONTROSE, N.Y. -- The Sailors of Hendrick Hudson High have built a girls volleyball program that produces quality teams year after year, and this fall is no different.

Longtime coach Diane Swertfager, entering her 31st year with the program and 28th with the varsity team, guided the Sailors to a Section 1 Class B championship last fall before the team lost in the regional finals.

The Sailors - with 13 sectional titles and three state crowns in their resume - will play in Class A this season.

Swertfager, a Katonah resident who has 529 career wins, has no intention of slowing down, and believes this year's team has the potential to get back to the top.

Check out the video to see Daily Voice talk to Swertfager and team captain Kirstin Loh about the team and the young season.
