Abigail is a senior at Narragansett High School. She ranks 5th (113) in her class with a 5.22 GPA. She is member of the National Honor Society, World Language Society, Historian Committee and Yearbook Club.

She is averaging 6 kills, 2 aces, 5 digs & 2 blocks per game.

Nick is the senior captain and #1 runner on the Woonsocket cross country team. He earned second-team All-State honors in the high jump at the State Track Meet last June. He's also an All-Division 4X400 relay honoree in both indoor and outdoor track & field. Nick is an officer in the school's JROTC unit and a top honor student.
