With fall tournament play rapidly approaching, the Canfield High School's girls soccer, volleyball and tennis teams remain undefeated in conference play.

When asked about the success of the girls, Canfield Athletic Director Greg Cooper said, ''We have a bunch of great girls in solid programs.''

He attributed much of the success to the work ethic and attitude of the students, the support of caring and dedicated parents, and a staff of knowledgeable and determined coaches.

Canfield girls volleyball captains Rachel Rafoth and Janie Rafoth are proud to be carrying a 13-1 record for the season. The team is undefeated in the AAC.

The Canfield girls soccer team recently received a second place ranking statewide in Division II by the Ohio Scholastic Coaches Association. The girls currently have an 8 and 2 record and are working hard each week to maintain their winning record.

Senior captain Sydney Miller said, ''We've really started to click as a group and have a great shot of making it.''

''We are coming out strong this season after being knocked out in last year's regional finals,'' added senior captain Bailey Fischer.

The team's third senior captain, Sophia Mancini, echoed the sentiments of her co-captains, adding gratitude for the support of the dedicated parents.

Collectively, the girls cite attitude and ''believing'' as the key ingredients to the success they have experienced so far this season. The team has five games remaining, three of which are AAC opponents.

The girls volleyball team boasts a 13-1 record and is also undefeated in the All-American Conference.

''We have a great coach and many returning players,'' said senior captain Janie Rafoth.

Her twin sister and senior captain, Rachel Rafoth, added, ''We are looking forward to tournament play, and we hope that our hard work will carry us far into the post season.''

Head coach Maria Householder is extremely proud of the players, the senior leadership this season and the level of ''class'' that her team brings to the court.

She, along with her players, is eager to begin post season play. The team is set for two weeks of road play before finishing the regular season at home against conference rivals Fitch and Howland.

With a 17-1 record, and no losses in conference play, the girls tennis team also is poised for success in post season play.

''We are a young team, but we have really bonded and we play well together,'' said senior captain Bri Slemons.

Her enthusiasm is shared by senior captains Maria Sturgeon and Emily Ellis.

The girls wrap up their regular season in conference play against Fitch, Poland and Lakeview.
