Going into the season, the Shelton High girls volleyball team had a goal of reaching the state tournament after missing out on the postseason last year. The Gaelettes improved to 3-0 on the season, as they stormed past Career High from New Haven on Thursday by margins of 25-16, 25-5 and 25-9.
The last time Shelton started out 3-0 on the season was in 2013 when they finished 13-6 and qualified for the states. The Gaelettes got a bit of a wake up call on Tuesday against Hamden High. After dropping its first set of the season 27-25, they came back to win game four by a slim 25-23 margin.
