The men’s volleyball team at Baruch College has won the CUNYAC championship in each of the last five years. This year they are ranked fifth in the nation (Division III) and appear to be headed to another very successful run toward season’s end. One reason for this success, specifically over the last three years, is middle blocker and tri-captain Steven Coniglio.
Coniglio, a 6’ 5” senior from Old Bethpage, NY, has been making his presence known on the team since his freshman season in 2011 when, during a game against NYU he had 14 kills and a .500 hitting percentage. He recalled the game during a recent interview at the school’s athletic center, saying, “It was just one of those things where the very first play of the game set the tone. From there I was just in a rhythm and I never got out of it.”
