The Narragansett High School volleyball team has rebounded from its first rough patch.

After a 7-0 start, the Mariners ran into a tougher portion of their schedule and lost three straight matches to Block Island, St. Raphael and Rogers. They took a game from both Block Island and St. Raphael before getting swept by the Vikings.

On Monday, Narragansett snapped the slide with a sweep of Hope and moved to 8 -3 on the year. Even with the loss, the Mariners remain one of the top teams in Division III, sitting right behind first-place St. Raphael in D-III-A. Central leads D-III-B with an 11-2 record.

Narragansett has several tough ones ahead, including rematches with St. Raphael and Block Island and its first and only meeting with Central.
