The 2014 Hopkinton Hillers Volleyball team won the Division 2 State Championship for the first time ever in the programs history. The team finished the season with 19 sweeps, a 22 and 2 record and swept Weston in the Division 2 State Championship to win the ultimate prize.

At one point in the 2nd match the Hillers were down 20-13 but won 11 of the next 12 points to take the 24-21 lead and took any momentum away from Weston.

Holly Adams led the attack with 15 Kills, Whitney Thalheimer contributed with 8 Kills, Hanna Engstrom also racked up 7 Kills. Engstrom was also a threat from the service line with 3 aces. After the game Engstrom talked about the teams effort: "We get better every day we work our hardest and I think we deserve this, we work so hard everyday."
