Volleyball Team Succeeding with New Squad

Coach Cogley and Coach Nelsen are so proud of how hard our volleyball team has worked and the improvements that have been made this season.

We started out the season with barely getting the ball over the net and we are now consistently setting it up for three hits.Our record is 3-2 and all our matches have been hard fought.

Our numbers are impressive on the volleyball team, we consistently have 20+ members at training each morning. With a limited number of matches and a mini van that only allows for 12 students, we need to select rosters for each match. We have put our team captains in charge of selecting and distributing the roster to our players.

We use a rotational basis of our older players and rotating in our years 8/9. The preference of spots goes to years 10-13 and our younger players will fill in the gaps. If we could have two teams we would, but our scheduling and transport system do not allow for this to happen.

We appreciate the dedication of all of our players, especially the younger players as they build and strengthen their skills to eventually become varsity players. 

As always, thanks to our parents' support in dropping the players off early in the morning and collecting them in the evenings. Without parents this couldn’t be possible. 

Our final game of the season will be  November 4 at St. James. It will be a tournament game for the league trophy. If you would like to attend we would love to see you! More details to follow after half term.
