Season Recap: Boys Club Volleyball

For the first time in school history, ISI offered Boys Club Volleyball to high school students, all thanks to a student-led initiative to get the team off the ground. Players spent the season building skills, learning positions, and developing strategies behind playing each ball. 

“Perhaps the biggest challenge was our own nerves,” Athletic Director Joel O’Neil said. “We had never played any of the teams we faced before and we wanted to do well, but our nerves would get the best of us. Our serves would be off and at times had a hard time returning a few. It would take a few serves before we would settle down and play with more confidence.”

As the season progressed, players improved and got more comfortable with their own skills and working together as a team. The season finished with an exciting final home game, with a gym full of fans and a close five set match ending in a Gryphon victory. 

“My favorite memory from the season was winning the first Boys Volleyball home game in front of a packed and noisy crowd,” sophomore Kael Miller said. “I am playing again next year with the goal of making the team an ISI staple.”

The Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study designed for students in their final two years of high school. It is a broad-based, two-year course that aims to prepare students for university by encouraging students to be knowledgeable and inquiring but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.

The Extended Essay is an opportunity for students to gain experience with the independent research and writing skills expected at university. Students investigate a topic they personally care about from class and create a 4,000-word piece of independent research over the course of a year.
