Season Recap: Grade 5 & 6 Volleyball
For the first time in three years, Grade 5 students participated in school athletics again with the easing of COVID restrictions. As a result, the entire Grade 5 and 6 volleyball team was made up of entirely new athletes.
“With so many new players, practices focused on building on the basics, like learning to serve, and getting comfortable communicating on the court,” Coach Linda Weiss said. “The girls showed great improvement throughout the season, and had a few key wins against tough opponents.”
The team started the season with a win and continued to build on the momentum throughout the season, motivating each other to improve.
“My favorite memory of the season was when we won our first game,” Grade 6 player Vanessa Vogel said. “Not because we won, but I loved to see the happy faces of my teammates and being able to cheer and scream and just be happy with them.”
The team looks to continue improving next year, and with the help of returning players, it will allow new students to be introduced to Upper School athletics each year.
