Coach Laura Ouellette said she is proud of these student-athletes and how they developed throughout the weeks. “They worked hard at every practice, kept a positive attitude, had fun while learning, plus supported each other on the court during matches.”
She wishes them the best of luck when they continue their volleyball futures.
The Beach Middle School 8th grade volleyball team finished its season with a victory, taking all 3 sets 25-23, 26-24, 25-23 from Jackson Parkside.
The team rallied to pull ahead in three very close games.
“I have enjoyed coaching these girls,” said coach Pennie Ward. “I have seen so much growth in all the players – from not being able to serve overhand to having kills at the net.”
She said she is looking forward to watching these athletes grow and mature as volleyball players as they move through their high school years.
