Fall Sports Report: Volleyball

Volleyball Team

While it was a short season, the Blazers took it to the court and net with strength and positive teamwork. The ten 8th graders and two 6th graders who comprised the team all grew immensely during this quick season. The Blazers learned about ball movement, the different positions on the court, how to pass, set, bump, serve, and spike.

The team played great in their game with St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School, winning the first match and taking it to a game three. Although they fell by 2 points in the final match, they played hard and learned a great amount. Eighth grader Stella McKitrick served for 8 points, a Blazer record! The season ended with Burgundy alumna, Majlis Walker '15, a sophomore at TC Williams High School, teaching the Blazers a few tips and what to work on for their future in the sport. I am very proud of the Blazers and all they have accomplished this season! Great job!
