HALE – This year’s middle school volleyball team had new coaches Chelsie Trombaly and Candace Young. They weren’t the only ones new at it; some 7th and 8th graders were new and said they had many skills set to learn for this year’s season. The returning players had many great strides and growth made from last season.
Ms. Tromblay said that she couldn’t be prouder of all the girls’ growth and development of skills and being able to watch them as a great team and strive. By the end of the season the girls were getting their serves over, passes were getting set up, they were learning to play as a team.
Even though the 7th grade had a rough season with 0-0, they still developed a lot of skills from the beginning of the year. The team’s goals for this year’s season were to be able to play as a whole and develop new skills for their future years.
