Strengths/Question Marks: With only losing one player to graduation, this team has built a lot of chemistry at the varsity level. This squad has built a ton of resilience, noting that many losses last season were often in four or five sets. Coming into this season, there is a lot of height on the team and - hoping that transfers into strong blocking numbers.
“With nine seniors returning, the team is excited to battle and fight for district playoffs this season.
Third-year varsity junior setter Mitchell Gribman is an incredibly passionate and talented setter and we’re looking forward to his seamless orchestration of the Golden Hawk’s Offense.
“Senior Jatin Singh entered varsity last year as a lefty setter turned middle to lead the team in blocks and offense as we’re excited to see his power shine through this Spring.
“After last season with only two returning varsity players and a new coach to the program, the team battled intensely often losing in four to five sets. This team is very eager to fight and battle again and turn this season around extending their season to district playoffs.”
