Boys’ Volleyball is looking to pin its first banner on the gym wall after its final game in the Southwest Preparatory Conference (SPC) Sat., November 8.

“It’s looking like it will come down to SJS, Greenhill and St. Mark’s from Dallas, and Casady from Oklahoma,” senior John Armstrong said. “Honestly, it’s a tossup between those four teams.”

Some of the most valuable players to the team include Armstrong and juniors Gabe Malek, Marcus Manca, and Paul Labanowski.

“I would say that we get the most touches on the ball,” Manca said.

Practices typically start with hitting and passing drills, culminating with practice scrimmages.

“It does not feel like it is that much work because the work is fun,” Armstrong said. “There aren’t many aspects of volleyball that make it tiresome.”

This is Charles Hulett’s first year as Head Coach of Boys’ Volleyball.

“He’s awesome,” Manca said. “He’s a cool guy and knows the sport really well, and he coaches club teams outside of school.”

Several players caught the flu this past week, which has made practices inconsistent. Many are now back in action, including setter Gabe Malek.

“The main accomplishment happened last weekend on Saturday,” Hulett said. “We finished the normal season with our last counter and made a statement by making our record 6-0 in the South Zone of the SPC.”

The players left on a bus this afternoon, Nov. 6, for the Greenhill School, where they will play their first tournament game against Fort Worth Country Day School.

“These players have kept this season exciting, and I believe great things will follow them to Dallas, where I expect us to make some history,” Hulett said.

Boys’ volleyball plays its first game tomorrow, Nov. 7, at 9:00 a.m. at Greenhill against Fort Worth Country Day.
