Volleyball Prepares for Competition

In its second year of existence, the Belmont Day volleyball program has 23 players on its roster. Given the large number, the team divided into Blue & Gold squads this week and are preparing for their first intramural competition, which is scheduled for next Thursday, January 16. The team’s four captains (Elena Ferrari, Maya Gregor, Lauren Kopperl, and Aaniya Riddick) are divided between the two squads and will be counted on to lead their teammates through the winter season, many of whom are totally new to the sport. As the program continues to grow, the possibility of transitioning to an interscholastic model becomes more of a reality. In the meantime, this year’s team will continue to develop their skills and learn the sport.
