    “There are only two groups of people whose job is to win games,” says Thompson. “Coaches and players. Parents have a much more important job: to guide their child’s character development.”

    Do you have any advice to offer parents? Getting your kids involved in team sports is a gift you give them for life. Volleyball is a game that instills confidence, commitment, teamwork, strategic thinking and so much more. Once they’re in sports, parents can never be too positive when supporting them. After a great game or a rough match, players are looking for positivity and understanding and support. Nothing beats a hug from mom and dad.

    Kids don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

    News and Information

    Congratulations to Downstate Alum coach and current head coach at Hofstra, Emily Mansur, for winning the CAA Championships! Best of luck to you and your team in the NCAA Tournament!

    The Blue Eagles won an NJSIAA-record fourth consecutive Tournament of Champions title by outlasting rival Demarest in three high-quality sets in Sunday’s 13th annual final at South Brunswick High School.

    Kirwan led the IHA comeback with a pair of blocks and a kill. Also contributing kills were juniors Jamie del Rosario, Casey King, and Annabel Reyes (team-high 10 kills). Senior libero Maeve Kenny had a handful of her 26 digs.

    "Demarest really wanted it in Set 3," Nolan said, "and I said to myself, ‘Do our players really want it?’ I just wanted them to step up and grab it, and take charge out there. And all of a sudden, we did. We turned it around, and believed we could, and finished it up and went charging through."

    On top of being the City Champions, the team also received a number of individual awards. Senior captain Kelly Gallagher was named the Bronx/Westchester League Player of the Year.

    Three members of the Northeastern women's volleyball team garnered CAA awards on Wednesday night for their outstanding performances throughout the 2014 volleyball season. Outside hitter Brigitte Burcescu received CAA Rookie of the Year honors, becoming the fourth Husky in the last five years to be recognized as the conference's top freshman.
     
    Senior libero Natalia Skiba was selected to the All-CAA Second Team, while sophomore setter Jamie Bredahl was named to the league's All-Academic Team.
     
    Burcescu, who also received a spot on the conference's All-Rookie Team, played in all 116 sets for Northeastern this year. As of Nov. 16, the 6-1 hitter from Cortlandt Manor, New York was ranked fourth among all Division I freshmen in total kills (400), and third in the CAA with a 3.45 kills per set average. Burcescu filled up the stat sheets all year long for the Huskies, and collected 20 or more kills on six different occasions, including a season-high 25-kill performance against Rhode Island on Sept. 9.

    One of eight Patriot League players to secure a place on the first team was Perri, who ended the season second in the conference with 318 total kills. Her 3.03 kills per set average ranked fourth in the league and Perri appeared in 105 of Army's 107 sets this season, the most of any Black Knights' player. The Cortlandt Manor, N.Y., product also contributed 119 digs, good for fifth on the team and was second in blocks behind Bockrath with 38 to her name.

    "Nicole has improved tremendously this past season and provided leadership that complimented the seniors very well," Kovaci said of her junior outside hitter. "She went from only playing in the front row to becoming a six rotation player and is well respected on our team and everyone looks up to her. She is an extremely passionate player and her desire to get better is one of the best of any player I have ever coached."
