        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.

        The junior outside hitter has already amassed more than 1,500 kills in her career, and earned second team all-state honors for her work on the court this year.

        Vernon said it’s “shocking” to hear opposing teams talk about Ossining as highly as other sectional powerhouses such as Hen Hud and Panas. The Pride won titles in 2016 and 2018, exactly two years apart, albeit under vastly different circumstances.

        Congratulations Kayla!

        Those that know her best know this, those that play club volleyball know this, her future coaches at Howard University know this, and her high school coach Danyel del Rosario knows this.

        But Nanuet needed her to be more than just a setter, so she took on a significant portion of the Golden Knights’ hitting responsibilities. While her 5-foot-7 frame does not lend itself well to the position, her 30-inch vertical leap does more than enough to make up for it.

        “I think it’s made me an all-around player, being able to hit in high school and then go back to setting,” said Diaz, who is this year’s Journal News/lohud Rockland girls volleyball Player of the Year. “I think it definitely helped me out for college.”
