        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 price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand." -Vince Lombardi

        Congratulations to Aspire 15 Blue for winning the SOSVBC 15 Club tournament on Feb. 2! This makes 2 events in a row that the team has won!

        Congratulations to senior Pamela Loh, who has been honored by not one, but two coaching associations for her accomplishments in volleyball. Pamela was named Section 1 Player of the Year by the Section 1 Coaches Association, and she was additionally honored as a Player of the Year by the New York State Coaches Association.

        Varsity volleyball coach Diane Swertfager describes Pamela as “so deserving, not only for her athleticism and leadership, but for her respect towards teammates, coaches, opposing coaches and players, and officials.”

        Swertfager adds that Pamela worked through any adversity with grace and maturity. "Her great sportsmanship displays her true character and demonstrates what a fine young lady she is."

        This fall, Pamela was also honored as a Con Ed Athlete of the Week.
