Heritage Introduces Boys’ Volleyball
New year, new coach, new sport. Heritage High volleyball hired a new head volleyball coach and to make an impact on the Heritage community, Hannah Eberle, started a boys’ volleyball team.
“I think that everyone should play volleyball, even if it is just for fun or on a competitive team so we just went for it,” says Eberle, Head Volleyball Coach.
She has been coaching for 13 years at collegiate, high school and club levels. When she was first hired she had heard that there has been an interest in the start of a boys’ volleyball team.
“The boys are absolutely hilarious. They are athletic enough to get the job done, even if it doesn’t look too pretty; they get the point of the game,” says Eberle.
Boys’ volleyball is different from girls’ volleyball. Girls use more strategy and have more of a mental game. The boys have a mind set to just do, not needing lots of training on form. Eberle says that they are athletic enough to figure it out themselves.
“It is really fun to just watch them figure the game out. Their goal is to get the ball in the air no matter the cost,” says Eberle.
The players are learning about the game while still enjoying the competition.
“I have learned that there are a lot of complicated rotations and rules regarding the rotations,” says Noah Breslaw ’17.
The boys competed in a national tournament in Denver at the Convention Center.
“We lost all of our games, but I noticed that we just play to have fun and it makes for a fun environment,” says Breslaw.by
