North High Girls Varsity Volleyball
Female volleyball players must be strong, athletic, tall, calm under pressure, and quick to react. All of these adjectives, with the exception of great height, describe this year's Great Neck North girls varsity volleyball team. Starting practice one week prior to school, and continuing to work hard everyday thereafter even on Saturday mornings, the girls have been arduously concentrating on their bumps, and working on their agility. Their sets have improved, and despite their "lack of inches" they are able to jump high and spike, a key component of winning a game.
