On October 21, 2016, St. Martin’s A Volleyball Team played the faculty in their annual student versus faculty matchup. As always, it was a pretty fair fight; everyone in the audience was unsure which team would win.

In volleyball, there are two hitters, one back row and one front row, one setter (the person that pushes the ball up to one of the hitters), and two middles. They all work together to get three touches on the court and hit the ball over the net. Then, the other team struggles to do the same. When the serving team misses the point, the other team gets the ball to serve. The opposing team prepares to receive.

Last year, the faculty beat the students, so they were the defending champions. This year, A Team crushed the faculty! During the competitive game, the faculty was determined to defeat the Warriors, with great hits and passes from Mr. Hanse and Mr. McDaniel. Fortunately for the students, Bridgett M. had awesome spikes, and Ella S. had great blocks.  In addition, Sophia wiped the court with her serves. In the end, both teams played very hard, but the girls deserved their hard-fought victory. There’s always next year, faculty!
