Wednesday the U14 Boys’ Volleyball team had their first game of the season! The boys learned early on in the first set how important it is to communicate with each other on the court. Shout out to Haeden Schneider and Jamey Luepann for their excellent serving! During the last two sets, the boys’ passing improved and they ended the final set Appleby 25 Crestwood 20, a very close game!
On Wednesday, the Junior Boys’ Soccer team played their season opener against TCS. Right from the opening whistle, our boys controlled the game by keeping the ball away from the opposition. We must have been possessed by the spirit of FC Barcelona as our Tiki Taka passing put on showcase for the fans. We generated shot after shot on the opposing net, but being the first game of the season our accuracy was not quite there yet. Regardless of our many missed shots, 2 goals from Alex Korda and 1 goal from Jonas Weissland was more than enough to earn us our first victory of the season. Great game boys and let’s keep working to become an even more united team.
