Volleyball

The volleyball season is starting soon, so we decided to interview some of our players about their season. We interviewed Lucy Maske and Kyleigh Nasti from the seventh grade team, as well as Katelyn Brugger from the eighth grade team.

We asked Katelyn Brugger, “How do you think volleyball has affected your life?” She answered quickly, saying, “It makes me have more perseverance and meet new friends.” The next question we asked her was, “What position do you play in volleyball?” She answered quickly, saying, “Setter, right side, bench.” Another question we asked was, “Why did you start playing volleyball?” Her answer to that was, “All my best friends do it.” When we asked her how her teammates would describe her as a volleyball player, she had a great answer: “Nice, fun, a great bench buddy, and a pretty average player.” The fifth question we asked was, “What game was your favorite to play?” She took a moment to think and then said, “The green and white scrimmage.” When we asked her who her least favorite team to play was, she gave another great answer, saying, “Dee-Mack, becauseā€¦ they’re Dee-Mack.” When we asked her where she thinks she will place this year, she said, “Hopefully, state.” The last question we asked her was, “Would you be interested in playing volleyball later in your life?” She had a good answer, saying, “I’m doing it in high school, but not in college.”

Next, we interviewed Lucy Maske. We asked her, “How do you think volleyball has affected your life?” She had an amazing answer, saying, “It’s made me more confident.” The second question we asked her was, “What position do you play in volleyball?” She simply said, “Setter.” Another question we asked was, “Why did you start playing volleyball?” After a moment of thought, she answered, “I started in 4th grade and really loved it, and didn’t have a sport to play for.” When we asked her how her teammates would describe her as a volleyball player, she answered quickly, saying, “Very competitive, persevere, don’t quit.” We asked her about her favorite game to play, and she answered, “My favorite was the Haworth tournament, but we also lost.” When we asked her who her least favorite team to play was, she said, “Fieldcrest.” In terms of her expectations for this year, she said, “At least get to sectionals.” Finally, we asked her if she would be interested in playing volleyball later in her life, and the answer was “Yes.”

Lastly, we interviewed Kyleigh Nasti. The first question we asked her was, “How do you think volleyball has affected your life?” Her answer was, “I think it made me more athletic.” When we asked about her position in volleyball, she quickly responded, “Last year I played middle.” We inquired about why she started playing volleyball, and she said, “I started playing because I played it in P.E., and I realized I really enjoyed it.” When asked how her teammates would describe her as a player, she said “competitive.” We also asked about her favorite game, and she replied, “I’ve played Dee-Mack before, and they were fun to play.” Her least favorite team to play was “Tri Valley.” In terms of her expectations for this year, she said, “I’m not sure, but I think we will place high.” The last question we asked was, “Would you be interested in playing volleyball later in your life?” She had a good answer, saying, “Yes, maybe into college, but no further than that.”
