The past two weekends have taken the SIS Lady Gecko Middle School Volleyball teams to Dongguan for the PRC Exchange, and Guangzhou for the SDRC Exchange. With a balanced amount of Grade 6, 7, and 8 players, Coaches Knudsen and Michaels were able to try out quite a few lineups in the matches of the PRC Exchange, and were continually impressed by both the leadership and partnership that our more advanced players elicited toward the team members who are newer to the game. With 3 of 4 wins under their belts from the PRC tournament, our more experienced SDRC players won 2 of 3 matches, with strong performances in passing and hitting.
We've had two Grade 8 players step up in the setting position, which have helped to lead the teams in organization and rotations of their positions. We're greatly looking forward to the rest of our friendly games after CNY break, and our end-of-season tournaments. Skill development has been strong this season, but the girls' characters are really what have been growing dramatically and positively this year.
