CLARKS SUMMIT, Pa. – Wins over Forest City, Blue Ridge and North Pocono have been highlights for the Abington Heights boys’ volleyball team this season, and they’re hoping to continue in the postseason.
“We kept our heads straight, I think we didn’t let the moment get to us or let it get too big or too little. We really tried to play at a consistent level all season. I think what we did going to do in the future is to keep ours.” control of the ball and picking up the pace a bit on our sets,” Nate said.
“So volleyball is more explosive, I would say jumping and hitting and everything like that. Football is more physical, I would definitely say two different sports, but I like to play both because they are two different aspects of my game,” he said Nico.
“Physically, this is definitely the most physical group we’ve had across the board. We have 21 children who you know from university and junior university. They all have different roles on the team and they all played a great role and embrace their roles,” Jamie said.
There’s no history lesson here for Abington Heights when it comes to boys’ volleyball in the past. They understand the importance of a Holy Redeemer and North Pocono program. For these comets they want to create their own legacy.
“You know Redeemer is always good. You know Pocono has had good teams in the past. We don’t discuss it too much. We don’t try to compare ourselves to previous teams. We’re just trying to move forward and just create our own path,” Jamie said again.
The boys’ volleyball game against North Pocono and the boys’ lacrosse game against Holy Redeemer on Tuesday May 10 have been moved to Wednesday May 11 to avoid conflicting with the AHHS NHS induction ceremony. All start times remain the same.
