Midway through the season, spring athletes demonstrate skill during practices, games
By Victoria Slater, ’12
Senior Captain Michael Schroer
Q: Boys volleyball isn’t as well known as other sports. How are you going about changing that?
Schroer: We are really trying to get the word out via Kickin ‘ It Live and flyers around the school. Honestly, volleyball is a very fun sport and that’s what we want to communicate to people.
Q: What strategies has your team adopted to achieve victory?
Schroer: We need to have energy and play like the team we are. We just need to go out on the court with the confidence of a winning team.
Q: What are your goals for this season?
Schroer: This year we hope to be in the top half of the OCC which would be a real accomplishment if you look at the skill level and rank of schools like Darby and Bradley.
Senior Captain Zoe Ribar
Q: What about crew makes it stand out from other sports?
Ribar: You probably have no idea that the true power of a boat comes from your legs, not your arms, and that in a weird way spandex unisuits are a normalcy. Crew is great because you know that not just anybody can do what you do. There’s a real sense of accomplishment in that.
Q: What are the strengths of this year’s team?
Ribar: Our biggest strength is in each other. It’s a team sport after all, and being able to play on that connection as well as the time we’ve spent together will give us an advantage over other teams.
Q: What do you enjoy about being a captain?
Ribar: A captain is the real embodiment of who a team is and what they stand for. They are who everyone may hope to be and are who each teammate can look to for direction.
