Trojan Boys Volleyball Preview

Spring sports are in full spring here at CASHS, and one team to look out for is the boy’s volleyball team. With many returning players from a year ago, the team looks to advance past districts and into the state championship this year. With all of this added pressure to perform at a high level, the team will have to come together as one to achieve their goals.

 

When asked about the team’s goals for this upcoming season, senior Alex Lapinski said, “Our goal is to be a top seed in our district so we can play a district game at home.” To get a home game for districts, the Trojans will have to place in the top 8 teams in 3A, with the top two seeds getting a bye. Although it will be challenging to achieve a top 8 finish, there is a lot to build on from last season’s 9th place finish. “Another goal of ours is to finish in a high enough spot to qualify for states”, said Lapinski. Although that would require a top 5 finish in the district championship, this team is more than capable of achieving it.

 

With the high stakes of being able to host a district game at CASHS and qualify for the state tournament, practice is the most important key for the team to achieve their goals. “We can all improve on the floor by practicing out hardest and preparing for each opponent”, said Alex. With preparation and practice, it is very possible that the Chambersburg Trojan Boys Volleyball team will be able to host a district game and go on to states, their top goals for this season.
