For The Townsman

The Laurie Middle School bantam boys volleyball team claimed the Volleyball EK Zones in five straight wins after an impressive undefeated season.

“This group has been together for the last couple of years and it shows,” said coach Rob Mogielka. “They have a great work ethic and trust each other to make passes and win sets.”

The team is comprised of eight Grade 8 boys.

“This group of boys are pretty tough to beat,” said co-coach Jesse Jiminez. “They have a skill level that they work on both at the school level and at Volleyball Club.”

The Laurie Bantam Boys played four tournaments this season. According to Mogielka, the team won nearly every game in two sets and claimed four first-place trophies for Laurie Middle School.

“We are pretty proud of these guys,” Jimenez added. “Their hard work has paid off.”
