The teachers challenged the NPSS volleyball teams to a match on Thursday. The Girl’s team scored the most points against the teachers, who ultimately lost the challenge. Kale says of the event: “My favorite moment was when a player got a ball to the face when they weren’t paying attention”. Other students enjoyed seeing their teachers struggle against their fit and agile competitors.
