Teachers vs Students Volleyball Match

Highlights from the Teachers vs Students Volleyball game.

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.

For more Volleyball action, come watch NPSS host the Volleyball Zones Tournament this Saturday, October 21.
