Girls Varsity Volleyball
Girls Varsity Volleyball
Begun in 2013, the Nobles varsity volleyball team consistently aims to promote the legacy of superb performance among Nobles’ girls athletic programs. Through strong leadership, commitment, and dedication, the team relies on a ‘team-first’ culture that not only enhances the game-time dynamic, but also develops individuals of great character both on and off the court. Our focus each season is on honing fundamental skills, improving court- and game-sense, and displaying mental toughness. We are committed to developing novice and experienced players and fostering the technical and mental skills that will make our team and individual players competitive in the Independent School League (ISL) and beyond. Each season, at least one of our players is recognized by ISL coaches as an All-League honoree or honorable mention, an achievement that illustrates the respect the program garners from our peers. As a second-year program, Nobles’ girls varsity volleyball team proudly captured the 2014 New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Class B Volleyball Championship title, and appeared in the Class A tournament the following fall. Beyond the win-loss column and the accolades, the Nobles varsity volleyball team prides itself most on building lasting friendships while competing at a high level playing a game we all love.
