The World of Volleyball

The Norwell Lady Knights Volleyball team played three teams this week. Monday night, the Lady K's hosted the Adam Central Jets. In an epic clash of volleyball titans, the Lady K's emerged victorious, 3 games to 1. The following night, the Lady K's hosted the Bellmont Squaws and lost, 3 games to none. Thursday night the Volleyball girls hit the road and headed on their way to pulling out their second victory this week, 3 games to 2, against the New Haven Bulldogs. Injury has plagued the volleyball girls and they have managed to fight through this. All in all, it was a pretty good week in the volleyball world at Norwell.
