Kerri Walsh Comes To Garner

Are you a fan of Kerri Walsh, the famous volleyball player who enjoys playing voleyball?  If you’re in vollleyball then you got to  to see her.

On Monday 11/7/11, Kerri Walsh was here at Garner to visit our awesome volleyball girls who have accomplished the season. Most of the volleyball girls got her signature on anything that they had and felt special, she also helped the girls learn new volleyball moves and taught them her techniques/ to spike the ball . Leslie Velasquez(7) says that, “she loves Kerri Walsh and was happy when she came” and  thought being at the press conference and T.V. was really awesome and she was super hiper, she also got Kerri Walsh signature. Jessica Para(7)said, “she didn’t know who she was but then she regonized her from the internetand books” and also says she enjoyed being there at the press conference and was a little bit shy, she also did not get her autogragh. The other volleyball girls said it was super awesome seeing Kerri Walsh at Garner.

Becoming Champions

This year many students on the volleyball, A-team are doing their best to become champions. So far Garner Middle School is undefeated and trying to get that trophy.

Every morning on school days, the A-team wakes up for practice at 6:00 ‘o clock in the morning and they practice in the gym. Coach Nordman teaches the students to go for the ball and not just stand there. To get points in a game is to know how to serve the ball over the net. Being on the A-team takes a lots of responsibility, like remembering to bring your clothes everyday and doing what your supposed to do. Students on the A-team are outstanding students. They do everything they need to and are keeping up their grades. They are also responsible students. They all try their hardest to win against other schools. Neely Habby(7), Mia Sels(7)  and Malory Potts(7)  are outstanding examples on the team. They do everything they need to do and are excellent players. They go for the ball, instead of just standing there and watching the ball go down to the floor. Malory, Neely and Mia are very good servers, in fact they are so good that the other team will not get a point or they would miss the ball.  They are doing their best to win every game.
