Game over. Montour wins a competitive match 25-23.

“Both 7 and 8th grade records were 6 wins and 8 losses,” said Hopewell HS and 8th Grade Girls Volleyball Coach Terry Borkovic. “While a few extra wins would have been nice, the important thing is the growth and development throughout the season. Most matches were very competitive. Only a few points difference and their records could have easily been 10 – 4.”

“The 7th grade showed improvement in their overall court awareness and transitions. The 7th grade team improved in all basic skills. Coach Lexi did an outstanding job of preparing these girls for each match.”

“I’m very pleased with the 8th grade development,” said Borkovic. “Every phase of their game improved. Serve receive, serving, attacking, blocking, digging, and setting, were better and the end of the season than at the beginning. I felt we were playing our best volleyball at the end of the season.”

Having the opportunity to work with these 8th graders was both exciting and beneficial for Coach Borkovic as the always strong high school program appears to be adding plenty of talent to their roster over the upcoming years.

“This team is very talented. The girls have a passion for the game. They are very goal oriented and genuinely care for each other. I enjoyed coaching this team. I’m anxiously awaiting upcoming summer workouts to see who’s going to stay with volleyball. With 17 girls on the team, some will move on to other sports/activities. I wish them well! For the girls that stay with volleyball, their future is bright.”
