Spiking Success: The Rise of Juab’s New Boys Volleyball Club

If the girls are too boring to watch, buckle your seat belts and get ready to cheer for Boys Volleyball! They have been able to start playing because of the wonderful coaches that started the team, and who sacrifice their time and energy to practices and training, are Jenna Camp, Westyn Robinson, and David Settle. They have set up practices every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in our local rec building, the Hive, since early August. They test their players’ skills everyday, whether it be working on passing, diving, blocking, or just general teamwork.

The teams are separated into three different teams, a 18U, 16U1, and a 16U2 team. The 18U team consists of Tate Halvorsen and Alvin Yuan as team captains, along with Kaes Kyle, Sebastian Padilla, Owen Bailey, Noah Bailey, Zach Morell, and Barrett Brooks. In the 16U1 team, there’s Ethan Tuckett and Aiden Bethers as team captains with Quentin Jones, Gabe Settle, Dallin Dinkel, and Preston Thompson. The 16U2 team has Brody Kjar, Logan Crippen, Spencer Hall, Liam Bethers, Jake Strange.  

Their first tournament was September fifteenth and sixteenth where they played phenomenally but were withered down into losing every set. However, even with the losses they kept good team morale and still had a positive experience. The teams’ have their next tournament this Friday and Saturday. The 18U team will be playing in the Hive, while the 16U team will be going up to Salt Lake for their tournament. Make sure to wish them luck!
