The newly selected boys seventh- and eighth-grade volleyball teams at Merrick Avenue Middle School started their first season practice with a training clinic with the New York State boys champions volleyball team from Kennedy High School.

Led by coach Dennis Ringel, 16 members of the team came down to help get the first practice going with some great demonstrations and one-on-one coaching for the seventh- and eighth-graders. 

“The high schoolers were able to show off some of their skills, while working the middle schoolers to get their season off to a great start,” said Daniel Stiglitz, a technology teacher and co-volleyball coach at Merrick Avenue. The boys are also coached by Mark Gross.
