Boys JV Volleyball Team Claims Silver in Smithtown thumbnail206130

The high school’s boys junior varsity volleyball team headed to Smithtown High School West on Oct. 23 to compete in a 16-team tournament. The East Islip athletes started off slow, with some struggles in the pool play, but were able to overcome adversity and win the silver playoff bracket.

“Setter Jake Vessalico and libero Teague Nolan made huge contributions to the team during the playoff rounds, as well as outside hitter Carter Jones, who rose to the challenge when the team needed him most,” said coach Bill Lackner, “Everyone stepped up when we needed them to. In each set of the playoffs, the boys showed an uncommon desire to win. I’m very proud that they were rewarded for their efforts and hard work.”
