Walking into the gym with your team on your side, you hear the sounds of feet stomping in the bleaches, ready to show up and cheer you on to win it for your grade in a game of volleyball. Homecoming week is the only chance that the Triton men can play volleyball at the level of a true team and be fueled to win. With the rise in popularity when the Homecoming game of volleyball rolls around as well as how much hype surrounds the activity, some are imagining having that every day if you play,  or every week just to watch. 

Volleyball is the fifth most popular sport in the world, right behind tennis according to “The World Atlas,”  not only for women but also for men. Guys are scared to say that they like volleyball because it is seen in triton as a “girl’s sport”. However, volleyball is one of the best sports to highlight teamwork and sportsmanship with everyone bringing out the best in each other and no one being the main star of the team. Everyone has an opportunity for greatness because each player rotates into each position on the court. 

The USA Volleyball Association states that volleyball helps to foster skills like leadership, teamwork, and respect. One of the great aspects of volleyball is that it is very easy to learn and to do well in the game. Once you learn the three most basic skills: passing, serving, and hitting, you can be good at the game. If you come from any other sport, those skills will make you good at volleyball, especially if that sport involves a lot of training for jumping and stamina.

Although Triton only has the opportunity for guys to play volleyball during Homecoming I found out recently that there are more opportunities for playing volleyball as a varsity sport. The girls’ assistant coach stopped me recently and mentioned that there are boys’ volleyball teams within a 30-minute radius from us. Hopefully, a boys’ volleyball team will be somewhere in Triton’s future.

Hudson Murphy, Staff Writer
Yo, my name is Hudson Murphy and I am a senior at Triton Regional High School. I like to play drums and make music, I enjoy intramural volleyball and throw shotput for the track team both seasons. I work at a dog daycare called Frisky Dog, I have a twin sibling called Weston who goes to the same school as me. I enjoy watching movies and shows with my friends and family. I like how involved you can get with school and life in general and get people caught up on what is going on in the world. I prefer to write about trends and events going on in the school. My goal is to get more people to read the newspaper and keep up with everything going on with everything around them. Being able to have the information and showing people the current events and stuff going around in the world is important in keeping people up to date and able to adjust to the information. After high school, I want to go to college and study health sciences specializing in exercise. I would like to make a career as a personal trainer and help people reach their full potential. It makes me happy to see others succeed and reach beyond what they think they are capable of.  You can reach me at [email protected]
