Taking the Ball and Running with It

Varsity Volleyball Head Coach Mike Murphy shared a summary of an off-season volleyball clinic for Dana Hall students.

On January 27, a group of Upper and Middle School students took to the volleyball courts in the Shipley Center to sharpen their skills at a winter clinic, led by nine members of the 2023 Varsity Volleyball team.

The two-hour session was filled with nearly two dozen Dana Hall students eager to improve. The captains from both the 2023 and 2024 seasons ran the event, with assistance from Varsity Volleyball Head Coach Mike Murphy, Middle School Coach Chris Day and Instructional Coach Charles Smerlas.

“This clinic clearly shows how the Varsity captains — and for that matter, the entire Varsity Volleyball team — has embraced an empowerment style of leadership,” said Coach Murphy. “Everyone pitched in. Even the younger players responded by showing up and taking part in the clinic. The Varsity team really wants to pass the skills they’ve learned onto the next round of players eager to take their spot on the roster. The captains at Dana Hall are leading our program in the right direction.”
