Player quote: “I am so stoked for the upcoming season! We still have a lot of our players returning and everyone has been working super hard. Last season we won the state sectionals but fell short in the group semis so we definitely are striving towards making our goals this season! I can’t believe it’s my senior year but I’m so excited to see what comes of it!” – Ava Novello

I am a team player who will always put in 100% effort. I am very determined and positive on and off the court! I also have good court awareness/volleyball IQ. I started playing volleyball around 10 and beach volleyball at 12. My primary position in beach volleyball is a defender, and I only play indoor for my high school, as an outside. I am very comfortable with my ball control and serve-receive, and I have been training outside of the club with Driven Performance in NJ to help further my speed, agility and vertical. I do that 1-2 times a week! Further, I earned a spot on Varsity as a freshmen, and started as well. I was nominated for Top-Underclassmen in NJ for high school volleyball, in addition to being interviewed for an article. My team and I won our conference, and earned third place in both states and sectionals! This semester, I am taking a few honors courses and extracurriculars. I am apart of my school’s newspaper as a staff writer (for the sports department), I’m also a part of three volunteer service clubs, including Red Cross, and lastly, I was accepted into an acapella group, and a selective women’s ensemble.
