“My Thoughts As a Volleyball Player”- by Hannah Heath
Volleyball is a very fun sport, but don’t get me wrong, it’s takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Volleyball is just like every other sport. It doesn’t take just one person, it takes the whole team working together, and it can be difficult if the whole team doesn’t put in effort. There’s a lot to learn about volleyball:l the rules to learn and how to play the game right, but once you get it all figured out, it’s one of the more fun sports, in my opinion.
