Blair Volleyball program reaches new heights

The Blair volleyball program has come a long way since its birth. What once started as a club team in 2010, has now emerged into a growing competitive varsity program. This season, Blair's record sits at 4-3, which is an impressive mark given the team's most challenging schedule in program history.

Recently, Blair defeated two tough opponents. First, they defeated Dover in three sets with scores of 25-21, 17-25, 26-24. The next opponent they defeated was Summit High School with a score of 27-25, 25-15. In both matches, juniors Ramla Gunnarsdottir '21 and Alice Devereaux '21 led the team in kills proving to be promising offensive threats for the Bucs. 

We have a large group of returning players that work well together," said Cassi Gerdsen, Blair head volleyball coach. "I have said since the beginning of the season, I am excited to see this team come together this year with the addition of an outsider hitter, Ramla Gunnarsdottir and a freshman setter, Jene Vachirapong '23. Our team has been communicating really well, and this year everyone is really playing for their betterment for the team."

Blair enters the NJISAA state tournament as the 5th seed. They will host Trinity Hall on Friday, October 4th, at 4:00 p.m.
