Varsity

Overview

In fall 2010, Blair organized an intramural program to feed a growing interest among Blair girls in the sport of volleyball; the program has since evolved into a varsity team.

Volleyball begins in late August with a week-long preseason camp that consists of several practices and team activities a day, as well as scrimmages. In season, Blair competes against other NJISAA schools. Rutgers Prep, Lawrenceville, Pope John and Warren Hills are commonly seen on the schedule.
