Emery/Weiner School volleyball
The Emery/Weiner School wrapped up a successful volleyball season. Middle-school players (pictured) adapted to new protocols so everyone could safely play during the pandemic, and they were able to get in several games. After a slow start, the team made it to the playoff semifinals before a tough loss to St. Mark’s Episcopal School in the third-place game. They wrapped up the season with an outdoor awards ceremony to celebrate the team’s efforts. The Emery/Weiner volleyball players are (top row, from left) Jillian Garrett, Juliette Hess, Sophie Grosman, Micayla Farber, Emily Williams, Lexi Robinson, Sofya Domakhina, Hailey Sheena, Elissa Roser, Sophia Zimmerman, Avery Josef, (bottom row, from left) Maddie Lacombe, Raya Weinstock, Esther Gordon, Emmy Brounes, Sara Callahan.
