Emery/Weiner sixth-grade volleyball team
The Emery/Weiner School added a sixth-grade volleyball team (pictured) to its athletic roster this season. Originally planned to debut in 2020, the new team held off for a year due to the pandemic and this year’s sixth graders are proud to be the inaugural team. Coached by Angi Boudreaux, the girls have a full game schedule and are competing against other schools in the Greater Houston Athletic Conference (GHAC). The players are (top row, from left) Lani Banks, Sabrina Sen-Roy, Shirli Hochman, (middle row, from left) Aviva Key-Cohen, Grace Cutrer, Emily Arieli, Renana Machol, Mia Laviage, Marki Goott, Sami Berzin, Sydney McIngvale, Rebecca Silberlicht, (bottom row, from left) Laine Spector, Avery Wigder, Darya Domakhina, Stella Farber, Savannah Radoff, Charlotte Cutrer, Sadie Schwartz, Lauren Getz, and Mia Powers.
