The Girls’ Volleyball team played their last game before playoffs this Thursday against Frankford High School. The team’s great teamwork and communication won them the first two sets. Then, determined to win the fourth set, the team worked with incredible stride, which included team captain Emily Stephens playing eight serves in a row. With flawless passes and perfect hits, the team took the last set with a groundbreaking score of 25-8, taking home the win and finishing off the league with a record of 10-2. Congratulations to the whole team for being first place in the Double A division, and second overall in the league. Wish them luck and go Rockets!
Some exciting Digital Video news!
SLA Senior Digital Video students Pablo Salvatierra, Harry Wellner, Tito Mazucchi, David Williams, and Jack Celli created a film last year called Mt. Sion that has been selected as a finalist for WHYY Youth Media Awards.
From WHYY: Between May and August, WHYY received over 230 video entries from around the region. These submissions showcased the full spectrum of young talent and were a testament to the depth and breadth of the passion for filmmaking among greater Philadelphia’s young people. Of the more than 230 submissions, we are only able to screen 18 finalists at the November 4th event here at WHYY. Your video will be one of those 18.
Congratulations to the SLA Digital Video Team!
