Submitted by kate.searle on Tue, 10/17/2017 - 10:33


One of the most enjoyed sports in the fall here at PHS is certainly volleyball. There’s a unique feeling to volleyball that there isn’t in any other sport. And the girls volleyball team here at PHS have played proudly for their  school and  have shown respect and courtesy to their opponents. And as easy as volleyball may look, most people may come to find that it can be quite difficult.
