In My Own Words: Volleyball Team Experiences That Will Last a Lifetime

In My Own Words
In this installment of In My Own Words, Brooke Smith shares her freshman experience playing volleyball. A perfect example of it's the journey and not the destination that's important.

This year, I played volleyball on the Lampeter-Strasburg High School team. It was my fourth year playing the sport, but it was definitely a season to remember. Not only were the practices, games, and tournaments fun, but I also enjoyed getting to know my team. Here are some the really cool things we did together.

Movie night at Betsy's

Breakfast at George's

Trip to Mount Gretna


Millersville team camp


Pool party

Team runs

I will never forget these experiences especially because we documented them all through the LSGirlsvball Instagram page. These activities allowed me to grow closer to the girls and created a team bond. I also learned a lot about the game this year. My favorite position was outside hitter.

I also enjoyed being a defensive specialist. I played in positions five and six and was even the libero for a few games.


I worked on serving and some basic fundamentals as well. I had an amazing experience this year and I am really going to miss the seniors next year! However, I am super excited to meet the incoming freshmen, and I can't wait to be back on the court with my team again next season!
