About the Team
The Morris Catholic Girls’ Volleyball team has had plenty of success over the past few seasons. This upcoming year, the team is led by a large number of returning players, with the possibility of a few new faces joining the squad. These players will use their past experience to take the team to new heights, while also teaching the younger players what it means to be a part of the team. With many players participating in club teams throughout New Jersey, the team should continue to excel and improve each and every week.
