PITSBURG – The Franklin Monroe Lady Jets volleyball program under the direction of head coach Angie Filbrun completed its annual youth volleyball camp with the largest number of campers attending to date.

“This is our biggest one yet,“ said Filbrun. “We had a few girls from other schools but pretty much all FM girls,”

The camp is intended to get the girls in the gym while getting them excited about the game of volleyball.

“We are not perfecting skills in just a couple days but we are getting them excited to be in the gym and maybe play the game someday,” Filbrun stated.

The three day camp taught basic passing, setting and serving skills. “We even got into a little bit of hitting of which of course they loved,” noted Filbrun.

“I have an excellent coaching staff, my coaching staff and my high school girls were incredible this week,” she said. “Just to watch them with those younger girls – those younger girls look up to them more than they realize. Just to watch them on the floor, to teach and to grow as players themselves it is very rewarding.”

Four major awards were presented by Coach Filbrun at the close of the camp including two Jet Awards and two MVP awards.
