Grade 5/6 Girls Volleyball:

Congratulations to the awesome Duke Grade 5/6 Girls Volleyball Team! They played in the Conference Finals on Friday. (Six dedicated team members even had to race back from Island School a little early to play in the match!) After going down by a few points, Duke made a great comeback to take the first game. Unfortunately, we lost in the 3rd match 15-17, as close as it comes! From watching first time volleyball players being mentored by our more experienced ones to seeing our team grow, develop and improve with each game, what a season this team has had. Your coaches are so proud of all you accomplished and you should be too. And… take a look for that new Conference Finalist Banner that we’re bringing back to Duke!! Congrats Duke - Mr. Boccia, Mr. Archibald
