As the spring sports season begins, the Townsend Harris Hawks hold a record of five wins and no losses. The athletes on the Townsend Harris boys varsity volleyball team shared their hopes and goals for this season.

Captain and senior Nicolas Lee is excited for his last season on the team. He said, “I look forward to going to tournaments the most this season. Tournaments have always been the most exciting events for me because we get to see a variety of schools from across the city. It’s such a fun yet competitive environment.” Along with looking forward to the team’s tournaments, he said he hopes to improve the team better by teaching the underclassmen. “The most important thing to learn is work ethic. Skills and teamwork all come as a consequence of discipline and showing up every day,” said Nicolas.

Similarly, freshman Neo Mun, a new addition to the team, is looking forward to playing against other schools competitively for the first time. “For this season I am mostly looking forward to playing with other schools. I’ve been playing volleyball at different places, but I’ve never actually played competitively against other teams,” he said. Although Neo is a new addition to the team, he has created multiple goals that he hopes the team will achieve. “I would want for everyone to bond together and to communicate,” he said. He believes this goal will be accomplished in “a matter of time, the more we play together the more fond we get of one another.”

Sophomore and returning player Brian Merino is determined to improve his skills during this season. He said, “I’m also excited to welcome in all the new players this year and grow our volleyball family.” Brian’s hope for this season is to make the playoffs. In order to do that he said that he gives his word that “we’re going to be working hard and putting our 100% into this season.”

Junior and captain Timothy Chan said he’s looking forward to “playing with a new team because a lot of the seniors graduated and obviously winning.” He knows this won’t be easy so he has set goals for himself and the team. Timothy’s goal for the team is to “win our division and go far into the playoffs.” In order to achieve this he said the team has to have “communication like talking on the court and just working on our team chemistry in general.”

New coach Christian Castillo said he has high hopes for the season. He said, “my goals are for them to do better than what they have done before…for them to enjoy the sport as much as they can, and for them to win, to have a winning experience since unfortunately it was not the case before last year.”
