The Scholars’ Academy girls varsity volleyball team has been ranked number 1 for the PSAL division ‘B’ playoffs. The team was very excited with the results. However, they know it will not be an easy road to travel. The team has been very busy playing other top ‘B’ division teams as well taking part in ‘A’ division tournaments to help them better prepare for the playoffs. At the PSAL ‘B’ division tournament held on October 29, the team split with Leon M. Goldstein in regular play but lost to Fort Hamilton in the semi-finals. The following weekend the girls participated in the JFK Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament where they showed some of their best play against Hunter High School and JFK. Nicole Glaz was named “All-Star” of this tournament. The first round of playoffs began on Thursday, November 10. Scholars’ Academy has a first round bye and will play their first playoff game next week on November 14 at 5 p.m. The game will be held at Scholars’ Academy.
