Boy’s Volleyball is jumping into a new season.


Boys’ Volleyball is spiking up excitement for the spring season with their first game on Tuesday, March 12, at home against Arch Bishop Hoban at 6:30p.m.  They are playing again this week on March 14, away at St. Ed’s at 7 p.m. and away on March 16, against Olentangy at 10 a.m.   As the weather is warming up, the BBHHS boys are springing into the season ahead with focus and perseverance. 

Volleyball is a fast-paced and adrenaline-rushing sport where every member of the team is constantly working together toward one goal:  to keep the ball from landing on the floor of their side of the net. The boys on the team balance the life of being a student athlete and have many goals for this season. One overall strong goal among the teams is to go to States. This year for Brecksville Broadview Heights we have had so many sports teams go to states so the volleyball team hopes to rise to the challenge and achieve that amazing goal as well. 

Volleyball is no easy sport. It is not only mentally demanding, but very physically demanding and not easy.  According to, a  single player may jump as many as 300 times in a single volleyball match.

Tyler Goldthorpe, a senior, has been on the volleyball team for 3 years, says, “The hardest part about volleyball is the practice. We are meant to be one of the best teams in the state, so we have to practice like it too.”


Daniel Seitzinger, a sophomore,  has been on the team for 2 years, says, “My main goal for this season is to improve my overall skill and understanding of volleyball. Right now, I would say that I have a good skill set, but I need to improve on some aspects of hitting and serve receiving.” Volleyball involves being able to master different skills in a fast-paced game, so preparation is a must.

Chase Tsilimos, a Senior, has been playing volleyball for 12 years, says, “Boys’ volleyball is a spring sport and our playoffs push late into the regular season, which aligns with the AP exam dates.  There are very rough weeks when the exams come up because of the time in our season that it is.” Finding a balance is so important and both involve lots of consistent hard work and focus.

Tsilimos says, “My favorite part of being on the volleyball team is the culture that is built and the progression of skill throughout the year. On and off the court we know each other really well and I think it shows in how connected we play as a team. This culture as a program with both the JV and Varsity teams wanting each other to succeed and cheering for each other on the team and individual level is very important in my opinion and one of the things I believe we excel at as a program.”

With the season just starting there is a lot to look forward to and attending these games to support your teams is such an awesome way to not only show support but they are so fun to watch and it is a constant adrenaline rush as you watch the game play out. 

Goldthorpe says, “I’m just looking forward to being on a very competitive team with some of my best friends.¨
