The most greatly awaited sports season has begun again at GHS! This week and last, students and teachers battled for intramural ascendency, serving, spiking, ducking, and diving in their quest for the title of volleyball champ. 

This year there are twelve teams competing: Empire Spikes Back, Iron Curtain, Devil Dogs, Average Joes, Notorious FC, Italian Stallions, Abstinence, Freezers, SWAT Team, Sneak Attack, Censored, and Disaster Drill. The first games were after school last Monday. Teams have faced off in 20 minute matches everyday (except election day) since then.
