  • A libero? What’s that?

    The Lady Hawks volleyball team has made great improvements throughout this season. One way they have stepped up their play is by adding the position of a libero.

    A libero wears a different color uniform than the rest of the team. The libero can substitute for anyone in the back row at anytime, and is generally the team’s best passer.

    Senior Kristin Thompson is the libero for the varsity Lady Hawks this season. Thompson, who has been playing volleyball since the seventh grade, is the daughter of Deena and Chris Thompson.
