State squad for volleyballer

Year 8 IGS student Christian Grasso’s commitment to improving his volleyball skills has paid off, as he has recently been selected for the NSW under 14s boys' volleyball squad.

“I was very pleased and proud of myself when I made the team as this is only my second year paying,” Christian said.

Christian will be competing in Wollongong in August, and again on the Gold Coast in September.

Christian said he is very happy “that all of the hard work and training has paid off” and he continues to “have fun” while playing volleyball.

“I love playing and meeting people who are just as passionate and committed as I am,” he said.

In preparation for the trials, Christian has been training with Year 12 IGS students, sharing advanced insights into the sport.
