Thanks to the hard work of Garaway student Austin Monigold, Garaway officially hasVolleyballleyball team. Not only did he prepare a study for the Garaway Board of Education, but he wrote a grant that funded the team’s needs this year, including volley- balls and uniforms. Garaway’s net was already adjustable which made home matches possible with just some simple adjustments. The addition of the sport was approved at the November 2017 Garaway Board of Education meeting.

Coached by Katie Scott from Strasburg who coached the Garaway Girls Volleyball team last fall, the group has a record of 2 – 3.

They have picked up wins over Jackson Junior Varsity and Jack- son Freshmen. That have lost to Brunswick twice and once to Stow Monroe Falls.

The team includes Austin Monigold, Jared Herman, Jack Amicone, Jared Swartztentruber, Kaleb Yoder, Mikey Blauch and Teag Malcolm.
