The first home game of the Robinson Knights’ Volleyball season was on Thursday, Aug. 25, where the Knights defeated the Hillsborough Terriers in three sets. With new captains at the helm, senior captain Mina Kuklen and junior captain Haidyn Spano began to lead their young team to victory.

“It’s a whole new team; it’s all very different but we are figuring out the culture now,” Spano said.

The Knights won the first set 25-19, the closest and most competitive set of the game. Hillsborough started the set strong, taking the lead over the Knights, but the Knights kept pressing forward until they won.

“We played pretty hard, especially for our second game. We’re still getting to know each other, so the connects are different,” Spano said.

There’s a tough season ahead with Plant, Newsome and Steinbrenner still on the schedule, but the Knights plan to Prevail to fight to have a winning record.

“My hope is that we just continue to strive toward a purpose. This is definitely a building and learning year for the Volleyball team,” Spano said. “We have a young team with us with some raw talent, so our main goal is to change the narrative and guide a lasting program.”

About the Contributor
Araya Stearns, Senior Staff Writer
Araya Stearns is a senior at Robinson and a senior staff writer for Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff. An essential part of Stearns is her love for sports. At Robinson, she plays both flag football and softball. She loves the flag team she's a part of, aiding her love of the sport overall. The same applies to softball, which Stearns has been involved in since her early years. "Softball, I've been playing since, like, the age of four, so meeting new people and having more friends due to softball is a really big thing for me," Stearns said. After her time at Robinson, Stearns plans to keep moving forward on the softball track, hoping to pursue the sport throughout college and strive for the pro-leagues. Wanting to stay active even after college, a career in physical therapy or training is in her sights. Besides sports, Stearns loves her share of country music. Artists like Kane Brown and Morgan Wallen are common in her everyday playlist. Like many right now, Stearns has been enjoying the new volume of "Stranger Things," eager for the new season to come out in her senior year. Dialing down on the intensity, her favorite movies are typically from Disney, considering that she's surrounded by younger siblings. She finds movies like "Luca" fun to watch by herself or with others. This year, Stearns wants to keep her focus on the sports section, mainly attending sports games and taking pictures for our galleries. She loves the atmosphere of any sports game, keeping her ambitious to improve her photography skills throughout her junior year. (Profile by Faith Rowland)
