Volleyball players are anxious to get started
BALDWIN -- Baldwin's volleyball season is still a few months away. But players like Abigail Oisten are anxious to get things going. But they're waiting for the greenlight so they can be on their way.
Oisten will be in her junior season this fall. She had a strong sophomore campaign for coach Duane Roberts' volleyball team.
Last season Oisten played every position except for libero and setter.
She indicated her strengths are digging and attacking.
To be an effective attacker, "you have to be sure your hands are aligned to where you want the ball to go," Oisten said. "You have to make sure you're in the right spot. I'm good at digging. You have to be ready to fall,"
All schools are currently shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic. This prohibits players from being in the gym. Athletes like Oisten are trying to work out in other ways.
"I have a volleyball at my house so we usually go outside and practice my serving," she said, adding certain restrictions on movement, "is kind of frustrating. Things are up in the air. Nobody knows yet. We're going to have a good team next year."
