Coach, players pleased after Owls first season in boys volleyball
Odyssey Middle School’s boys volleyball team finished its first season with a 3-3 record this spring.

Odyssey Middle School’s first boys volleyball team competed this spring and completed the season with a 3-3 record.

Not bad for a new team, especially considering some of the Owls were playing the sport for the first time.

Odyssey defeated ASPIRA Academy 2-0, Kennett 2-0, and Academia Antonia Alonso 2-0. The losses came against Brandywine Springs, Conrad Schools of Science, and Henry B. du Pont.

Considering this was Odyssey’s first season, coach Karen Patterson was happy with the overall results.

“It was like winning a championship,” Patterson said. “The boys never gave up and played their hearts out all season.”

Patterson said that all her players were “exceptional,” but she mentioned three that stood out.

Luke Henninger, a sixth grader, led the Owls in scoring.

“Luke was the heart behind the team,” said Patterson. “He is an exceptional athlete and an amazing person.”

Demetri Thomas, a seventh grader, was a team leader from day one.

“Demetri was the team captain from the first practice and showed his leadership on and off the court,” said Patterson.

Nolan Breeding, a seventh grader, had never played volleyball before joining the team this spring.

“Nolan came out of nowhere and played some of the best volleyball I have seen,” said Patterson.

Breeding was also satisfied with the team’s season and saw the growth that occurred.

“I think we did really well, for a lot of us not ever playing before,” said Breeding. “We definitely got better over time. We had a few really good players in the beginning, and then by the end everybody was quite good.”
