AISA BOYS VOLLEYBALL RESULTS
2013 AISA boys volleyball tournament program
SOIS proudly hosted the 2013 AISA boys volleyball tournament on the Sabers court,
Friday and Saturday, October 18-19, 2013. Thank you, Sabers fans, for cheering on the team. The tournament program has rosters, rules, and a match schedule.
Among other things, these students handle the official scoring for all home events, they organize tournament set up and hospitality, they help maintain uniforms, they create the athletic awards celebration photo slideshow, and they help the AD maintain his sanity. The SSC has perfected its year-to-year turnover: the older members mentor the younger members throughout the year so that there is a smooth annual transition as the older members graduate and the younger members take over. The job they do is a highly skilled, highly pressured one, but the SSCers always have a smile for everyone.
"Welcome to another episode of Sabers TV!" Every other Wednesday morning, Sabers TV is broadcast to all classrooms via SOIS's in-school television network. Student anchors, interviewers, camera operators, and control board technicians all work together to put on this polished biweekly show containing updates on Sabers results and interviews with coaches and players. With the technical expertise of Mr. Frater and minimal guidance from Mr. Heimer, the students write, organize, rehearse, promote, produce and broadcast the show on their own...and have lots of fun doing so.
Coach Heimer, SOIS AD
