>> Volleyball uses something similar to the automatic baseball and tennis ball serving machine. The angle and speed can be adjusted, usually consistent between 55 and 65 mph.

Kupono Fey was up feeding balls to a couple of liberos. Fey also took some serve-receive reps before practice

    2. HEY. Team asked for smaller event. Ocean Day Monday. No banquet.
    4. Thanks Karin but think it’s already filled. Which is why I didn’t put up anything.
    Robyn had wanted RSVPs by earlier in the week.
    3. As I wrote earlier they are still trying to work it out for Molokai. They want to do it but have to find a weekend that works with the sand season.
