BIG things are happening for 2015 Bethany Grad: Hunter!

Check out what 2015 Bethany Grad, Hunter, is up to! He is very accomplished, both on and off the court. God bless you as you enter your senior year of HS, Hunter!

Hunter is finishing up his junior year at Timothy Christian High School in Elmhurst. Hunter has been hoping Timothy would start up a boys volleyball team, and because of the popularity of the game growing in it's conference, and due to the growing interest on the part of students and families, Timothy launched it's "warm up season" this spring with a team that competed on the JV level. Competing in 6 conference matches (3 at home and 3 away) and in a JV tournament, Timothy's 11 player team completed the season with a 7-3 record, including wining 2nd at the JV tournament at Fenton High School. Next year Timothy's boys will compete in an official conference season. Hunter is excited to be part of the first team at Timothy! Go Trojans!

Hunter is also in his 4th season at Sport's Performance Boys Volleyball. He is the starting Middle Blocker on the 2nd 18's team (18 Lenny - photo). John Jaworski is one of his 10 teammates, consisting of 6 seniors and 5 juniors. They will be competing at the USAV Boy's Junior National Championship in Phoenix in early July. Their team will play in the National Open Division, after qualifying 3 times, in previous tournaments, to compete at this level. The team is named in honor of a fallen US soldier who played volleyball at Sport's Performance.

We fondly remember winning the LSA Illinois State championship in 2014. The foundations of Bethany volleyball were a great stepping stone for future achievements.

Hunter plans to play volleyball in college.
