Freshman Lucas Irwin starts in the back row for the Huskies volleyball team.

The Huskies are 22-3 right now, and Irwin is a big part of that.  It was a big change for Irwin coming from eighth grade straight to varsity.

“Varsity is much more intense than other volleyball teams I have played on before and that is why I love playing on this team,” Irwin said.

Irwin is second on the team in digs, and his teammates push him to keep increasing that number.

“This team is very encouraging and my teammates make every single practice and game so much fun and I learn a lot from them,” Irwin said.

For Irwin, it was not just a change in practice intensity, but also a big change in talent levels of players in games.

“It is a completely different environment than other teams I have played on because the game is much faster, the players are much bigger and stronger, and the tier of difficulty has just increased overall,” Irwin said.

Irwin, a freshman starting on varsity, has potential to become a star, and with coach Nancy Lill guiding him, he can develop into his full potential.
