When the season began last fall, coach Jonah Carson impressed upon his players that every one of them would be critical to the success of the Mountain View Volleyball Club’s 18 Red boys team.
That proved to be the case, as the squad won the 18 Open Division of the USA Volleyball Boys Junior National Championships last month by getting contributions from every player.
