Senior, Setter named to Second Team - All East Bay
Submitted By Coach Burmaster
Neal Barrina has earned another accolade after being honored by "Fans of the Game" as the Division I setter of the year. He has been selected as a member of the All East Bay Area Boys Volleyball Team - Second Team which includes all divisions of North Coast Section.
This follows his selection as First Team, Setter for the Mission Valley Athletic League and other awards over his three-year Varsity Boys' Volleyball career at James Logan High School (JLHS).
He was the starting Libero his sophomore year and anchored the passing and digging of a very good "ball control" team that advanced JLHS to the NCS Quarter Finals.
Neal has been the starting setter for both his Junior and Senior years at JLHS and the team advanced to the NCS Quarter Finals each season. This year was extremely special because the team was able to host a first round NCS match at home and share the last victory of the season with their home crowd, family, and friends.
Neal will be competing for a position on the UC San Diego Men's Volleyball Team next season and will be working toward a degree in engineering at UCSD.
This final award is a fitting tribute for our only three-year Varsity member of this year's team. As our team always cheers after one of his kills, "Go Neal, Go Neal..."
