Boys Volleyball Preview
Greater Nanticoke Area
Coach: Debbie Krupinski
2005 record: 9-6
Eric Bieski, sr., setter; Keith Munson, jr., outside hitter; Matt Harvey,
jr., outside hitter; John Albanese, so.
Last year, Nanticoke, Hazleton and Abington ended
the regular season tied for the eighth seed in the District 2 tournament
and also played a tri-meet to decide who would get the last seed.
Top five matches: Lake-Lehman at North Pocono, Wednesday; Nanticoke
at Berwick, April 5; Bishop Hoban at Lake-Lehman, May 9; North
Pocono at Bishop Hoban, May 11; Hazleton Area at
Nanticoke, May 17.
Outlook: The Trojans have quietly
become a contender in the WVC. With many players returning from last years
team, they should improve on their record and make a run at the playoffs.
Nanticoke Area, annually a contender, is rebuilding after losing
Dan Grabinski and Keith Jablonski.
Senior Eric Bieski is an outstanding performer
and coach Deb Krupinski will look to him to lead a young squad.
Its safe to say Eric is one of the
best setters in the league, said Krupinski, whose team was 9-6 last
year. Right now its tough. We have lots of talented young
players but they lack experience. I feel well develop as the season
We have lots of freshmen with ability but
they lack knowledge of the game.
Junior Mark Harvey is another player Krupinski
will rely heavily on.
