Nativity BVM High School Class of 1969 Donation
Members of the Nativity BVM High School Class of 1969 recently presented a check for $2,500.00 to school Principal, Mrs. Lynn Sabol, to be used for the school’s newly established Endowment Fund through the Nativity Preservation Support Foundation. The monies were collected during the Class of 1969’s 50th Class Reunion. The class encourages all alumni to continue to support our Alma Mater for enhancing the spiritual, academic, social and athletic choices in the region. Thanks so much!
Dear Nativity BVM Green Wave Volleyball Community:
What an incredible ride this season has been for us! From the first summer session to the last point of the season, we practiced and played with an enthusiasm, belief and competitive spirit that represented something bigger than ourselves. Our team prides itself on our grit, fight and ability to get back up every time we are knocked down. We attempt to stay calm under pressure and strong and focused through adversity. That is the Nativity way! Our team would not be where we are today without your support, dedication and example.
This historic volleyball journey was made possible because of an entire village of people and their unwavering belief in us. From the Green and Gold Club (especially Cathy and Diane) and the Green Wave Association to the other sports teams at our school, from other Schuylkill League Volleyball programs, coaches, players and parents to other schools in our Diocese and County, from the Pottsville Republican newspaper, reporters (especially Chuck Curley) and photographers to our faithful alumni, from Mountain Valley Golf Course and Cotler VIP Tours to R&J Transportation (especially Missy Shaw), from fantastic Facebook and social media posts to superb team meals, from Holly’s team photos to the concession crew, from fire truck parades and escorts to our sensational fans in the stands, from our AD, Mr. Muldowney, athletic department and trainer Christian to our awesome “bus crew”, from Chris’s extraordinary training and Jay and Hayden’s practice work to our assistant coaches Jenn, Michelle and Derf, from Mrs. Sabol, Father Dave, Bobby, our Governance Board and the Nativity faculty and staff to our fabulous past volleyball players and parents, from our fantastic families to our terrific student body-please know that what we have achieved this volleyball season is not only for you, but because of you. Most importantly, this accomplishment is for Nativity High School. We were the “little team that could” because we are the “little school that could.”
Getting to the pinnacle of the volleyball world has not been an easy feat. We had to go through the pain and heartache of those 5 set losses to Marian Catholic in past years and last season’s loss to Berlin in the State Semifinals to truly value and appreciate what it means to be where we are today. Our girls have always played with heart, and against Northern Cambria, we came out with everything we had and left it all out on the floor, especially in the 3rd set. The little girls we once were who picked up a volleyball because of the love of the game are so very proud of how far we have come and the players we are today. It has been an honor to represent Nativity High School and earn the title of 2019 PIAA Class A State Runner-Up. We are a part of Nativity history for eternity and, for us, we will forever know that dreams really do come true! Thank you all for helping us make our dream a reality!
