ESS volleyball team enjoys success in third season
As Karluk’s one-man volleyball team, David Reft spends a lot of time in front of a wall. He bounces a ball off a wall. He sets a ball off a wall. He bumps a ball off a wall. It is easy to understand his excitement when he leaves Karluk — a town of about 37 residents, 88 miles southwest of Kodiak city — to join the rest of his teammates on Kodiak’s Emerging Small Schools mix-6 volleyball team. His teammates also co...
