Athlete Profile: Nathan Bonifacio

Previously have played right side hitter otherwise known as opposite, Nathan Bonifacio has transitioned from his prior position into varsity’s new setter. Being a setter requires a lot of stamina, perseverance, and most importantly the drive and passion to play for his team. Setters take charge of the court, with the responsibility to touch every ball that gets dug up and perfectly set the ball for the hitter to attack, they become the heart of every play. Defense specialist Jimmy Lee (11) states, “ Him moving into setter honestly garnered a lot of my respect because it’s like the captain of the ship moving over to piloting. I’m happy he’s able to make a smooth transition for both himself and the team as a whole.” With this, Nathan will continue to work hard and make this a great season.
