CRESTVIEW — School's out, but many area high school volleyball players are staying active by playing beach volleyball.

“We see volleyball as our escape,” said Meghan Deitz, 16, of Crestview.

Meghan, a Crestview High School varsity volleyball player, is one of several teenagers competing in local beach volleyball tournaments.

The volleyball skills they learn in the sand can easily transition to the indoor game, the players said.

“It improves your game 100 percent,” Miranda Hohman, 16, said. “This helps you read the ball better.”

'You cannot hide'

Players receive tips from Crestview resident Sam Nimpchaimanatham and his Sand Turtles Volleyball Club. He regularly coaches volleyball at his residence's regulation-sized court.
