Needham’s Burdett leads team by example
Wentworth men’s volleyball coach Evin Giglio says sophomore outside hitter Ross Burdett of Needham has the demeanor and leadership qualities of a captain. The Leopards were 10-6 entering this weekend’s tournament at Springfield College, thanks in large part to Burdett’s team-high 211 kills, along with 113 digs and 16 aces. He ranks 9th nationally in Division 3 with 3.72 kills per game.
