Junior captain Seba Sani jumps up for a spike to help his team add points to their score. Sani helped WJ win this game to add to their impressive record.

Sebastiano (Seba) Sani, boys volleyball captain, has proved himself a star player this season. Sani has led the team to a historical season as they wrapped up their season with a tough loss in the county championship.
The boys have a 42-7 set record and a 14-1 game record as they took the loss in the county championship vs Clarksburg. Sani recently announced his commitment to pursue his athletic and academic career at the number one ranked school for boys volleyball in the country, Long Beach State University.
LBSU is a Division One college located in Long Beach, California which holds an estimated 35-40k students. Sani had other offers from Ohio State University, George Mason University and University of California Irvine.
“I chose LBSU because it is the number one school in the country for volleyball and it would be the best path to take to become a pro. Also they offered me the most money,” Sani explained.
Sani isn’t the only tall member in his family. Francesco Sani, Seba’s brother, stands at 6’8’’ and is currently one of the best players on the University of California Irvine’s volleyball team. Sani has plenty of room to grow and he looks forward to following his brothers footsteps in becoming a Division One volleyball player and All-American, while only playing 30 minutes away.
Sani has been a goalie for WJ soccer all previous years of his high school career. Although Sani has been a dual sport athlete all throughout high school he can no longer pursue his goalie career into his senior year. “I’m going to miss playing with the boys on the field, but I have to take my priorities more seriously,” Sani said.
