The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake volleyball team took time to honor the victims of 9/11 .
Varsity members, many of whom weren't even born when the attack happened, planted 250 flags on Friday after practice.
Head coach Gary Bynon says it's important the team dedicates some time to the community.
"It's up to us as adults,” Bynon said. “I mean, these kids weren't born on 9/11, so it's important for us as adults to make sure we never forget. That we let them know about how important that day, how important it is to remember."
"We can have a lot of empathy for the people we lost that day and just respect for everybody and all the first responders who saved so many lives 'cause I think a lot of times we focus on the 3,000 something lives that were lost instead of the lives that were saved,” Carlie Rzeszotarski, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake volleyball player, said. “And so, it was obviously a tragic event, but it's good that we remember it and still have respect for those people."
The Burnt Hills soccer team also stopped practice to participate.
