The boys volleyball team beat Chaminade High School 3-0 to even out its 2-2 record as the squad nears the halfway point of its season. The team won 25-11, 25-14 and 25-20 in the three match series against the Eagles April 16. 

Junior Tom Baker ’22 reflected on the squad’s second win. 

“Playing Chaminade was a great experience for the team and it was great to see that the hard work put in at practice is paying off,” Baker said. “We were able to come together as a team and our playing felt cohesive.”

With only one senior on its roster, volleyball has a relatively young team. Despite this, Baker says the program is quickly coming together.

“A few of our players are pretty young, but it’s great to see how fast they are growing and learning,” Baker said. “I think that we had the best communication this year and were able to get into a rhythm as a team.”

The Wolverines won its season opener 3-2 against Crespi Carmelite High School March 31 after no competition for more than a year. The team went on to lose 3-0 to Notre Dame April 7 and 3-0 to Loyola April 9, with its win over Chaminade marking a significant positive turn in the squad’s season as they approach the latter half of their season. 

“Overall I’m really happy with how we played and am looking forward to the rest of the year,” Baker said.

Boys volleyball looks to build upon its win in its upcoming game against Crespi Friday, April 23.
