Volleyball falls to Chaminade in five sets

Luke Holthouse

The chances of the boys’ volleyball team earning the coveted second place spot in league took a hit tonight after the team fell in five sets to Chaminade.

The Wolverines came into the match at 6-2 in league play, having beaten Chaminade in straight sets at home earlier in the season. However, when the Wolverines travelled to visit the Eagles, the team was unable to come away with a victory and fell to 6-3.

With powerhouse Loyola expected to go undefeated in league as it did the year before, players have said all year that the goal is to finish in second place in Mission League standings and reap the benefits come playoff seeding time. With Loyola still left on the schedule, the team will need to beat Alemany on Thursday then St. Francis on Tuesday for a legitimate shot at claiming the second spot in league standings.

The Wolverines came out of Spring Break with a record of 5-1, beating every team except Loyola, but have since lost to Chaminade and Notre Dame. However, the team did add a victory over Crespi.
