The boys’ volleyball team dropped a 3-0 match to Alemany at home Tuesday night on senior night. The Wolverines’ current records are 5-7 in league play and 6-10-1 overall.

“Even though we didn’t get the win we wanted and struggled with little errors here and there, I can’t say enough about these seniors,” setter and Chronicle staff writer Will Mallory ’20 said. “They bring an energy to the team that will never be duplicated, and all of us will miss them very much next year.”

Although dropping all three sets, the Wolverines put up a good fight against the Warriors during the first set. The team lost the first set 22-25 but lost momentum in the second  set, losing 11-25. The Wolverines challenged the Warriors towards the end of the third set, in attempt to win before dropping the third set 17-25.

“This wasn’t our best game but we still came together as a team to celebrate the departing seniors one last time,” middle hitter Griffin York ’19 said. “Our team is going to have to be a lot more efficient next year as we have very little depth. A lot of the guys are practicing passing or serving that wouldn’t normally be, because next year they will have to.”

The Wolverines will face Notre Dame on May 2 at home to determine if the team is eligible for playoffs.

“We still have one more match tomorrow to determine if we make playoffs or not, so hopefully we can pull it all together for one final push,” Mallory said.
