After losing seven seniors last year, the boys’ volleyball team starts off its season with an overall record of 7-6 and a league record of 3-2.

Adam Black succeeded Nigel Dookhoo as head coach of the young team, which has two sophomores and five juniors.

He has been the head coach of the girls’ volleyball team for two years, leading them to two undefeated Mission League seasons. Against Loyola, the number two ranked team on ESPN Rise’s FAB 50, the team put up a fight, losing the first game 18-25, the second 20-25, and the third 22-25.

The team practices three times a week with two games in between each practice, said Spencer Eichler ’11.

“I expect the team to put forth their best effort to improve and compete everyday. Everyone we play is a test. Doesn’t matter who it is or who they have,” Head Coach Adam Black said.

“We have a good group of guys who treat each other with respect. We have been making improvements in a lot of areas of our game and that is a big factor for us,” Black said.
