On Wednesday, March 20, the varsity boys volleyball team fought against the Glenbrook South Titans, ultimately coming up short in a 2-0 loss.

In the first set, the Titans took an early lead and kept it the entire time, with the Wildcats falling short in the end 25-17. 

“They’re really positive kids,” Ms. Jenny Smith, the head coach of the team for ten years, said. “I think that we just have to mesh together a little bit better so that maybe by midseason, we’re going to be cruising.”

The second set was much closer. Whenever Glenbrook South scored a point, the Wildcats followed, both teams making sure neither got more than a point ahead of the other. Eventually, the Titans emerged victorious 25-19, ending the whole game with a 2-0 loss for the home team.

“I think there’s definitely room for improvement,” junior Justin Howell (4), a defensive specialist and outside hitter, said. “[We] just need to get some more reps in the gym and find the connection between us players.”

Junior Aarav Bamrolia (7), a setter, said that he thinks “being friends outside of [volleyball], not only when you’re in the gym makes a big difference.”

Despite the team’s loss, Coach Smith knows they have the potential to do better and improve.

“These guys have great skill and we just [have] to start putting it together to start playing better,” Coach Smith said.

The Wildcats will next play against the Carmel Corsairs, on Tuesday, April 2.
