Serving Up Wins

Team Beats Rival Oak Park
Abbey Bures

Starting off their first year as an official MSHSAA sport, the boys volleyball team swept their first game at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy, and their first official season only went up from there.

“Our season has been very successful so far,” sophomore captain Eli Robinson said. “We have beaten some of the best teams in the city and have also secured the number one seed in our district.”

At the beginning of the season the team played Oak Park High School and lost 2-1, but they came back and took the 3-2 win against their Northmen rival April 30 in their last regular-season match.

“We had never beaten Oak Park before in all the years that we have been a club or a sanctioned sport,” head coach Ken Corum, Ed.D., said. “In a lot of ways it was a very confidence boosting victory for us.”

The players from each team knew one another from club teams, which the team believed contributed to the rivalry.

“It was a really big win because we all know each other from playing club, and we know they’re some of the best people we are going to play all season, and we lost against them in the Jamboree, so we were really in for revenge,” sophomore Lawson Stuhlsatz.

The team was proud of the progress they made and looked to continue growth.

“I am very proud of this team and how much we have improved and grown together,” Robinson said.

The regular season ended with a 15-8-1 record.
