Villanova kills Carp spikers,
by Misty Volaski
After only four games, Villanova's undefeated boys' varsity
volleyball team has already made its presence known in the Condor
Last Friday's game clearly showed the Wildcats' dominance on
the court, where they took the Warriors in every match but one.
Villanova cleaned up in the first match, 15-3. After losing their
rhythm in the second match (8-15), the Wildcats regrouped and
won the third and fourth, 15-10 and 15-5.
Senior Cole Gibson of Villanova led his team in kills, with 24.
He also had seven blocks.
"Cole has had an outstanding season so far. He's definitely
one of the top players in this area," coach Jason Burt said
of Gibson's last year with the team.
Junior co-captain John Bluhm had 12 kills on the night to go
with his 15 digs. He also had 14 serving points.
As one of the younger players, sophomore Nate Langelier showed
his spiking power, finishing with 11 kills.
As usual, setter Roy Kuwata was all over the court, with 42 assists.
"The difference (in this game) was our defense. We kept
rallies alive that they didn't expect us to," Burt said.
"Everyone played well. We're in a building phase."
If they're still in a building phase, you can expect even bigger
things this year than before - the 'Cats have a 4-0 record so
far and have aspirations of going far in CIF post-Condor League
