The boys varsity volleyball team traveled to Northmont High School on Friday night to open their season against two area powerhouses in Archbishop Alter and Northmont. The boys knew they had their work cut out for them as they only returned four players from last year’s Regional Finalist and would have to learn “on the fly.” Unfortunately, when you open up against multi-state champion Alter and always powerful Northmont, there is not a lot of room to do that. The boys found that out on Friday night as the Knights beat them 2-0 in the opener and the Thunderbolts beat them 2-1 in the nightcap.
Now 0-2 on the year, the team is back in action on Thursday night here at CHS when they welcome another perennial powerhouse in Cincinnati St. Xavier. The JV B and JV A games get underway at 5:30 PM and will be followed by the varsity at 6:45 PM.
