The varsity boys volleyball team traveled to Middletown High School for the opening round of the 2019 OHSBVA Regional tournament on Tuesday night. The Elks were hoping the third time would be the charm for them as they had fallen to Fairmont twice already during the regular season. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be.
The Elks came out strong in the first set, but faded a bit down the stretch as the Firebirds took set one, 25-17. Undeterred, the boys kept battling and found a way to win the second set, 25-22, to tie the match at a set apiece. The next two sets were back-and-forth battles the entire way as neither team would back down. Unfortunately for the Elks, the Firebirds made a few more plays and won both sets by identical, 25-20, scores to take the match, 3-1.
The loss ended a very frustrating season for the Elks who finished with a 5-20 record. Congratulations to the two graduating seniors and thank you for everything you have given to this program. Best of luck in all of your future endeavours.
