Boys volleyball bested by WJ 3–0

By Daniel Weber

[score id=”49482″ align=”right”] The boys volleyball team (1–3) fell to the Walter Johnson Wildcats (4–1) Monday 3–0, losing in straight sets, but showing signs of improvement.

The Vikings fought valiantly in the first set, earning 15 points. The next two sets proceeded similarly as the Vikes could not overcome the Wildcat offensive.

However, the score does not do the team’s effort justice, as the team progressed in multiple areas.

“[We had] much better passing, setting, and hitting,” defensive specialist Joe Wiedemann said. “We just need to improve our game IQ to know what to do in various situations.”

The team also cleaned up the inconsistencies that set them back in previous contests.

“The unforced errors were held to a minimum,” setter Stefan Greenberg said. “WJ actually had to earn their points and that was indicative that we as a team are growing.”

This improvement is crucial for a team that still has limited experience.

“We all agree that the team is better than it was at this point last year, so we’re excited and optimistic moving forward,” Wiedemann said.

The Vikings travel to challenge Richard Montgomery Wednesday at 5:30.
