Varsity boys’ volleyball lost against Homestead in five sets today at Blackford, dropping their overall record to 14-10.

Harker took the lead early, winning the first set 25-22. From there, the two teams traded victories, with Homestead winning the second set 25-12, and Harker taking the third, 25-20. Homestead went on to win the fourth set 25-22 to tie the game up at 2-2, before securing the fifth set 15-10.

Chris Gong (10) thought the team started the game off well but could have played better towards the end.

“I think we could have just [played harder] towards the end a little more, because we started falling apart near the end and started making a couple too many errors,” Chris said. “But other than that, I think it was a pretty good match.”

Jeffrey Kwan (9) believed that team chemistry was also a problem in the game, as the lineup went through significant changes prior to the game.

“We never played together,” Jeffrey said. “We should work on our system a little more, because we didn’t really know how to play together, and we only had five minutes of practice together, so that was hard. [But] we came together as a team, played against a really really good team: Homestead, and we came really close, so that was good.”

Head coach Alex Jones did not see this as a failure, but instead, as a success.

“It was the best we’ve played as a team all season,” Jones said. “We played a new lineup tonight, and we took one of the best teams in five [sets]. We had an opportunity to beat them in four, but what’s most important is that we were able to go out there and play like a team. Everyone was able to buy into the game plan.”

The team hosts Saratoga High School at Blackford next Wednesday, April 26th.
