Currently on a five-game winning streak, Boulder City High School’s boys volleyball team picked up a trio of victories this week, defeating Coral Academy, Sunrise Mountain and Desert Pines.
Defeating Coral Academy 25-12, 25-10, 26-24, on March 23, junior Brady Sorenson led the Eagles with 14 kills, while junior Travis Hess added 12 kills and three blocks.
Filling in big shoes this season, junior Roman Rose had another solid outing, dishing out 33 assists with four digs, three blocks and three serving aces.
“Roman has stepped up to the plate, filling in some big shoes as our new setter,” head coach Rachelle Huxford said. “I’ve been impressed with his athleticism and IQ on the court. He has really taken over the role and done really well. It’s hard to become a setter after being the Libero the last two years.”
Defeating Sunrise Mountain 25-18, 25-16, 29-27 on March 24, Sorenson generated 16 kills, while Hess added 12 kills. Senior Bret Pendleton added eight kills.
Defensively, Rose and Hess each had four blocks, while junior Ike Pappas made 13 digs. Rose dished out 35 assists, while senior Jared Lamoreaux added four aces.
The Eagles beat Desert Pines 25-5, 25-18, 25-11 on March 28, as Sorenson generated 17 kills, while Rose dished out 33 assists.
Looking to extend their winning streak, the Eagles will host Eldorado today, followed by a trip to the Aggies Tournament this weekend, hosted by 5A Arbor View High School.
