Eagles volleyball team continues its streak with win against Pinecrest

Winners of 10 consecutive matches, Boulder City High School boys volleyball routed Pinecrest Academy Cadence 3-0 on April 6.

Dominating their opponent 25-9, 25-3, 25-5, the Eagles advanced to 20-4 on the season, continuing to build confidence.

“The boys have really bonded and started to rely on each other to become one team, not six individuals,” head coach Rachelle Huxford said. “Together their play is tough and decisive and their resolve to win another state title is even stronger.”

Seeking their third consecutive 3A state championship, the Eagles will look to close out the regular season strong, hosting Clark on Friday, before traveling to Western on Tuesday.
