Sports Roundup: Volleyball squad moves to 5-3 early on

Starting league play off strong, Boulder City High School boys volleyball picked up a pair of dominant victories. Routing both Sloan Canyon and SLAM Academy 3-0, the Eagles advanced to 5-3 on the season.

“I think we’re playing OK for where we are in the season,” head coach Rachelle Huxford said. “We’re still getting the kinks out and clearing cobwebs. It’s only going to get better as the season progresses.”

Routing Sloan Canyon 25-16, 25-14, 25-12 on March 6, seniors Travis Hess and Brady Sorenson generated nine and seven kills, respectively, while senior Roman Rose dished out 21 assists with seven serving aces.

Routing SLAM Academy 25-11, 25-11, 25-11, Hess and Sorenson generated 14 kills and 11 kills, respectively, while Rose dished out 30 assists with six aces.

“Our offense doesn’t function well if Roman isn’t having a good setting day,” Huxford said. “He knows where Travis and Brady are at all times. The three of them are very much in sync, it’s hard to beat them when they’re on. It’s very fun to watch.”
