Newport Harbor High boys volleyball team loses to Westlake on Saturday
The Newport Harbor High boys volleyball team could not make it to the semi finals of the CIF Southern Section Division I match that is scheduled to be played on Tuesday.
Despite the fact that the Sailors put in a commendable fight that took the match to five long and thrilling sets, it still was not enough to upset Westlake in their onward march towards a 3-2 win.
After the Saturday’s quarter-final reached its close and Westlake started celebrating its hard earned win by giving hoots of joy while the Sailors were heading out of the courts with heads hung low, the scoreboard read 26-28, 25-20, 24-26, 25-19 and 15-10.
With their recent win, Westlake has been able to tally a total number of 28 wins in this season so far. These victories have been registered at the cost of suffering losses that amount to four. In contrast to the performance statistics of Westlake, the overall
season record of the Sailors fall pale. The number of times that the Sailors have been able to bag themselves victories total to be 24. These wins have been accomplished at the cost of experiencing a total number of nine defeats.
The players that stood prominent amongst the Sailors line-up were Cody Caldwell, Ian Sequeira, Rusty Sary and Kevin Rakestraw. Caldwell is a senior on the Sailors team and was able to help by posting a total of 32 kills. Not only did Caldwell help in the
offense, he also registered 10 digs as well as three service aces.
Caldwell was supported by his teammate Sequeira, who helped the Sailors by making a total of 35 assists. Not only did Sequeira make the assists he also made his presence felt by adding eight digs and three blocks. Sary kept the scoreboard ticking by posting
15 kills of his own. Not only did he contribute in the kills section, Sary also made 17 digs as well as four blocks. Rakestraw also did his part by adding seven kills to the score board.
Sadly for Newport Harbor, this is not the first time that the Sailors have been halted at the quarterfinals. It is for the second consecutive time that the Sailors will not be progressing to the semi finals of the tournament.
“The fifth game we just got down 4-1 and we were playing catch-up the whole time,” Sailors Coach Dan Glenn said. “We were playing even after that. I thought the last two games we didn't play poorly. But [the Warriors] just played well. I knew this would
be a tough match. That's what makes Division I so fun. That's what makes it so exciting.”
