Victory boosts tenacity
The men’s volleyball team has been able to keep up with its opponents this season, holding an 11-13 record overall.
Recently, the team traveled to the east coast March 13-14 to take on Harvard University and Sacred Heart University in non-conference matchups. The No. 15-ranked Lancers swept the other team in three sets.
Derek Schmitt, head coach of the volleyball team, admitted to the strength of Sacred Heart’s team, but said he was proud of his team and how they performed.
“(Sacred Heart) did a nice job in the first set, digging up a lot of balls and making it tough for us,” Schmitt said in a press release. “After that, it seemed like we were in pretty good control. We put them in tough situations with our serving.”
Emmett Enriques, freshman undeclared major and libero, made an impression on the Pioneer’s court, recording 12 digs in just three sets. With their past successes in away games, Enriques said he is confident in his team.
“We do very well at away games,” Enriques said. “However, we really need to work on our confidence because we definitely have the skill to beat every team.”
The Lancers will go against University of California, Irvine, March 30 at home
