SACRAMENTO — Going on the road to face a talented Grant boys volleyball squad on Thursday, Davis High showed a lot of fight but couldn’t avoid the three-set loss.

The Pacers (11-1, 2-0 Delta Valley Conference) outscored the Blue Devils (7-4, 1-1) by scores of 25-20 and 25-15 in the first two sets and went ahead 24-13 in Game 3.

But, despite being just one point from losing the match, DHS didn’t give up. Instead, junior Evan Meerscheidt went on a huge serving run to bring the Devils to within 24-21, before Grant tallied the clincher.

“They are a a solid team; they’ve won our conference a couple of years in a row,” said Davis coach Jordon Friend. “But our boys played well (Thursday), especially Evan. He was really a leader out there.

“I saw a lot of fight from our guys … but it just wasn’t enough (Thursday).”

Meerschedit also finished with five blocks for the Blue Devils, and got some help from Dominic Fannijang, Richard Lu and Alessandro Sgrelli.

“Dominic was great as our defensive specialist,” Friend said. “Lu played really well all-around and didn’t miss a shot all day. Alex had three blocks early on and was great at the net all day.”

DHS is back on the court Tuesday for a road match at Laguna Creek (5 p.m.).
