EL DORADO HILLS — The Davis High boys volleyball team took a little too long to adjust to Oak Ridge’s fast-paced offense in Thursday’s road match, and the result was the Blue Devils’ first loss of the season.

DHS (5-1) dropped the first game, 25-17, but got back in it with a 25-19 victory in the second set. The host Trojans, however, finished off the match with 25-19 and 25-18 wins.

“It took us a while to get used to their offense,” said Devil coach Jordon Friend. “But it was a great lesson for us. We need to learn to play our best volleyball no matter what is happening on the other side of the net.”

At times Thursday, Davis did just that. In addition to their second-set victory, the locals made some good runs in the fourth game behind the serving of sophomore Nick Simons and freshman Ron Chandi. Simons also contributed some nice kills in the match.

In addition, the Blue Devils played some strong defense, notably by juniors Mike Basso and Eugene Long.

“Mike Basso played great defense and serve-receive, and really brought good energy to the court,” Friend said. “He did a good job keeping us in a lot of rallies.

“Eugene Long came in and had some good blocks in that final game.”

DHS heads back to El Dorado Hills on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. match against Ponderosa, a team that plays a fast-paced offense similar to Oak Ridge’s. Friend said the Devils are excited to take what they learned Thursday and put out an improved performance at Ponderosa.
