DHS’ volleyball win streak reaches five matches

ELK GROVE — Ahead of a Tuesday home showdown with Grant — the other top team in the Delta Valley Conference — the Davis High boys volleyball team won its fourth consecutive match on Thursday at Franklin.

And, for the second outing in a row, the Blue Devils (11-4, 5-1) had to come back from the brink of defeat to post a five-game victory.

After DHS topped the Wildcats, 25-23, 22-25, 16-25, 25-18, 15-11, co-coach Jordon Friend credited his two captains: junior Evan Meerscheidt and senior Andre Foster.

“Evan did a good job of leading the team through a couple of tough games,” Friend explained. “He hit some great second balls, ran the offense and had five kills.

“Andre had a personal-best 17 kills. He is really establishing himself as a go-to hitter and someone the team can really count on.”

The Devils also displayed a scrappy defense as junior Dominic Fannijiang — who went on several long serving runs — made his presence felt in that area of the court. With Fannijiang directing traffic, junior Milton Hong contributed six digs and sophomore Sam Bailey was a force at the net, finishing with three blocks and redirecting many other Franklin attempts.

Now, Davis will prepare for a Tuesday (5 p.m.) match that will be a can’t-miss event for Blue Devil sports fans.

In addition to hoping for a big crowd to spur them on, the Blue Devils will be preparing for DVC leader Grant by working on blocking and third-ball accuracy.
