The Gehlen Catholic volleyball team is not used to being underdogs going into a matchup with Remsen St. Mary’s. By ranking, they were on Tuesday night and still came away with a dominant straight-set win spoiling Remsen St. Mary’s senior night festivities.
Going in, it was expected to be a tough match. The Hawks were ranked tenth in Class 1A while Gehlen Catholic had not lost a conference match to start the year. Gehlen Catholic head coach Dan Goebel says he did not know what to expect from the match going in.
The complete game was the culmination of a lot of work through the first chunk of the season. Coach Goebel says it was nice to see the team put every aspect together during a match.
The Hawks have prided themselves on some very strong attackers to start the season. Gehlen Catholic met them with a block that slowed down their attack for most of the night. Coach Goebel says patience was key to getting a good block up against the Hawks.
The Jays remain in a tie for first in the conference race with their league record at 6-0 heading into another matchup this week with Trinity Christian. Coach Goebel says practice is key to make sure they continue to play their best for the rest of the season.
First serve between the Jays and Tigers will be at 7:00 PM on Thursday night at the Deb Campbell Memorial Gym.
