Looking to close the season out in successful fashion, the boys volleyball team (23-7) played two non-conference games against the Wolves of Niles West (19-14), and the Antioch Sequoits (11-17). The Scouts missed hitter Joe Chamberlain in both games with a back injury.
The team headed south to Skokie to play Niles West on the Wolves’ home court. The Scouts squeaked out the W in one of their tighter games of the year with the help of strong play by Kevin Lamp. They won in two competitive sets (25-22, 31-29).
After the long hiatus of prom, the boys were back in action last night against Antioch in yet another away game. Lamp had a game-high 18 kills, but Kyle Waggoner was the the talk of the town, picking up where Chamberlain left off as he contributed with 7 slams. They won in two sets and reached their 23rd win of their season. With one game remaining, the Scouts look to extend their 4-game win streak into the playoffs where they play on Tuesday, May 22 after a first-round bye. The Scouts managed to secure a 4-seed in their sectional, just shy of Libertyville (#1) and Stevenson (#3). Free free to scope out the IHSA Boys Volleyball Playoff Bracket on IHSA.org
