Despite battling valiantly in a two set match, the 18th seeded Scouts bowed out to the #2 seed Barrington Broncos in the IHSA Regional Semifinal of the Deerfield Regional, which feeds into the Palatine High School Sectional. Barrington, the MSL Champion in boys volleyball, is led by a strong attack and several long, powerful outside hitters.
Though the Scouts lost in straight games, it was one of their better performances of the season, battling the highly-touted Broncos within in 3 points in both games. Barrington will advance to play Deefield, the regional host, in the Regional Final tonight at Deerfield High School.
The loss served as the final match in the careers of Max Doerfler, Alex Habjan, Nick Gulson, Brian Stickler, and Tobias Frost.
