The boys volleyball team’s season came to an end on Tuesday as the Highlanders were swept by Seneca Valley in the first round of WPIAL playoffs.

The boys volleyball team’s season came to an end on Tuesday as the Highlanders were swept by Seneca Valley in the first round of WPIAL playoffs.

“Seneca Valley is really good,” senior Colin Poe said. “We just couldn’t finish strong enough.”

Poe said the Highlanders weren’t at their best for the game.

“If we had played well, it would have been easier to walk away with a loss,” Poe said.

Overall, though, the team had a successful season and did much better than they had expected, Poe said.

“Next year I’d tell the players to just go out there and have fun,” Poe said. “Don’t get too discouraged by the losses.”

This was the team’s second consecutive year making playoffs, and they also were able to improve some facets of their game.

“This season we played together as more of team, and our defense got a lot better,” senior Colton Barr said. “We definitely just played well as a whole.”

While the team improved on some techniques, Barr said that they “didn’t always play to their fullest potential.”

“Next season we need to work on more aggressive serving and hitting if we want to be better,” Barr said.

“I’m proud of what we’ve done.” Barr said. “There were some ups and downs but we definitely got through it.”
