Dos Pueblos’ junior varsity boys volleyball team placed second to Mira Costa at this weekend’s JV Tournament at Santa Barbara High.

In pool play, DP beat SBHS(B) 25-22 & 25-17, Harvard-Westlake 25-11 & 25-13, losing 2 to Mira Costa 15-25 & 23-25, splitting with Thousand Oaks 22-25 & 25-14.

In playoffs they beat SMHS 25-17 & SBHS 25-16. DP then lost to Mira Costa in the finals 25-11 & 25-11.

Coach Hug said another well balanced all around effort from our 9 man squad. Our passing and defense was great all day which allowed setter Mark Raphael to get all hitters involved. Kurtis Randmaa, Eli Schulman and Jake Compton had great blocks, and attacks, making use of our back rows hustle anchored by libero Jeffrey Araki who was flying side to side, digging and passing. Ball control from pin hitters Jack Skjervem, Logan Kovarick, Esteban Zepeda, and Brandon Burkhardt?s was fantastic all day long.

These boys played with heart all day long and put together one of the single best sets of the season in a 23-25 loss to a very good Mira Costa team. I am so proud of how they played all day & second place never felt so good!

A special thanks to Takae Araki for submitting this report!!
