Boys Volleyball Wins; Ranked Seventh in Region

The boys varsity volleyball team defeated Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School Tuesday, earning a slot in The Virginian-Pilot’s Top 10 area teams.

The Oaks are 9-3 and ranked seventh, the highest private school on the list, just behind Grassfield and ahead of Maury.

The scores in their win over Bishop Sullivan were 25-11, 26-24, and 25-23.

Sean Peterson, who is about 70 percent of the offense most games, had 24 kills and six digs. “Sean is the most dominating player in the TCIS and one of the best players in the region,” says Coach Tonya Boser.

Vince Thomas, moved to setter from hitter this season, had a career-high 36 assists, four kills and two solo blocks.

“Vince Thomas continues to show his incredible athletic ability in his first year as a setter,” Boser says. “Last season Vince was our number two scoring hitter but due to the transfer of our former setter, Vince took over as setter and is a serious threat when setting from the front row as all of his kills come from attacking on the second ball.”
Teddy Rich chipped in eight kills while Cabell Thomas had 11 digs.

“Teddy Rich is a workhorse in the front row and combines with Vince in blocking to put up a huge wall and Teddy has a hammer for an arm, adding an average of six kills each match,” Boser says.

“Cabell Thomas continues to grow and develop on defense, passing very accurately on serve-receive (passer rating of 3+),” she adds.

The statistics from the match:
Sean Peterson: 24 kills, 6 digs
Vince Thomas: 36 assists, 2 solo blocks, 2 block assist, 4 kills, 2 service aces
Teddy Rich: 8 kills, 1 block solo, 1 block assist, 4 digs, 3 service aces
Will Daniel: 3 kills, 1 block solo, 1 service ace, 2 assists
Ron White: 2 block assist, 3 kills, 2 service aces
Nick Curtis: 1 kill, 4 digs
Cabell Thomas: 11 digs
Gray Cotrell: 1 block assist
Philip Trapini: 2 digs
James Dublin: 1 service ace
Mark Jamias: 1 kill, 1 dig
