Cate Volleyball Falls to Pacifica Christian in Five Sets

Cate volleyball coach Greg Novak saw good things from his team in a five-set loss against Pacifica Christian. The scores were 22-25, 28-26, 25-20, 16-25, 15-11.

"Tonight was a very positive step in the right direction as far as our overall game," Novak said. "It’s hard to say that to the team after a five-game loss but the guys have worked so hard and have improved so much, we have to forget about the loss and praise ourselves for the progress we’ve made."

Freshman Theo Mack led the Rams with 17 kill and senior setter Chase McCaw added 12 kills.

Novak said Pacifica's outside hitter made the difference in the match. "They fed him sets from every position. We were able to stop him at times but he had a commanding swing for a kill."

Cate is 2-4 overall.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
