Mater Dei’s Attack is Too Quick for Dos Pueblos

Mater Dei's quick attack was too much for Dos Pueblos, and the Chargers lost in four sets in a CIF-Southern Section Division 1 boys volleyball match in Santa Ana on Tuesday. The scores were 25-14, 23-25, 25-16, 25-15.

"We battled, clawed, and scrapped against a spread out and quick Mater Dei team," DP coach Ehren Hug said. "They ran a super fast offense and we tried our best to adjust, just a bit too late a few times. They should do well in the playoffs and we wish them the best of luck."

Dos Pueblos finishes the season with a 20-5 record.

Curren Malhotra led the Chargers with 16 kills and one dig, followed by senior opposite Gabe Hendlin with five kills and senior middle blocker Marcellous Gossett with four kills and three big blocks. 

Senior setter Alex Cheng and junior setter Parker Crossland shared setting duties, with  Cheng notching 21 assists and two digs, while Crossland was good for 14 assists and two digs.

"Cheng concluded a great season with balls being zipped all over the court, making his attackers look like studs one last time," said Hug.

The coach acknowledged "the tireless effort of my two assistant coaches Larry Vranish and Derek Martinez. The three of us are truly a team as coaches. Derek and LV are dedicated, passionate, and extremely knowledgeable about the sport. They deserve a ton credit for the success of the team this season and the program over the last four years. It was an honor for the three of us to be at the helm again this season and we are looking forward to the 2018 season with positivity."

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!
