Hamburg head volleyball coach Brian Carroll believes his lineup is getting better everyday. Over the course of last week, his team proved its coach right.
The Bulldogs followed a four-set win against rival Frontier during the week, with a championship at the Sweet Home Tournament on Sept. 21. After winning 10 consecutive sets to reach the final, Hamburg had to come down from a set down to Clarence to win the final in three.
Senior Patrick Stroh, who has stepped up his play and figured a lot out this season, according to his coach, was named the tournament most valuable player, while teammate Zack Yerrington was also on the all-tournament team. Against Frontier, Trevor Vail stepped up to lead Hamburg. The Bulldogs are battling for the top spot in ECIC Division I.
“The guys have been taking turns with steps up,” Carroll said. ‘If they all step up at once, we’re going to be tough to beat.”
