The varsity boys volleyball started the season with a win against the Galileo Lions 3-0 on March 20th at home.

The Cardinals started off smoothly while their opponent had a rocky start. They continued to score and won the first set 25-19. According to sophomore outside hitter Benjamin Nhan, the Lions’ mistakes made it easy on the Cardinals. “[The Lions] had a lot of misserves. They gave us a lot of free points,” he said.

With all might to prevent a loss, senior libero and defensive specialist Brandon Chen twists around to return the Lions’ serve.

Despite their steady start, the Cardinals struggled at the beginning of the second set, staying two points behind. Senior libero Brandon Chen attributed this to their lack of teamwork. “There were a lot of miscommunications and that’s why we gave them a couple of points,” Chen said, “but then once we started knowing where we all were on the court, everything just kind of clicked together.” After a timeout, the Cards reboosted their morale and jumped back into the game, winning the set 25-22.

With their momentum picking up, the Cardinals started off the third set strong 7–0 and continued their lead, defeating the Lions 25-19.

Nhan says that the team was defeated by Galileo last year 3-0, so he was apprehensive about this game. Sophomore outside hitter Brandon Bui felt the same coming in, but their strong start assured everyone. “We got a sense of how things were gonna go and from there we played naturally. We played to have fun,” he said.

The Cardinals’ next match will be against the Mission Bears on April 3 at 5:00 p.m. at Lowell.

Kimberly Yee, Photographer

After playing Lowell Varsity Volleyball and seeing all the pictures of us playing and cheering, I wanted to take part in reporting sports for The Lowell. Besides sports, I’d like to improve on taking portraits and try my hand at different styles of photography. Definitely still a novice, you’ll always see me taking pictures of my food before anyone can eat and posting it on my food instagram I share with my sister. I’ll often go on shoots with my friends for fun because who doesn’t love a fun photoshoot? See me in the hallway or not, but I’ll always say hi! I’m just a little shorter than your average photographer;)
