LESSONS LEARNED AT THE NET AS VOLLEYBALL FALLS TO ROOSEVELT

RIVERSIDE: With a 6-13 overall record, the boys volleyball season didn’t go as anyone, certainly not Coach Lough, would have wanted or anticipated.  Adversity seemed to accompany her boys from the first match in March to the season’s end, which happened on Wednesday night on their home court boards.  The team lost to Roosevelt in

DOG FIGHT LEAVES WOLVES WOUNDED

CORONA: The boys volleyball team was on the road again on Friday and again, faced a tough opponent in Centennial High School.  The Huskies got the upper hand from the first set and defeated the Wolves in four sets. “We had another tough opponent” said head coach Sondra Lough.  The defeat leaves King at 2-7

SECOND ROUND GOALS GET SERVED AT HILLCREST

RIVERSIDE:  The newest high school in Riverside is Hillcrest and they haven’t taken long to build one of the best, if not the best boys volleyball teams in the city.  Hillcrest sits in first place in the league and Coach Sondra Lough’s boys from King knew what they were up against as they rumbled westbound on

VOLLEYBALL NEVER FINDS RHYTHM, GETS BEAT

NORCO:  On the road, against Norco, Coach Lough knew her team was up against an imposing challenge. “Its tough winning on the road sometimes” she said, “but especially in Norco’s environment.” The Wolves would drop an important match in 4 sets, 20-25, 25-19, 17-25 and 19-25.
