A harsh defeat at the hands of Barrington last night has ripped the MSL Championship from the reach of the boys volleyball team.

Despite a tight scoreboard in the opening of the first game, Barrington claimed the championship title over the Huskies in two games with scores of 25-19 and 25-18.

“It was a tough loss,” senior and team cocaptain Vince Reisel said.  He did, however, praise Barrington for playing a fair game.  “They played really clean – hats off to them,” he said.

Fellow senior and cocaptain Justin Hong acknowledged the faults in the team’s performance.  “I didn’t think, personally, we played our best game,” he said.

He stressed the need for his team to take a lesson from this game.  “We gotta take this loss to heart and we gotta come ready.”

Both players anticipated facing Barrington at next Friday’s semi-final.  To do that, the MSL East division victors will have to defeat first Wheeling and then either Carmel or Warren in the regional semi-finals and finals.

Coach Nancy Lill did not shy away from criticism.  “We didn’t play tonight,” she said.  “Barrington was a better team.”

She shared Hong’s impression of the evening, describing her team’s play as “a really sloppy game.”

Coach Lill also dispelled any notion that the team’s upcoming regional semi-final game was just a stepping stone to facing Barrington again.  “We respect Wheeling,” she said.  “Wheeling’s a very good team.”

“At this point in the season, you gotta take everyone seriously,” she added.
