The Chillicothe Cavaliers Boys Volleyball team improved their record to (6-7) after a 3-0 victory at Miamisburg on Monday night (25-23, 25-17, 25-12).
Even though the Cavs started slow in the first set, they maintained control of the match with a season high 32 kills during the three sets.
With Andrew Benson out due to injury, the workload at middle fell to Tanner and Hayden Cutright. While Senior Tanner Cutright led the team with 13 kills, freshman Hayden Cutright contributed 3 kills in his second varsity match where he was required to play significant minutes.
Another attacking standout was Junior Right Side attacker Max Krieger with 7 kills and Senior Hunter Maughmer with 16 assists. “We were able to move the ball around to lots of our hitters tonight” said Coach Andrew Vitatoe. “They had a pretty good block in a few of their rotations, but we were able to take advantage of our matchups in several rotations to avoid their main blockers.”
Chillicothe will face Middletown at home on Wednesday, May 8th at 6pm.
