Hopewell HS Boys Volleyball Battle, but Drop 4-Set Decision to Moon



After a dominating win last Thursday against Trinity High School, our Hopewell Vikings suffered a tough loss Tuesday evening against the Moons Tigers. 

The boys were looking forward to their second win last night, but ended up losing in four sets, winning the first one and losing the next three. Last night’s top performers were junior setter Paul Thompson (WPIAL Class 2A player of the week), senior captain outside hitter Seth Young, sophomore right side hitter Jake Pollick, senior captain libero Richy Polovina, and sophomore outside hitter Alex Alvarado.
