Varsity Volleyball lost to Gilman in a SWELTERING contest on Wednesday night. The young volleyball team was led by returning seniors Molinar, Lichtenstein and Soudry. Jake Trone had a strong showing in his first match as Varsity setter in the wild, pressure cooker atmosphere of Gilman's old gym. SP struggled to shake the first game jitters losing the first two sets 9-25 and 8-25. In the 3rd set, SP finally showed the exciting promise of a great team and buoyed by the strong fan base rallied to a 21-25 in the third set. Volleyball plays again Friday at Calvert Hall.
