The Boys’ Varsity Volleyball athletes are the 2018 NYCAL Tournament champions and regular season co-champions! The Cougars took on Masters School in the tourney finals on Fri., May 11, winning three sets to one to capture the tournament championship title. Calhoun and Masters finished the regular season as co-champions, both teams with a 7-1 record (both dropping a match to each other).
Cougars went into the NYCAL Tournament finals as the #1 seed, taking home court advantage for both the semifinal match against Horace Mann—which Calhoun won 3-1—and the finals against Masters. In the NYCAL finals, Calhoun took the first sets with an aggressive and energetic style, but Masters rallied to take the second. In front of a packed Calhoun gym, the Cougars took control for the next two sets for the 3-1 championship win.
These NYCAL championships set the Cougars up with a spot in next week’s NYSAIS Championship Tournament. The Cougars will play the first round of the state tournament at home on Sat., May 19, 11am.
