After winning twice in the St. Louis Classic, the Borgia boys volleyball Knights are still hunting for their first regular season win.
Borgia did receive good news from the St. Louis Classic organizers this week as Michael Ince was named to the all-tournament team.
“He was great in the tournament and did extremely well,” said Borgia Head Coach CJ Steiger. “He blocked everything. He was the most impressive hitter we had in kills. He had a really good day Friday in our two pool wins and that put us into the gold pool on Saturday. We started against one of the best teams in the tournament and played one of our best matches all year.”
The Knights fell Wednesday at Duchesne, 25-19, 25-19, and Thursday at Bayless, 25-15, 25-14.
Borgia fell to 2-8 on the season with the losses.
“Against Duchesne, we played pretty well,” Steiger said. “I thought we could have played better. We played more aggressively in that match.”
Against Bayless, it was a different story.
“We beat ourselves,” Steiger said. “We missed serves and made unforced mistakes. There is a lot of stuff we need to clean up on our side of the net.
