The Performance of the Week for the week of May 22-28 was the varsity boys volleyball team’s win over the Saint Francis Troubadours, the NorCal tournament’s #1 seed and the fifth-ranked team in the nation. The Tigers beat the Troubadours 3-1 and advanced to the final game against Bellarmine College Prep at Dublin High School last Saturday.

The first set was a close one, but the Tigers managed to come out of it with a 26-24 victory to put themselves up 1-0.

The Troubadours bounced back in the second set and beat the Tigers 25-16 to tie the match 1-1. This was the Tigers’ first set-loss since league began back in early March, but they recovered from it in the third set with a 25-17 win to take a 2-1 lead.

The boys were down by large margin in the fourth set until they went on a 10-point run to go ahead. This run proved crucial as it allowed the Tigers to win the fourth and final set 25-18, clinching the 3-1 victory.

Coach Marco Salcedo had a rough game plan for the boys heading into the matchup.

“They’ve got a Division I outside hitter that’s a big, big name so we’re gonna have to go after him to put him out of the system a little bit,” Salcedo said.
