He-Man volleyball saw some tough teams take the court Wednesday, October 7, but only one went home victorious. For the second year in a row, the class of 2011 took home the first place title.

The night started off with the seniors and freshmen facing off against one another. Although the freshmen put forth a valiant effort this game ended like it does every year with the freshmen losing. The final score was 20- 13.

The next match saw the juniors and sophomores competing to see who would make it to the championship game. The junior’s starters came out with a vengeance against the sophomores. The sophomores had difficulty mounting any kind of offense against the onslaught from the juniors The final score was 20-9

The sophomores and freshmen then battled to claim the third-place title. The sophomores were triumphant, beating the Freshmen 20-11.

Tensions ran high in the championship game as seniors and Juniors contested to take home the title. The juniors used their starters once again, namely Anders Pace, Sterling Snow, and Tyler Cox, to gain a 10 point lead. The seniors finally stepped it up, but their effort was too little too late. The juniors beat the seniors 25-20 and took first place for the second year running.

“My performance was exceptional,” said senior Terrell Messerly, “If we would have had five more performances like mine we would have had it in the bag from the get-go,” Messerly added, “I wanted the He-Man championship more than anything, more than a million dollars.”

Juniors were confident of the win from the beginning. “We were better than the Seniors,” said Snow “That’s why we won.”

Next year the class of 2011 plans on taking home the gold once again, or as Snow puts it “hello three-peat.”
