After a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the CHS Boys’ volleyball team has returned ready to win. Returning seniors Joey Balboni, Tony Balboni, Matthew Drinkard, John Muyesser, Scott Urweiler, Andrew Hamilton, and Trey Dolan are all reentering the fray for one last season. 

“My experience thus far has been a blast,” senior setter John Muyesser said. “I’ve really enjoyed practicing with the team and winning games.” 

Head Coach Rob Spier opened up about the difficult matchups of the year that the team will have to find a way to overcome. 

We really have no idea what any of the teams will look like so any game could become a big game for us,” Coach Spier said. “That being said we always want to beat Moorestown and Collingswood, so those two games will be bigger than the rest.” 

Although the boys dominated in their match against Collingswood on May 7, the team suffered a loss to rival Moorestown in their first match of a two-game season series. 

Currently the team is 5-6 and second in the division sitting behind the Moorestown juggernaut at 9-0. The Pirates are comfortably in second place, but they will need to string together a couple of wins in their next couple of games, including another match against Moorestown on May 17.

As a senior, Muyesser is grateful for the opportunities being on the team has provided him.

“Being an athlete helped me meet more people,” Muyesser explained. “…people who I think I would have never talked to before.”

With new talent on the horizon for the volleyball team, this year’s seniors will look to put this team into a playoff spot. Upcoming matches include Monday’s rematch against Moorestown (away) and a home match against Pennsauken on Wednesday.
