This past Friday, James River’s boy’s volleyball team went to the state finals at the Siegel Center. They had to defeat many teams to get to this stage, including the team from Grassfield High. Sadly, they lost to Frank Cox High School, but they were still a strong runner-up. The team had mixed feelings about the final results.

“[The team was] obviously disappointed, but they were very happy with what they accomplished because they weren’t supposed to get that far,” said Chip Boone, Director of Student Activities.

Henry Archer was named conference player of the year, and other players, including Kyle Brumbaugh and David Forest, were elected as part of the all star team. The all star team is not an actual competing volleyball team, but more of an honorary title.

The Rapids dropped the first game 27-25, and the second game 25-13. Regardless of the result, the team worked hard this season and congratulations are in order.
