Boys varsity volleyball (7-2) easily beat the Eastlake High School Titans (1-5) 3-1 on Mar. 25.

Co-captains Joey Jones (12) and Kannon Kyle (11) were both unsurprised by the outcome of the game, but disappointed in losing the third game 25-23.

“We got a little overconfident and stopped trying, and they got a little momentum and they won that game,” setter Jones said.

First-year coach Adam Zufinetti agreed that the team’s effort lagged during the third game.

“We … beat them pretty easily in the first game, and the same in the second,” Zufinetti said. “They fought back and beat us … in the third, and then we came back and beat them 25-15 in the end.”

Outside hitter Kyle is confident about the team’s prospects for the remainder of the season.

“I feel like we’re definitely one of the better teams in San Diego and that we should have a good chance at CIF,” Kyle said.

The Falcons played the Carlsbad High School Lancers on Mar. 27 after the Falconer went to press.
