The Catholic Central senior boys volleyball team christened their new gym with a 2-1 victory over Walkerville on the opening day of the season.
"It feels amazing." said first year senior Ahmad Altalid. "The last gym was dark. Now it's bright. Amazing. So clean."
The Comets were squeeky clean winning the first set 25-16. The Tartans rebounded to take the second set 26-24 setting the stage for an exciting tie-breaker. Both teams put together strong runs before going back and forth for the final few points. CCH took the rubber match 25-23 in front of a loud crowd.
"The energy got hyped up. Our fans helped us out and we just got the victory." said Joseph Alhoush, one of three senior returning from last year Tier 2 championship team. "Very encouraged. We're practicing a lot. We're trying to progress every practice, every game."
CCH went 10-0 during the regular season a year ago. Tuesday's win was a good start for a team trying to establish a new identity. "I hope in the future we win more games." said Altalid.
The Comets are back in action Thursday at Brennan when they take on the Cardinals.
