SHINGLE SPRINGS —  Ponderosa’s boys volleyball team knew it faced a formidable opponent for Senior Night Thursday as it took on undefeated Jesuit.

“Tonight we want to play to the best of our ability in the final game of the regular season,” Bruin coach Amy Stocket said before the match. “Over the course of the year our team has really improved and now we are looking forward to the playoffs and doing well. … We want to have a great match tonight against the Delta River League champions.”

Before the match, seniors Thomas Legler, Brock Dyer, Joel Engelmann and Nick Jokerst were honored. The four, who are all going on to college, have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.7.

Once the match got under way, the Bruins, to their credit, gave the Marauders all they could handle before losing in five sets 25-15, 19-25, 25-16, 12-25, 11-15.

With good passing from Jokerst and Dyer and Engelmann setting, Griffin O’Camb racked up a number of kills as Ponderosa took control of the first game and went up 1-0. Ponderosa got off to a slow start in game two and fell behind 5-0 early. The Bruins battled back to go in front 18-17, but Jesuit scored seven of the next eight points on its way to tying the match.

Ponderosa rebounded with hustle in game three, dominating from start to finish to take a 2-1 lead in the match and set its sights on an upset. But the night unraveled in the fourth game as Jesuit turned things around to again even the match and send it into the fifth set tie-breaker.

After the match Jokerst said, “We had a chance to win tonight but we struggled a little over the final two games and let things get away from us. We are a team with great ability though and we think we can do well and go far in the playoffs. Tonight we showed that we have improved through the season and now we are ready for the playoffs.”

Stat leaders: Kills: Jokerst, 19; O’Camb, 14; Dyer, 9. Aces: O’Camb, 3; Jokerst, 2. Blocks: Dyer, 2; O’Camb, Kori Barri, 1. Digs: Jokerst, 12; Duncan Alexander, 8; Riley Moore, 6; Barri, Legler, 4. Serve-receive: Jokerst, 30; O’Camb, Moore, 16.
