Tonight the Central Falcons traveled to Kenosha Tremper to start the boys volleyball season.

You would not have known that this was an opener listening to the fans and the raucous cheers from both sides. The Falcons showed signs of a comeback, but the Trojans took energy from their home fans to prevail. The Trojans took the season opener from the Falcons 3-1, by scores of 25-22. 25-22, 23-25, 25-20.

Both teams showed some rust with spotty serving, and other unforced errors, but in the end the defense of the Trojans keyed their conference win.

This was the return of the Falcons to the court from their first ever State appearance where they finished third. The Falcons return a strong lineup of letter winners: Mike Michelau, returning to the court after suffering a severe injury in December; Caleb Mobile, coming back from a serious illness earlier this spring; Sam Picchietti; Brooks Gahart; Jake Stetson; Eric Spangler; Regan Hess; along with newcomers, Brett Larson, Tim Vanderwerff.

The Falcons have an experienced coaching staff led by Wayne Schulz, Dave Mobile, Bobbie Santelli, and Meg Calzaverra, to get them on the track to another winning season.
