WSC Volleyball Season Preview

Frank Dariano
Webb School of California Volleyball will be looking for its first winning season since 2012. Second year head coach Howie Kalter, who went 6-10 in 2016, says his players have been working hard day in and day out in practice leading up to the start of the season. He says his team overall has had an awesome attitude, especially from players who are learning the fundamentals of volleyball for the first time. For example, Kalter points to Jeffrey Tang ’19, who he says will likely start for the Gauls in his first year of volleyball.

Kalter will have several players from his WSC Water Polo team, which captured a league title last Fall, as key starters on the court. Phil Kraus ’18, Max Saphozkhov ’17, and Dmitry Semenov ’17 are all expected to be strong frontcourt players. Hoyin Tsoi ’19, Jonas Gerken ’17, and Mark Lehmann ’17 should also see considerable playing time. Webb will be without two key players for part of the season, Bill King ’19 and Dan Kumok ’18.

Because of the team’s small size, Kalter says they will be challenged “to stay in it mentally every game.” Saddleback Valley Christian looks to be the class of the San Joaquin League after going 38-3 in 2016. The Warriors lost five seniors to graduation following last year’s CIF SoCal Regional Division III Championship.

Webb begins its season at the Crean Lutheran Tournament in Irvine on March 4th.
