WVC Boys Volleyball Capsules

Tom Robinson - Times Leader

Coach: Debbie Gavin
2017 WVC Record: 8-4
2017 Postseason: Lost to Berwick 3-1 in D2-2A quarterfinals
2018 Record: 0-1

All-stars returning: Carlos Castillo was a second-team defensive all-star on the coaches’ team
Starters returning: Castillo, Sr. L

Outlook: The Trojans suffered some heavy graduation and transfer losses, so a slip of some type is likely, but the program starts from a strong point with three straight state tournament appearances. Tyler Rushton an Christian Mavus are being depended on to play key roles in the revamped lineup.

Nanticoke Area - Trojan Volleyball Outlook
Citizens Voice

Coach: Debbie Gavin
2017 league record: 8-4

Team Outlook: Looking at the roster, there’s no doubt it may be a rebuilding at Nanticoke Area as the Trojans lost seven seniors — including leading attackers Josh Baranowski, Justin Casey, Zach Cardone and Luke Butczynski. Baranowski, Casey and Alec Divers were all-conference mentions one year ago. Gavin does return senior libero Carlos Castillo, who was second team all-WVC defense in 2017. Also back is junior Christian Mavus and sophomore Tyler Rushton. The Trojans have a tough one right out of the gates, opening up with Holy Redeemer.

Coach’s Outlook: “The guys are working hard, and doing their best each day in practice. Hopefully, we can keep getting better with each day, and we will see what happens.”
