"This was a disappointing loss," Hudson head coach Larry Meehan said. "We did not find our way to turn a few very good individual performances as well as other flashes of excellence into a team victory."

Hudson posted a 25-10, 24-26, 25-15, 25-8 victory over Kent Roosevelt May 2 on the road.

"It was nice to get this win and see the progress the guys have made over the last three weeks," coach Meehan said. "We served very effectively, blocked well and played good defense."

Larry Meehan had five aces, five kills, 15 assists and three digs and Thomas Morgan had 12 digs, two aces, two kills from the back row and a 2.6 passer rating.

Gentry led the offensive attack with 11 kills and Chilcott had a strong all-around match with six kills, four aces and three blocks.

"After we neutralized Kent's hitting in the first set, they made an adjustment to tip over and play off our block. That gave them the advantage in a tight second set.

"We made our own adjustment and the defensive work of libero Thomas Morgan and defensive specialist Kellen McCabe really helped us regain our footing and get back in the attack.

"Thomas was aggressive and effective with his passing all night. It was a strong team win. Hopefully, it's another step in a positive direction for our developing squad."

Hudson was scheduled to host Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph May 4. Hudson also was set to compete at a junior varsity tournament May 6 at VASJ. Results of those matches were not available at press time.

Hudson is scheduled to visit Medina May 9 before returning home to play Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary May 10. Both matches are set to begin at 6 p.m.
