Boys’ volleyball: Veteran Chargers sweep Bulldogs


WOOD RIVER JCT. — A veteran Chariho High boys’ volleyball team started off the season with a 3-0 win over Westerly in a nonleague Injury Fund match Friday.

The Chargers, who boast a lineup made entirely of seniors, won by set scores of 25-10, 25-22 and 25-20.

Chariho coach Doug Bliven used the nonleague affair to tinker with some different lineups. The Chargers open their Division I schedule on Tuesday at home against North Kingstown.

“We played very well. There was a lot of hype going into this match. We wanted to see what our whole team looks like and we played around with the lineup from set one to set two. It was good to get everyone in and show what they can do,” Bliven said.

Senior Zach Wilcox led Chariho with 10 kills and seven digs. Alec Fowler added six kills, eight digs and ace and a block in the win.

Both Robbie Toth and John Gersbeck finished the match with two aces and Chariho had nine aces on the night.

Bliven said the Chargers served best in the first game, which was a big reason for the most lopsided set score of the evening.

Toth contributed six kills and six digs. Gersbeck had a pair of kills and four digs.

Brandon Eaton posted a team-high three blocks for the Chargers. Senior setter Stephen Philipp finished the night with 30 assists.

Chariho is coming off a 7-12 season in 2013.

Kenny Xie led the Bulldogs with nine assists and six blocks.

Roberto Alessio chipped in with five kills, seven digs and a couple of blocks. Kevin Paige had a team-high nine digs for Westerly.

Westerly (0-1) opens its Division II slate with a home match against East Greenwich on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The Bulldogs went 7-13 in Division II a year ago.
