The Hudson boys volleyball team concluded its regular season with a 25-10, 20-25, 25-22, 25-20 loss to host Walsh Jesuit Wednesday in Cuyahoga Falls.
The Explorers dropped to 10-11 in 2018.
"We played a fairly miserable first set where we could not seem to make a good pass and were seemingly always on our heels," Hudson head coach Larry Meehan said. "After a few lineup adjustments, the team really found a good stride, playing with a great deal of intensity and heart.
"Though it resulted in just one set victory, we probably had the best team performance as any we had all season, everybody contributing and engaged. It was a good way to head into the playoffs, truly competing against a strong opponent."
Matt Gentry led the way with 14 kills, four blocks, a 2.7 passer rating over 28 attempts and two aces.
Aidan L'Hommedieu put up a 2.65 passer rating over 51 attempts, while adding nine digs and two aces. Shane Chilcott tallied six kills and five blocks.
Also faring well for the Explorers were Luke Karnofel (18 assists, eight digs, four kills and two blocks), Michael Meehan (six digs, three aces, two kills and two blocks), Jack Torrence (four blocks), Jacob Gray (two kills and two blocks) and Cameron Coy (two aces and zero errors in 10 serving attempts).
Sixth-seeded Hudson is scheduled to play seventh-seeded Stow-Munroe Falls in the opening round of the North Region Tournament Monday at Walsh. Play is set to begin at 6:30 p.m.
