The Hudson boys volleyball team improved to 14-6 after earning a 23-25, 25-22, 25-18, 25-18 victory over host St. Edward Wednesday in Lakewood.

The Explorers were missing their top front-row player, Matt Gentry, who was out with an injury.

"While we were a bit uneven at times, we managed to pull things together and win three in a row after dropping a tight first set," Hudson head coach Larry Meehan said.

Setter/right-side hitter Luke Karnofel led the way with a season-high 13 digs, 12 assists, five kills and three aces.

Middle blocker Jack Torrence finished with 11 kills and nine blocks and outside hitter Norman MacKay contributed five kills, two blocks and two digs.

"Luke was a big part of the action," Meehan said. "Jack set the tone in the front row and Norman stepped in and did some nick work picking up the offensive slack."

Also faring well for the Explorers were libero Aidan L’Hommedieu (17 digs, a 2.7 passer rating in 37 attempts and an ace); middle blocker Shane Chilcott (six kills, four blocks, two aces and two digs); outside hitter Michael Meehan (six kills, five digs, three blocks, two aces and a 2.4 passer rating in 31 attempts); defensive specialist Cameron Coy (17 serves with no errors, a 2.4 passer rating in 27 attempts and seven digs); and setter/right-side hitter Mitch Adkins (18 assists, five digs, four kills and two blocks).
