Unforced errors stymie State College boys’ volleyball team

Inconsistency slowed State College as the Little Lions fell 3-1 (25-22, 20-25, 25-18, 25-20) to Central Dauphin on Thursday.

“Our serving game wasn’t strong enough,” State College coach Kim-Li Kimel said. “We weren’t getting enough offense.”

Kimel estimated her squad committed 37 unforced errors in the loss. Despite 19 kills by Gabe Avillion and a solid night from Brandon Kuruzovich (16 assists, nine kills and a block), the Little Lions were unable to find their rhythm against the Rams.

Kimel said the team would get back on the court and work on finding the tempo on offense again.

“We’ve got a lot of space to get better,” she said.

Noah Christie finished with 23 digs, while Walker Stone led the team with 23 assists.

State College (2-2) plays in the Koller Classic on Saturday at Central York High School.
