2017 Boys’ Volleyball Review

The Rebels worked through a season full of obstacles to post a 32-10 record and a trip to the semi-state. The team used 17 different players throughout the season and didn’t have a consistent starting lineup until the state tournament. In the semi-state match, starting setter Sam Eiland went down with an ankle injury in the second set and the Rebels lost in four sets to second-ranked Noblesville. Along the way, the Rebels won their ninth consecutive regional championship and captured the first-ever Circle City Conference championship.

Senior Conor Cunningham was named the team’s MVP, as well as the team’s defensive player of the year. Senior Matthew Woodruff joined Cunningham on the All-Circle City Conference team and was a finalist of the Indy Star’s state player of the year. He also won the team’s mental attitude award. Junior Jacob Luedeman was also an all-conference selection, as was junior Sam Eiland. Eiland earned the team’s offensive player of the year award. The Indiana Boys Volleyball Coaches Association (IBVCA) tabbed Cunningham, Woodruff and Eiland as all-state selections. Senior Billy Wincek was chosen to the all-tournament team by the state’s coaches.

Wincek, Cunningham, Woodruff and juniors Conner Gore, Kyle Carpenter, Michael Frausto, Murphy McManama and Patrick McManama were all named to the IBVCA Academic All-State team. Five players – Cunningham, Luedeman, Carpenter, Frausto and Eiland – were selected to participate in the United States Volleyball Association (USAV) Talent Showcase. Only 50 players were chosen nationally to be involved with the event. Sam Eiland, Michael Frausto, junior Blake Powell, sophomore Zach Straumins and freshman Zach Mayer were picked to train with the USA National team and coaches for a week.

Three players entered the program record book. Connor Cunningham set a new season-record for digs (364). Sam Eiland established a new single-season assist record with 950 and Jacob Luedeman broke the single-season kills record with 250.
