  0 Carly DeMarque | October 05th, 2017 | College - Men's Indoor, MIVA, News

The Lewis men’s volleyball team has announced their 2017-18 schedule, including a month-long home streak featuring 10 matches. In total, the Flyers will have 18 home matches with one being their alumni game.

The Flyers will begin the year with a battle against Humber College followed by a two-match stint in Provo, Utah where they will face UCI and BYU. This now is when the 10 match home streak begins, starting with Long Beach State on January 12 and ending with Quincy on February 10. The team’s first meeting against the two-time defending national champions, Ohio State, will occur on February 22 at home with a follow-up match on March 31 on the road.

The MIVA tournament will start on April 14 and conclude on April 21.

The team is bringing back a number of strong players this season including the team’s setter, Matt Yoshimoto. Yoshimoto dished out 1,155 assists on the year for an average of 9.55 assists per set. Additionally, he led the squad in aces with 39 and picked up 175 digs and 72 blocks. Mitch Perinar also makes a return for the team as the leading scorer from the 2017 season. Perinar slammed down 359 kills for an average of 3.18 kills per set while also adding 115 digs and 82 blocks. Ryan Coenen comes back as the second leading scorer with 342 kills for an average of 3.20 kills per set. Coenen also added 27 aces on the year, 121 digs and 71 blocks.

The team did lose a huge piece of their blocking puzzle in Jacob Schmiegelt who led the Flyers with 124 blocks while also contributing 203 kills and 30 aces on the year.

The Flyers roster for the coming season is young with many sophomores and freshmen while having only one senior in Tom Beckman.
