BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The Ridge boys volleyball team will be looking to repeat as Section 2 champion when the Red Devils visit top-seeded Bayonne on Friday.

Ridge (15-9), battle tested by its rigorous Skyland Conference schedule, rallied from behind to beat Harrison in the semifinals, 20-25, 25-17, 25-19, after outlasting Livingston in a thrilling quarterfinal showdown.

With just two seniors on the roster, Ridge could be poised for a three-peat by the end of 2019 if the Red Devils beat Bayonne. Simon Moeller leads Ridge in assists, Chris Lee has the most digs, Shane Holcomb paces the Red Devils in blocks, and Austin Zhao leads in both aces and kills.

Lee and Jason Clingensmith are the only seniors on the Ridge roster. The boys volleyball team is the "last team standing" among all Ridge High School spring sports teams.
