Boys Volleyball: Livingston Falls to Bloomfield in County Final Rematch


LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Livingston High School boys volleyball team took on the Bloomfield Bengals in a volleyball county finals rematch on Wednesday. The Lancers, ranked No. 17 in the state, put up a good fight against the No. 9 team, but fell short with a final score of 26-24. 

In the first match, Jacob Siwek spiked the ball, earning the Lancers their first point. Shortly after, Richard Kim assisted Ben Litvin, who spiked the ball for the second point.

Being down by nine (with a score of 12-3 Bloomfield) did not stop the Lancers’ momentum. Siwek boosted the team’s score with the help of an assist from Kim, and later a spike. At the end of the match, Adam Vaynerman blocked Bloomfield’s attempt to score, earning the Lancers their final point. The first match resulted in a loss for the Lancers, 25-12.
