First up is the HAN Network’s first boys volleyball match of the spring season between the Ridgefield Tigers and the Staples Wreckers. The Tigers, the 3x defending state champions, entered yesterday’s game 5-0 on the season and yet to drop a set. Staples entered 3-1 and their only loss to the defending FCIAC champion Blue Wave. Despite looking out of sync at points during the match the Tigers pulled it together to remain perfect and take down the Wreckers 3-0.
