In the 3rd set, the Pirates started to put up more of a fight, but the Falcons were undeniable as they won the set at 25-19 and the match at 3-0. The Falcons felt amazing after the win against the Pirates, but the road ahead was still rough. On Thursday of the same week the Falcons traveled down to Roseville to West Park High School to play the Panthers. The 1st set was a back and forth battle as the set went into overtime, but due to many serving errors, the Falcons couldn't come out with the set as the Panthers won 32-34. The 2nd set was the same back and forth battle, but the Falcons were outplayed and lost 26-28. With their backs against the wall, the Falcons fought for the 3rd set and won 25-23 coming back from a bad start. In the 4th set the Falcons started off slow and couldn't come back from their early deficit and lost the set 18-25 and the match 3-1. The Falcons played their best in the most intense game of the season, but couldn't come out with the win, ending their 2023 season with an even record of 14-14. To fully round off the season, the team had their banquet on Saturday where they had fun as a team one last time. The team awards were MVP which was given to the sophomore setter Nolan Nguyen 25', the Most Improved Player award which was given to the outside hitter Hunter Marcantonio-Olivia 24', and the Falcon awards which were given to the senior captains Jonas Nguyen 23' and Dustin Regino 23'. Out of the 15 players on the team this year, the Falcons are losing 11 senior players, but the future is still bright for the team as they return and try to improve next season.
