Antioch’s first BVAL boys volleyball title in 20 years ‘something we’ll remember forever’

For the first time in 20 years, the Antioch boys volleyball team took home the Bay Valley Athletic League championship.

By going 10-0 in league play — like the Panthers of 1996 did en route to the North Coast Section Division 1 title — the team accomplished a goal it set the day after falling in the first round of last year’s NCS playoffs, Antioch coach Dave Driskell said.

“We finished our season off really good last year and we knew were bringing back a good core group of our main contributors this year,” Driskell said.

Antioch’s 13-player roster has 11 seniors, led by Josh Johns, Jake Perkey, Jordan LaBier, Cameron Mucio and Ramon Mayorga.

“Those have been the main guys that are driving us,” Driskell said.
