In 2018, the boys varsity volleyball team came within inches of winning CCS and the NorCal championship, but ended up with second place finishes in both matches. The 2019 team returned its core players, and added some talented newcomers, which resulted in one of the best seasons of any team in Harker’s athletic history. The Eagles brought home the first team CCS championship in school history, played in the program’s second consecutive NorCal championship and finished the season as the No. 4 ranked team in the nation. Through the many highs and the seasonending low (a five-set loss to Monta Vista in the NorCal Division 1 finals), the 2019 boys varsity volleyball team proved it was a team for the ages.
