Ivanna Eudora Kean High School boys varsity volleyball coach Alrid Lockhart used only one word to describe the Devil Rays' championship win over Charlotte Amalie High on Tuesday: Lovely.

After Kean High took second at last weekend's Educational Complex Tournament, the team came back home and pulled out a 25-17, 25-16, 24-26, 25-22 victory over its rival in the St. Thomas-St. John IAA boys varsity volleyball championship.

Junior left hitter Aseah Thomas tallied 13 kills and five serving aces as the Devil Rays finished the season with an 8-1 record and repeated as district champs.

"Considering all that we have overcome, it was a great way to end the season," Lockhart said. "Taking second in last weekend's tournament made our guys hungry. Going up against our rivals added to it that much more."

The Devil Rays' only loss of the season came against CAHS, which ended the year at 7-2.

Senior Rakeem Malone finished with 12 kills for Kean High, while Leshawn Andrew tallied three aces. Tivir Peters had three digs and Luis Soloman chipped in with two blocks.

"We got contributions from everyone tonight," Lockhart said. "It was a tough battle throughout, but Aseah ended the match with a big point and it felt great to repeat."

Kean High got off to a fast start to the season when it won the preseason Housing, Parks and Recreation Tournament on St. Thomas. The Devil Rays also took third at the Central High Tournament and their host tourney. A runner-up finish last weekend proved the team was on the right track.

"I can't think of a better way to finish off the season," Lockhart said. "I'm very proud of these guys."

Country Day boys take St. Croix title

The fourth set went down to the wire, but Country Day School was able to pull it out and the Tigers' reward was the St. Croix IAA varsity boys volleyball title.

Juniors Jordan Evans and Chandler Blashka were the leading scorers as Country Day walked away with a 25-16, 23-25, 25-19, 28-26 victory over host Central High in the third of the best-of-three St. Croix IAA varsity championship series on Tuesday.

"It was a very exciting finish for us," Tigers coach Andy Dunton said. "In the final set, we were up 20-15, but Central came right back with four straight points. After that, it was point-for-point. We came up with some blocks on their big hitters and that made the difference."

The Tigers repeated as district champions and finished the season with an 8-1 regular season record. The team did fall to the Caribs seven times this season - in tournaments and postseason - so to pull out two wins over Central in the championship was a big achievement for Country Day.

"We have six strong seniors, which is half our team, so they wanted to go out on top," Dunton said. "Next year, we have two juniors coming back who had a big impact this year."

Senior Marcus Moorehead had a solid performance Tuesday in the middle as Evans was praised for his passing. Nayib Gonzalez and Razeem Huggins were the leading scorers for Central
