The Latin Academy boys’ volleyball team swept O’Bryant in three sets, 25-23, 25-15, and 25-17, to capture the Boston City League championship at the Reggie Lewis Center on Friday afternoon.
“We just had to play our game,” said first-year Latin Academy coach William Lau. “Just basics . . . One pass, one set and one hit.”
In a matchup featuring stellar underclassmen, the Latin Academy seniors calmly led their squad through numerous O’Bryant runs without dropping a set.
At the center of it all was outside hitter David Ho — named the league’s Most Outstanding Player — who finished with seven kills.
“David Ho has [carried] our team,” said Lau.
“Pretty dependable serving-wise, passing-wise and hitting-wise. He’s the guy to depend on for our team.”
Fellow senior Tyler Polite tallied 11 kills, and classmates Jimmy Joachim and Harvey Li both had big performances for the Dragons (12-6).
“They’re seniors, so they’re supposed to imbue their philosophy on [the younger guys],” said Lau. “A lot of them have learned from the seniors to hustle, come to practice on time and give it 100 percent every single time.”
O’Bryant (8-13) was led by junior Terry Zhen, who notched six kills, increasing his season school-record total to 237. Sophomore Brenden Yong added seven kills.
