LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — With its starting setter in the heart of New York City and starting outside hitter recovering from a knee injury, the Flintridge Prep boys' volleyball team never looked in sync when it took to the court to meet rival Pasadena Poly on Friday afternoon.
The Rebels were without setter Kieren Mulroy, who was on a college visit to New York University, and outside hitter Kory Hamane, who suffered what might be a season-ending knee injury while recently playing basketball.
Flintridge Prep had a difficult time filling the big voids, as it suffered a 25-23, 25-20, 25-18 Prep League home loss.
It hasn't been a smooth season for the Rebels, who dropped to 6-11, 0-2 in league. Flintridge Prep, ranked No. 6 in the latest CIF Southern Section Division V poll, began its season missing five players who helped the school's boys' basketball team win the program's first CIF championship before competing in the state playoffs.
