Exeter Eagles setter Jack Forry

Wilson beat Exeter 3-1 in the BCIAA boys volleyball semifinals last year.  That loss provided plenty of motivation for the Eagles heading into Saturday's semifinal rematch against the Bulldogs.  "Our coaches were talking about it all week. How we let them into our house, we let them beat us, but it will never happen again," said Jack Forry.  The junior setter had 18 assists, five digs, and four aces as Exeter swept Wilson in Reiffton.  "This is probably the best volleyball we played all year," Forry told Paul Roberts of SV Sports.  The undefeated Eagles took the first set 25-13.  The Bulldogs led the second set 8-5 before Exeter seized control.  The Eagles won 25-14 and then soared to a 25-10 victory in the final set.  Penn State commit Gaige Gabriel finished with a team-high 12 kills.  The 6'8 junior added three digs and two aces.  "He opens up the offense for everyone because the defense sits on him," noted Forry.  Gabriel is a member of the U19 national team.  Chase Nugent's serves gave Wilson a lot of trouble.  The junior outside hitter racked up eight aces to go along with seven kills and six digs.  Exeter improved to (17-0).  The Eagles will host Gov. Mifflin in the Berks County championship on Tuesday night.  Exeter won both regular season meetings with the Mustangs.  Gov. Mifflin fell 3-0 in early April and 3-1 in their second match in Shillington on April 20th.  "I'm excited because they've been our toughest competition all year," replied Forry.  The Mustangs are the defending county champs.  They're an experienced squad with seven seniors on their roster.  Forry also took some time to talk about his favorite teachers at Exeter.
