This program continues in a strong direction.
That was the expectation for 2023 Cathedral High School boys volleyball – and Tyler McClure said that happened during an outstanding season that featured balance, talent and success.
“It was definitely our expectation to be one of the top teams,” said McClure, who finished his third season as the Irish’s boys volleyball coach in ’23. “We came in with expectations of improvement, expecting to contend, and we definitely held on to that throughout the year.”

As Rhonda Low saw it, the time was right.
Cathedral High School’s boys volleyball team is in good hands, Low said – with the right person ready to be the head coach and move the program forward.
Partly because of that, Low – who for more than two-and-a-half decades shaped Irish boys volleyball and Indiana boys high school volleyball in general – decided to retire as the program’s coach. She leaves a legacy that goes far beyond Cathedral.
“The program’s in a very good place,” Low said. “We&rsq...
Hopes were high, and confidence abounded.
Although the 2020 Cathedral High School boys volleyball season didn’t happen, Irish boys volleyball coach Rhonda Low said she’ll remember the team – and its players – fondly.
This was a group with strong leadership and team-oriented players, a team capable of big things.
Low said she’ll remember that much about the group – and more.
“We weren’t individually the best team in the state, but we had a chance to be the best team in the state,” Low said....

The 2019 Cathedral High School boys volleyball season wasn’t easy.
The Irish were young and inexperienced, and it took the leadership of a few key upperclassmen to provide the foundation for a successful season.
With former role players assuming key positions, the Irish – long one of the top high school boys volleyball programs in Indiana – again spent the season as one of the state’s top-ranked teams. They also again won the regional tournament and advanced to the Indiana Boys Volleyball Coaches Ass...
