WAPATO - The Grandview High School girls volleyball team quickly dispatched host Wapato last night, Thursday, in a 25-3, 25-9, 25-8 sweep.
The contest was the CWAC South opener for the Lady Greyhounds, who appeared to be in mid-season form in the rout over Wapato.
"We had pretty dominant serving and they had trouble with it," observed Grandview Coach John LaFever.
Game one set the tone for the rest of the match, as Grandview's Jessica Gonzalez served for 10 consecutive points. She was followed by teammate Sydney Mottice's run of 13 straight service points.
The Lady Greyhounds (1-0, 1-0) cruised from there, led by Raissa Licano's nine kills. Kinzi Poteet and Kealey Johnston followed with eight and six kills, respectively, for Grandview.
Mottice and Gonzalez had seven and six kills, respectively, for Grandview. Vanessa Medina kept the Greyhound machine rolling with 25 assists.
Despite the lopsided win, LaFever still sees room for improvement heading into next Tuesday's home opener against CWAC rival Prosser.
"We're still working on fine tuning what we do," he said. "We're working on our center and hitter (positions). There are a few people we'd like to pass a little better."
