TOPPENISH - Getting one step closer to clinching the CWAC South, the Grandview High School girls volleyball team rolled to a convincing 25-15, 25-10, 25-4 win against the Toppenish Wildcats last night.
Grandview Coach John LaFever said the teams in the lower part of the CWAC South are pretty even and they've beat up on each other this season. Still, the Wildcats came to play.
"Toppenish played pretty well in the first game," LaFever said. "We just played a little better."
The Greyhounds were able to establish their game a little better in the second contest of the match and then just plain rolled through the Wildcats in the third game.
"We were spiking pretty good and had a balanced attack, something we've been working on," LaFever added. "Usually we start off real fast, then relax. This time, we got better as we went along. The defense got better and everything else followed."
Kinzi Poteet led the Greyhounds with 10 kills and six blocks. Teammates Sydney Mottice, Haley Smasne and Meghan Smasne each had seven kills for Grandview. Mottice added three blocks, 19 service points and five aces, as well.
Gabby Sauve had 20 service points, one ace and 11 digs for Grandview. The Greyhounds setter, Vanessa Medina, added two kills, 12 digs and 30 assists. Kaitee Eucker had two kills, three aces, four digs, four assists and two blocks for Grandview.
"We had a balanced attack," LaFever said. "They all did a good job."
Grandview (9-1, 9-2) will play Prosser Thursday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. in Prosser. If Grandview can win this match it will clinch the CWAC South.
