Lady Greyhounds rope Mustangs in sweep

PROSSER - The Grandview Lady Greyhound volleyball team had more than enough firepower to dispatch contender Prosser last night - 25-19, 25-21, 25-16.

Thursday night's CWAC South victory saw Grandview grab an early lead and never look back.

"We had a lead in the first game. They rallied but we held on," said Coach John La Fever.

Game two, he added, was a case of "the right points at the right time." La Fever noted, "It was close and we pulled away at the end."

That set the stage for a decisive game three.

"There were a lot of rallies that had to be won," La Fever said. "They were spiking the ball at us and we were spiking it back. It was a fun match."

Grandview's ability to pound the ball back at the Mustangs received a boost from Lexy Valenzuela and Crystal Navarro, who combined to dig up 44 shots slammed by Prosser.

La Fever said his team had the edge last night because "we were a little more consistent."

Other Grandview highlights included Payton Parrish's 29 assists, four kills and five digs.

Taylor Hall boosted the Lady Greyhound effort with a team-high 23 kills to go with 11 service points and eight digs.

Mikaela Espinoza also found success at the net for Grandview with 12 kills to go with three digs.

Last night's victory helped Grandview (5-1, 9-2) stay tied with East Valley for second place in the league standings.

Grandview's next match is at home next Tuesday against those same Red Devils.

"It will be a tell-tale match," said La Fever.
