TOPPENISH - The Grandview Lady Greyhound volleyball team made quick work of host Toppenish last night, Thursday, in a 25-16, 25-13, 25-17 victory.
"They were a real scrappy team," Grandview Coach John LaFever said of the Wildcats. "But we had more offense."
That evenly-distributed offense was sparked by the trio of Payton Parrish, Taylor Hall and Samantha Grove, who combined to pound 46 kills at the net and hustle for 43 digs.
"We got good production from them," LaFever said. "There were a lot of digs and the digs have to come first before we can get the kills."
Grandview libero Suzie Medina recorded a team-high 17 digs in the non-league match.
LaFever singled out Parrish, an all-league setter who this season has been moved up to the net. "We have to rely on Payton to do more hitting. She's our best hitter," he said.
Evann Swearingen now fills the role of setter for Grandview, and came through with flying colors last night as she dished out 23 assists to pace the Lady Greyhound attack.
The Lady Greyhounds are at home next Tuesday to take on Ephrata in a non-league match.
