GRANDVIEW – The 2A Grandview Lady Greyhound volleyball team earned its most decisive victory so far this young season with a 3-0 spanking of visiting 4A Davis last night.
“Our defense worked really hard tonight,” Grandview Coach Becky Ramirez said shortly after Thursday’s non-league win.
Grandview prevailed by scores of 25-13, 25-14, 25-21 over the Pirates.
Hannah Pond hustled for a team-high 14 digs for the Lady Greyhounds. “Hannah did a great job of reading Davis’ offense, anticipating the ball and reacting,” said Ramirez.
On offense, Grandview was paced by Taylor Hall and Samantha Grove with 17 and 13 kills, respectively. Ramirez said the duo “…took charge and led our offense through a pretty consistent night.”
Grandview’s attack received a big boost from Evan Swearingen, who dished out 31 assists.
“We played together pretty well last night,” Ramirez said. “We played better as a team and had some really good passing.”
Grandview pushed its record to above .500 with last night’s win, improving to 3-2 on the season.
The Lady Greyhounds return to action next Tuesday at Wapato to begin CWAC league play.
