The girls’ volleyball team won both their first round and quarterfinals games easily last week.  With a score of 3-0 for both games, the girls managed to dominate every set.

With a breakdown of 25-6 for the first set, 25-12 for the second set, and 15-7 for the third set, the girls beat Banning High on Nov. 10 in a little over an hour.  The quick game showcased the Highlander’s hard work throughout the season and current prediction to be the Division 1 L.A. City Champions.

“It was a good open-round match.  They’re just going to get tougher as we go along, so we just have to try to stay sharp and play good quality volleyball,” said head volleyball Coach Thomas Harp after the game.

The girls went on to defeat Van Nuys High on Nov. 13, with a score of 25-12 for each set, bringing Granada’s overall season record to 20-7.

The girls’ Volleyball team now advances to semifinals on the road to CIF Championships.  Tonight they play the Colts from Carson High in a home game at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $3 for students with an ID.

Looking for a win tonight, the team continues to maintain their focus in order to accomplish their goals.

“Well [the championships] are our goal.  There are some good teams ahead of us, so we just have to play each opponent tough,” said Harp.  “We practice hard, and try to scout the other teams so we know what’s coming.”
