The girls volleyball season got started last week and the Lady Conquerors hit the ground running. Local teams were on the schedule first with Whittier Christian, Northview and crosstown rival Wilson rounding out week one. The Lady Conquerors came out victorious in each match with a 3-1 victory over Whittier Christian and 3 set sweeps of Northview and Wilson.
The team is coming off of its sixth straight league championship and expectations are high once again this season with a well-rounded squad full of returners and talent. Seniors Stephanie Ramos and Jen Martinez provide the leadership on and off the court and freshmen Kathy Porter and Ryann Gunn are productive newcomers. Soledad Sibal will be stepping into the libero position this season, while Jada Smith and Sofia Hess hold down the outside and middle hitter spots.
The girls hit the road this week as they take on St. Lucy’s on Monday and Diamond Bar on Thursday.
