The Mt. Whitney Pioneers arrived in the El Diamante gym on Tuesday, October 11, in an attempt to redeem their title in girls volleyball. The ladies battled for a lengthy first match, loaded with plenty of rallies.
The tension grew and the scoreboard became very close at the end, leaving El Diamante with the win at 25-23. Makayla Dwelle says it best, “We fought the entire time [and] we kept the intensity up throughout the whole game.”
During the second set, the Pioneers struggled to keep up while the Miners took a strong lead upon their opponent. Mt. Whitney attempted to make a comeback; however, it was too late. The second set ended with a score of 25-18.
The Miners took the lead in the third game with a handful of kills and blocks. The Pioneers creeped up last minute, but the Miners left them in the dust with a score of 25-21.
Jazzy Robles spoke on how when they “all do [their] jobs” and when things “begin to fall into place, it motivates [them] and makes things a lot easier.” The Mt. Whitney Pioneers and the El Diamante Miners are done battling for League of 2016 and the Lady Miners have set the tone.
