Dawgs defeat Pythons in exciting girls A final

The Notre Dame Dawgs (1) and the Parkside Pythons (3) squared off in the championship final for girls A volleyball supremacy. It was a great match with Notre Dame taking it 2-1 (25-22; 21-25; 15-11). The supporters on both sides were loud and contributed to a great atmosphere on the west court at St. Mary’s School.

Parkside got to the final with a 2-1 (25-21; 22-25; 15-11) semi-final win over the Irvine Tigers (2) and a quarter-final win 2-0 (25-14; 25-23) over the Alexandra Jayhawks.

Notre Dame had to defeat a stubborn and tenacious St. Mary’s (4) team 2-0 (25-22; 26-24). The Colts held sizable leads in both sets but couldn’t shut down a positionally sound Dawgs defense. The Dawgs also had to defeat their sister team, Notre Dame (grade 8) team 2-0 (25-10; 25-8) in quarter-final play.

The bronze medal game was equally as exciting. The Tigers looked to be no match for a deflated Colts team winning their first set easily 25-16. The trend continued in the second set until the Colts seemed to come alive. They went on the win the second set 25-21. The third set was the best of the three. Irvine had match point 5 times before the Colts finally went ahead to stay to win 18-16 and take the bronze medal.
