GVB: Cate gets plenty of court time in tourney

Cate won three straight matches Saturday to reach the finals of the Firebird Classic girls volleyball tournament in San Diego.

Unfortunately for the Rams, they lost in the winner’s bracket final and fell in the loser’s final in the double elimination event. The team went 2-2 on Friday.

Coach Greg Novak said the tournament was beneficial because his team got in a lot of matches. “This helped us to get caught up on court time for the season because we’ve had only three full team practices. We learned a lot about the team and the team got to feel the pressure of some big opponents and swings.”

Cate (5-4) returns to Frontier League play on Tuesday at Santa Clara.
