GVB: Chargers grab their first win in home victory over Rio Mesa

The Dos Pueblos girls volleyball team secured its first win of the season against Rio Mesa on Tuesday, and did so in stellar fashion with a 3-0 sweep. The set scores were 25-16, 25-23, 25-15.

Ali Milam led the way with an impressive 19 kills accompanied by two aces which was facilitated by Catherine Hogan who finished with 17 assists. Autumn Rexford provided 5 aces and 7 digs on the day.

“In the second game we came out flat and found ourselves down 18-11,” said coach Dillan Bennett. “I think we got a little bit too excited and began to play poorly but a combination of Rexford’s serving and Milam’s kills got us back in it and we were able to win that one 25-23.”

The Chargers improve to 1-6 with the victory and are set to play Oxnard on the road next Tuesday.
