GVB: DP takes lumps at high-level tourney

Dos Pueblos tested itself against some of the top volleyball teams in the CIF and in the country Saturday at the Dave Mohs Orange County Championships.

The Chargers went 0-4 playing against Corona del Mar, Villa Park and Corona-Centennial in pool play and Murrieta Valley in the bronze division playoffs. Division 1AA Corona del Mar is ranked No. 1 in the nation, according to MaxPreps; Villa Park is ranked third in Division 1A and Centennial is a large school.

“Overall, 0-4 on a weekend usually isn’t a very good result,” DP coach Dillan Bennett said. “But considering all of the factors involved with our personnel, our experience level, and the very high-level of play, I think everyone who saw court time learned a great deal about what it will take for our program to be successful again at DP. We had a few glimmers of shining play, but overall it was a weekend of learning what we must do to be a competitive program.”

The Chargers (0-6) host Rio Mesa on Tuesday night.
