GVB: DP sweeps Buena for first league victory

A revamped lineup helped the Dos Pueblos volleyball team break into the win column in Channel League on Tuesday night.

Coach Dillan Bennett changed things up after the Chargers’ two previous matches and the result was a 25-19, 25-14, 25-18 sweep at Buena.

Karissa Mertens led a balanced attack with 10 kills, while Rebi Neely and Danica Minnich each had seven kills and two blocks.

“It was a complete team effort,” said Bennett. “We served tough, passed well and our setters distributed the ball very well.”

Audrey Baldwin and Jackie Holmes handled the setting duties for DP (1-2, 3-10 overall). The team served seven aces, “and that’s not counting the serves that put Buena in trouble,” said Bennett.

DP returns home Thursday to play first-place San Marcos.
