GVB: Owls romp in 2nd-round match

Playing on the road didn’t faze the Laguna Blanca girls volleyball team. The Owls jump on host Grace Brethren in the first set and never let up in rolling to a 25-6, 25-16, 25-13 sweep in a CIF Division 4AA second-round match in Simi Valley.

“We had a solid game plan going in and jumped all over them in Game 1, Laguna coach Jason Donnelly said. “As they settled down, we stayed consistent and played at a high level the entire night. It was nice to go on the road and get a win in the playoffs.”

The Owls (20-7) will be home for Saturday’s quarterfinals, taking on Shadow Hills at 6 p.m.

Emily Lafitte played a solid match against Grace Brethren, posting 9 kills, 12 digs and 7 service aces. Caylin Zimmerman and Phoebe Madsen each had 7 kills.

“We continue to practice at a high level and the girls are having fun,” said Donnelly. “.We are looking forward to getting back in the gym to prepare for the quarters.’
