Lone Pine Volleyball
Submitted by Coach Mel Joseph
Mojave-The Lone Pine Lady Eagle volleyball team traveled to Mojave on Tuesday for their Desert Mountain League opener and disposed of the Lady Stangs in three straight 25-5, 25-3, 25-5. “Mojave has a very young team and not having a Middle School program or a JV team does not afford their incoming players the experience necessary for HS competition”. “I give them (Mojave players and coaches) credit for being good sports and hosts”. “A lot of times playing an inexperienced opponent, the level of play can drop on both sides of the net, I was pleased with our performance as Lone Pine stayed focused and took care of the ball on their side”. Lone Pine will next host the Desert Christian Knights from Lancaster on Saturday with JV action starting at 1:00PM.
