The Lone Pine Lady Eagles came away from Mammoth Tuesday still undefeated in Desert Mountain League play after a hard-fought three-game sweep.
The winning scores: 25-22, 25-20 and 25-20.
The Lady Eagles are 6-0 in league play – 15-3-2 overall – and are ranked Number 3 in Division 5AA Volleyball.
“This was a huge victory, the match was intense from start to finish, this was a typical Mammoth-Lone Pine battle,” said coach Mel Joseph. “Lone Pine played outstanding defense. We were able to wear them down mentally by getting the best of their hitters in the end.”
According to Joseph, the spectators witnessed some outstanding volleyball: great serving, hard-driven spikes, awesome digging and blocking.
As a team, Lone Pine served 95 percent and had 11 aces. “My hat is off to Mammoth – they played great. The 3-0 win is no indication of how well they really played,” said Jospeh.
The Lady Eagles will participate in Homecoming Festivities this week and will be at home after two weeks on the road hosting the Boron Bobcats Thursday.
