Volleyball: Grizzly girls win playoff opener

GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra opened the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V playoffs Tuesday with an easy 25-11, 25-9, 25-4 triumph — it’s play getting better as the match unfolded.

The victory over Foresthill sent the Grizzly girls to Auburn last night for a second-round date with Forest Lake Christian.

“We’ve been working really hard in practice, have everyone back at 100 percent and playing hard regardless of opponent,” Golden Sierra coach Justin Cox said. “We’re focused right now, taking one match at a time and keeping our eye on the bigger prize.”

For the most part, the Grizzlies hit, defended and blocked well Tuesday. The serving, led by Jordyn Condit, Abby Wever and Brittany LaShell kept the Wildfire out of system.

The girls were backed by a raucous, sign-toting crowd in what likely was the team’s final home appearance. Each player participated and Condit’s setting for Wever, Paige Murchison and Tristan Nedeigh set the early tone with Becca Brown’s in-your-face mid-match kill the exclamation point.

Golden Sierra’s main defenders — Kensie Clark, Elise Wilson and LaShell — weren’t severely tested; Brown and Lindsey Natrass sealed off the net; and Jazmin Lutey-Willard, Robin Moore, Autumn Nordby and Lexi Chiaratti all saw court time.
