Despite playing several players out of position and missing every senior on the roster, the Mission Prep girls volleyball team beat Dunn 25-19, 25-13, 25-18 on Friday.
“All of our seniors were gone on retreat, so we had a lot of players playing new positions,” Royals coach Michelle Lakey said. “It was good to see how versatile our players are. Grace Ready did an especially great job playing middle blocker for the first time.”
Ready had eight kills, five digs and four aces. Kerstin Sanders added seven kills and nine digs, and setter Maggie Boneso had 23 assists and five digs.

“The girls have shown a lot of improvement over the past few matches,” Tigers coach Gary Etheredge said. “I thought they played fantastic today.”

BOYS WATER POLO
Paso Robles 11, Wilcox 4
The Bearcats (8-9) came back from an early 2-0 deficit to get the win against Wilcox at the Aptos Tournament.
“Wilcox started up 2-0, and then we realized that we were playing water polo. Once we were able to tie them, we really took control of the game,” Bearcats coach Duane McRoy said. “Austin McCall had a great game, but it was really our team defense that helped us get open shots leading to easier goals.”
McCall had a team-high six goals. Zane Harvey and Chris Vinson each had two. Tyler Dukes had 13 saves in goal.
