Girls volleyball started early this season, as the Huskies played their first league game Sept. 17 away at Newark Memorial High. The Huskies started out strong in the first game, winning a close match 25-21, but started losing focus soon afterwards. Losing the next two games to the Courgars 20-25, 17-25, the Huskies were not playing their best game. However, the girls rallied back the next game winning 25-20, and pushed through the tie breaker 15-6, to a final victory. Junior Konami Yokoyama had 8 kills, 3 blocks and 5 digs.

“It was pretty evenly matched between the two teams,  going all the way to game five,” sophomore Chessie Santeramo said.

The next game is against last years league champions, Mission San Jose, Sept. 22.
