Dos Pueblos Storms Back in 3rd Set, Beats Buena in Four

The Dos Pueblos girls volleyball team pulled out a highly contested win at Buena in a Channel League matchup on Tuesday.

Ally Mintzer, Danielle LaGrange and Danica Minnich each had 13 kills to power the Chargers to the 25-17, 18-25, 30-28, 25-14 victory.

Buena was leading 24-20 lead in the third set when Mintzer made a game-saving block. Autumn Rexford served  three straight points to tie the game at 24.  The score was 28-28 when LaGrange blocked for the go-ahead point  Minnich sealed the comeback with a kill down the line.

"This was a huge reset button for us, not only for this match but for our season going forward," said DP coach Dillan Bennett. "We have the confidence that if we execute our plan, we can comeback from anything. The girls played outstanding tonight."

Danica Minnich added five digs and four aces and her younger sister, Alison, contributed three aces and six digs.

"The on-court leadership of Danica Minnich and Jackie Holmes was excellent tonight. After the loss at Santa Barbara last week, we really challenged them to step it up in that department, and they have done a much better job as of late," said Bennett.

Dos Pueblos completed the first round of league play at 2-2 and improved to 15-11 overall. They start the second round on Thursday at San Marcos.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
