Dos Pueblos Stays Hot, Beats Buena in Four Sets

Middles Ally Mintzer and Danielle La Grange combined for 34 kills and 15 blocks to power Dos Pueblos to a 25-23, 25-20, 23-25, 25-22 Channel League girls volleyball win over Buena at Sovine Gym on Thursday night.

It was the second straight win for the Chargers (14-12, 2-3 in league), who knocked off Santa Barbara High in five sets on Tuesday.

"This was a big week for us," DP coach Megan O'Carroll said. "We closed out the first half of Channel League with our first league win over Santa Barbara, and started the second half with a solid performance against a good, hard-hitting Buena team."

La Grange led the attack with 18 kills and Mintzer had 16 kills. 

From the outside, Becky McKinny hit 10 kills and Katelyn Mires added five to go with six blocks.

Mintzer was DP's blocking leader with eight and La Grange had seven.

Libero Alison Minnich played another strong match with 29 digs. Setter Grace Crozier dished out 40 assists, served three aces, had two blocks and seven digs. Oliveya Leon contributed 10 digs. 

"We've had our share of challenges and crucial conversations over the past couple weeks, and I couldn't be more proud of this team's response," O'Carroll said. "We're still a good distance away from how I know this team can play, but we're getting there through effort, attitude, and the will to get better each day."

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!
