The Piedra Vista volleyball team won the Piedra Vista Classic for the first time with a 3-0 victory over Monument Valley in the finals.
"It's a big win," said PV head coach Ron Becker. "We've been in the finals about 10 times and always ended up in second place. They were pretty dominant against some really good competition."

After the Lady Panthers pulled out two close sets, 25-21 and 25-23, the team won going away in the third 25-12.

Becker credited his teams ability to fix it's mistakes and said that was the reason they pulled away in the final set.

"We missed a lot of serves in that second game, but they adjusted in the third," he said of his team. "They were on fire in the third. It was the best I've seen them play."

The PV team is coming together as a unit and Becker said that was key to the tournament victory.

"The biggest thing is our team continuity," he said. "Everyone is doing their jobs. You can have a Katie Hegarty, but it doesn't matter if you don't have the continuity around her. Katie and Sam Sofka were pretty solid. The kills were equally distributed. But I've said before we're only going to be as good as our setter, and Vanessa Harris did a fantastic job."

The Lady Panthers defeated Los Alamos in the semifinals 3-1.

After winning the first set 25-16, PV lost the second set 21-25. It was the only set they lost all tournament. The Lady Panthers followed up with 25-19 and 25-20 wins to close out the match.
