SACRAMENTO — With transfer students Carolyn and Evelyn Brady finally eligible to join their Davis High girls volleyball teammates in the court Tuesday — and several other Blue Devils getting healthy — the locals showed Grant just how good they can be.
DHS swept Grant in three games, getting the first two by scores of 25-20 and 25-19, then really putting it all together to win the third set 25-12.
“We served pretty tough (Tuesday) .. got on some good runs,” said Devil coach Julie Crawford. “Our serve-receive passing in the backcourt was good and it took us a while to get the connection between our setter and our hitters going, but once we did it was really strong in that third game.”
With the Delta Valley Conference victory, its second in two league matches, Davis improved to 14-8 overall.
Carolyn Brady made the most of her first official outing for the Blue Devils, seeing a lot of time at middle in her solid performance. Crawford also praised the play of sophomore Kendal Paulson, saying that the former JV standout was aggressive at the net.
“My setter Samantha Moore did a good job,” Crawford added. “She really helped the team stay positive out there.”
DHS is on the road at Laguna Creek on Thursday at 6 p.m.
