The Los Al Boys VB team rallied from a tough loss to Huntington Beach last Friday to come away with two big wins this week.
Last Friday, Los Al took a 2-0 lead but lost three straight to fall to the Oilers. Things didn’t look good on this past Tuesday when they dropped the first two sets to powerful No 3 ranked Newport Harbor, but the No. 11 Griffins rallied to sweep the final three sets to get a big cross-conference win Tuesday evening. Scores were 18-25, 23-25, 26-24, 27-25, 15-10.
The comeback marked Los Al’s 20th win of the season against 8 losses. They continued their good play on Thursday with a 3-2 win over Edison. That improved their Wave league record to 4-0. They’ll finish out their regular season next week against Fountain Valley and Marina.
The Los Al Softball squad continued their hot play, downing the Edison Chargers 10-2 on Tuesday and then defeating Marina 10-2 on Thursday. The Griffins who are now 19-4, get two chances or revenge against Surf League rival Huntington Beach, who handed them their only league loss a few weeks ago. Los Al plays the Oilers on Monday, April 11, then take a 9-day break during the extended spring break (two different weeks off for different districts) before playing the Oilers again on Wednesday, April 20. They’ll complete their regular season on Friday, April 22 against Edison and on Tuesday, April 26 against Marina.
On Wednesday morning, the softball ladies took a break and visited Lee School as part of the “Girls In Sport” program there.
This morning our Griffins gave back to our community at “Girls in Sport” @ Lee Elementary. They spoke about softball and joined them during PE class. It a great day to be a Griffin.
