IMPERIAL — Coming off a three-set victory Tuesday, the Imperial High School volleyball team continued its good start by sweeping Calipatria High 3-0 here Wednesday.
Imperial had little trouble with Calipatria, winning 15-0, 15-3 and 15-3.
"We came out here after a tough-fought match in Coachella and I was a little concerned with how we'd start because it was our first home match and our girls were playing in front of their family and friends," said Tiger coach Rich Ponchione. "But we jumped out to a great start and played a good all-around match. We made very few hitting mistakes and we were just able to execute."
Leading the Tigers' execution were Lindsay Lugo with a game-high 14 points, Melissa Keaton with seven points and Andrea Aguirre with four kills. Jenny Bowlan led Imperial defensively with three blocks.
"I really didn't know what to expect out of our girls, but they played well and just did the little things," said Ponchione. "They're playing really well right now and I just hope we can keep it rolling."
