The Crossroads girls’ volleyball is doing extremely well this

year. The Roadrunners are making a lot of noise this season as one of the top

teams in their division in the CIF Southern Section.   

Crossroads is undefeated throughout all of its league matches to

date. With two games remaining on their schedule before the postseason

kicks in, the Roadrunners are on pace to win the Delphic League title. 

Crossroads

have a team of seasoned veterans and freshmen that have made a huge impact on

the varsity team. 

This week, Crossroads took on Paraclete and won decisively with

a score of 25-15, 25-18, 25-18, winning in three sets. The game

against Paraclete brought out a characteristic of the varsity team that the

coaches have been working towards the entire season. 

The girls played as a

collective unit. Every member of the team had a hand in the win and contributed

to the match by staying focused and executing the game plan within a

competitive environment.

Huge serving efforts as well as great offensive and defensive

efforts throughout the match from seniors Olivia Leventhal and Zoe

Arrastia-Prince helped bring about the win. Freshmen Harper Graves and Olympia

Nagel-Caland played really well throughout.

Senior Mara Greenwald played strong defense and came up with a

clutch block in the third game. Freshman Grace Rose had her best match of the

season playing effective defense as well as setting and serving like a seasoned

veteran.
