LEGACY WINS

EPIC FIVE-SETTER

An epic comeback from two games down put Legacy High School in control of the District 2-6A volleyball race.

Legacy (26-10 overall) improved to 8-0 in district play and its 27-29, 16-25, 25-21, 25-21, 16-14 victory over Frenship gave the Lady Rebels a two-game lead over Frenship with four games to play. Considering that Legacy has swept Frenship, and Legacy might as well have a three-game lead for all intents and purposes.

The Legacy defense came through with five players recording double-digit digs, including 39 from Sydney Leavitt. Marisa Calzada added 20. Christallynn Tate led Legacy with 10 kills, Loredana Fouonji added nine blocks, and Kendall Harrington and Yani Flores combined for 43 assists.

"This team is relentless," Legacy coach Rachel Anglin said. "They knew what it required to come back from a 2-0 deficit, and they proved that tonight. Each and every person on this team did their part to win this game tonight. I am beyond proud of the grit they showed."

Frenship falls to 20-16 and 6-2.
