 Quartz Hill High School Quartz Hill High School is a public, co-educational high school located in Lancaster, California. Founded in 1964, it is the third oldest comprehensive high school in the Antelope Valley High School District (AVHSD).  boys' volleyball volleyball, outdoor or indoor ball and net game played on a level court.

Highland is back in familiar territory: a 5-1 record, including 2-0 in league. It has won its last 42 league matches.

Quartz quartz, one of the commonest of all rock-forming minerals and one of the most important constituents of the earth's crust. Chemically, it is silicon dioxide, SiO2.  Hill, meanwhile, is charting new ground. The Rebels (5-1, 2-0) host the Bulldogs tonight at 5 p.m. in what many close to the team are saying is the most important match in school history.

Quartz Hill is ranked seventh in the Daily News poll and 10th in the Southern Section Division I poll. Ending Highland's league win streak would be the breakthrough victory towards which it has been working.

 Mario Grimm said. ``We have the talent to do so.''

On the surface, this match might appear as Quartz Hill's outside hitting duo of 6-foot-2 Darren Haub and 6-2 Eric Stott against Highland's formidable middle led by 6-5 Tom Haight and his .600 hitting percentage.

Yet the key to the victory will be how everyone else fares. Haub and Haight are expected to get their sets and make their kills.

``I think it's everyone stepping up to do their job,'' Highland senior Russ Barthloet said. ``We're not all Toms and we're not all Darrens.''

Similarly, Highland has stayed competitive even when everyone but Haight hits a negative percentage, which happened against Littlerock.

He played at safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the National Football League from 1971 to 1980.  and Karl Buckman have passed and dug well.

Quartz Hill needs its middle blockers like Link to contribute more to the offense, just like Highland needs outside hitters Buckman and Cory Brown to step up.
