DAY IN PREPS: Q. HILL CRUSHES LANCASTER REBELS' VOLLEYBALL OVERCOMES OBSTACLE.
Quartz Hill High faced a big test Tuesday when the Rebels, who were coming off a tough loss to Highland last week, hosted a highly regarded Lancaster team in a Golden League girls' volleyball match.
To say the Rebels passed with flying colors would be a dramatic understatement.
Quartz Hill set the tone early, taking an 8-0 lead in the first game and never let up, winning easily 15-2, 15-0, 15-6.
``They came out on fire,'' said Quartz Hill coach Larry Vocke, who noted he wanted to see if his players would be able to put the Highland match behind them when they faced the Eagles on Tuesday.
``They played good defense and blocked well, and to me that meant that they've got that game out of their heads,'' he said.
Quartz Hill middle blocker Kristen DeShane had five kills and three blocks.
``(We wanted) to show everyone that we don't play as bad as we tend to do when we get around Highland,'' she said.
Stephanie Wigfall led the Rebels with 10 kills, and setter Randi Cooper had 26 assists as Quartz Hill improved to 10-3, 4-1.
