In high school girls volleyball, the Simon Sanchez Lady Sharks cruised to a 2-set win over the Visiting St. John's Knights at their home court in Yigo. The Sharks quickly jumped to a commanding lead off several defensive errors and openings in Knight's territory. St John's did try making a desperate comeback, but fell short of doing so and the Sharks held on strong for the 25-10 1st set win.

In the 2nd set, Sanchez fed off their first set win and built a 13-4 lead behind good team work and setting, forcing St. John's to call a time out to regroup. A couple of defensive errors by the Knights allowed the Sharks to extend their lead to 17-5. After a couple of substitutions by Sanchez, the Knights put up 6 points to find some light in their offense.

Sanchez, however, found their rhythm and went on to take the 25-17 2nd set win.
