The Guam High Panthers beat the odds of making it to this year's Girls High School Volleyball Championships after defeating the St. John's Knights in 3 sets. The Panthers took the early charge, off several kill and errors by the Knight defense, giving them a 10-point lead. 

Morgan Crisostomo tried boosting her team back into the game, but a relentless Panthers offense kept them at bay, as they eventually conceded in the 1st set 25-10.  In the 2nd set, both teams fought hard for every point, minimizing the errors and capitalizing on the given opportunities, the Knights however would wind up taking the driver seat as they rallied back in the 2nd set taking the 25-17 win.

In the 3rd and final set, the Panthers never let up as they managed to comeback from behind after trailing the Knights early on.  They capitalized on their offensive and defensive game as they eventually went on to take the 3rd set 25-18.

The win puts the Panthers in the Championship game, making it their 1st in their School's history.
