WATSONVILLE, CA —Mount Madonna School’s varsity girl’s volleyball team bagged its second state championship win last month. The Hawks beat University High School Charter of Los Angeles in the California Interscholastic Federation D-V state volleyball championship match at Santiago Canyon College in the City of Orange.

The Nov. 22 match kicked off with some nerves on both sides, according to a Mount Madonna School press release. Members of the Mount Madonna community showed up to cheer for their team and University showed up with a cheering squad, drumbeat core and pep squad.

The Hawks ultimately won 25-15, 20-25, 25-22 and 25-8, according to the press release. After a strong first set, the team started down in the second set and never caught up. They gained momentum in the third and fourth sets, the press release said.
