We lost a very close match in the CIF semi-finals last season and are very hungry to push beyond and not only get to the finals but pursue that CIF championship,” said Debbie Lewis, DHS girls varsity volleyball coach. “Desert is returning seven seniors, three juniors and one sophomore.”
Additionally, Lewis mentioned that two of the senior standouts will be signing their Letters of Intent Nov. 13 at 2:30 p.m. in the DHS gym with the University of Arizona, a PAC-12 school, Division I.
“Both have earned full ride volleyball scholarships for the next five years so all are welcome to attend the signing assembly,” added Lewis.
