XCP volleyball triumphs again

Xavier Prep’s volleyball team made it two victories in as many tries to start the season, defeating host Goodyear Millennium 3-1 on Thursday night (Aug. 31).

The Gators were challenged from the opening serve, dropping a 25-24 decision in the first game. They found their groove to win three in a row, 25-23, 25-14, 25-23.

Senior outside hitter Lanie Wagner finished with eight kills. Senior libero Alyna Draper had 16 digs and junior setter Shannon Shields had 21 assists.

Xavier returns to action on Tuesday (Sept. 5) with a home match against Gilbert High.
