Beaumont volleyball starts quickly
The Beaumont High girls’ volleyball team defeated Redlands 3-1 on Wednesday, Sept. 15.
The victory improved the Cougars to 9-1 overall and 2-0 in the Citrus Belt League. Beaumont also defeated Redlands East Valley 3-0 on Monday, Sept. 13 to open the Citrus Belt League season.
“It was pretty intense,” Beaumont coach Jessica Granados said. “Redlands has some great setters, some big, physical kids and a go-to outside hitter (Julia Tolstova). But we just played Beaumont volleyball – dig to kill. And we served well.”
Vivian Lisboa led Beaumont with 11 kills, Avery McIntyre contributed nine kills, and Madeline Brown had a monster match, collecting 15 digs, 31 assists and four kills. Beaumont also got 16 digs from Destiny Affor.
“Our setter, Madeline Brown, was special,” Granados said. “It’s not just her setting, but her decision-making on defense and on scramble plays, etc.”
This is Beaumont’s first season in the CBL for volleyball. Granados said that after two impressive wins to start league, she hopes more people “will take us seriously.”
