SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — There's a checklist of accomplishments being closely monitored by the members of the Holy Family volleyball team.
That's led to the bar being raised even higher for the Gaels, who are looking at winning an Horizon League championship and a return appearance to the CIF playoffs in November.
"We have the talent and there might be an opportunity to win league this year," Holy Family Coach Robert Bringas said after the Gaels cruised to a 25-16, 25-13, 25-18 league victory against L.A. Sacred Heart of Jesus on Tuesday afternoon at the Pacific Park Community Center. "We still have to stay disciplined and always keep our heads in the game.
"The expectations are very high and we will play in some tournaments which will also help us improve more."
Alverno won the league crown last season, but Holy Family (6-4 and 2-0 in league) tamed the Jaguars on Thursday with a 25-19, 25-23, 25-20 road win.
