Heavy Hitters

Girls Volleyball: Campolindo vs. Northgate, Round 1, Tuesday, Oct. 18 at Campolindo.

In this corner we have the Northgate Broncos, who come in with an impressive record of 21-0 and two tournament wins (Wolverine Invitational, Castro Valley Invitational).

In this corner we have the Campolindo Cougars, who come in at 13-3, with all their losses coming at the Durango Tournament in Las Vegas earlier this season where they faced some of the nation’s top volleyball teams. The Cougars also return the exact same team that was four points away from a trip to the Division III state finals.

Are you ready?

The volleyball match many have been waiting for this season is finally here. It’s time to see who’s the best team in the DFAL and maybe even the East Bay.

Both are undefeated in DFAL play this season. Both shared the league title last season. The Broncos, who have won their first 20 matches of 2005, beat the Cougars last season at home, handing Campolindo its first league loss since 1999.

Now, the Cougars start things off on their home floor. Can Carly Lathrop and the Broncos take out Campolindo led by Kristen Kathan? Who do you think is the favorite?
