Sonora upped its Valley Oak League record to 2-0 with a 3-0 home volleyball victory over Kimball on Tuesday night, 25-13, 25-13, 25-18.

"Overall our girls played a pretty solid match," said Sonora head coach

Kim Evans. "There were times where we lost a little of our focus and

could have done some things differently. We are obviously very happy

being 2-0 in the VOL and we have learned a lot being 14-6 overall at

this point in the season by learning from our tough losses.

"I think if we can stay focused and always be ready for every match

that we can have a very successful season. I'm proud of how hard these

girls have worked up to this point, and I look forward to their

continued determination day in and day out to continue our winning

tradition."
