Outstanding 2014 Girls Volleyball Season & Highlight Video

Our Lady Lions had a 2014 volleyball season for the books! Their teamwork and determination landed them a win against Orange Lutheran and a spot in the Round 1 CIF game against Long Beach Poly. The girls went home with their first ever Round 1 CIF win, and the anticipation for Round 2 against Great Oaks was building for the team and fans. Unfortunately, their season ended there, but they made history for our school and JSerra could not be more proud!
