Despite having to play outdoors because of the COVID-19 pandemic the Palisades High boys and girls volleyball squads are off to fast starts this spring.
The boys have won five straight matches after dropping their season opener at Chatsworth in four sets. In addition to sweeping their Western League contests with University, Fairfax and Hamilton, the Dolphins got a four-set win at Taft and swept visiting Verdugo Hills in nonleague play.
Palisades was 9-0 when the season was abruptly canceled last spring, denying the Dolphins a chance to defend their City Open Division title.
Meanwhile, the girls are off to a 6-1 start and had not lost a single set in four league matches heading into today’s meeting with LACES.
The Dolphins’ lone defeat was in five sets at Taft on April 12 but they will have a chance to avenge that loss Monday afternoon when they host a rematch with the Toreadors.
The girls lost to Eagle Rock in the City Open Division finals in 2019.
