Marana Mountain View jumped out to big leads in a 3-0 sweep over Canyon del Oro Tuesday night, only to see the Dorados battle back several times, but the final outcome is what matters most. The win pushed the Mountain Lions record to 3-0 on the year while Canyon del Oro is now 5-4.
The Dorados went 4-2 and finished in third place at the TUSD Tournament last weekend, which explains the match disparity, but the Mountain Lions will be headed out to Kellis High School next week to take part in the Cougar Invitational and the program will host the View Invitational at the end of the month.
Queen Creek American Leadership Academy went 7-0 to capture the championship of the TUSD Tournament for the second year in a row. The Patriots have won 14 matches in a row at the tournament after going 0-5 in 2017. Pueblo took second place with a 5-2 record, losing to ALA 25-23, 25-23 in the championship match. Canyon del Oro lost to Pueblo in the semifinal round.
