The Grant Union Prospector volleyball team had one more hurdle to overcome in their quest to be league champions.

The Lady Pros showed their strengths with a 3-0 win over the Imbler Panthers Friday night in John Day, taking the sweep with scores of 25-22, 25-16 and 25-12.

Grant Union had a strong start in the first set, then the teams traded points back and forth.

“We were able to pull out a close one there at the end,” said Prospector head coach Shae Speth, adding they were able to focus more in the second and third sets.

“Imbler’s a pretty scrappy team, so we’d make a great play, and a lot of times it would fall, but they were able to dig some balls and just get some plays out of it,” she said. “We had to make sure that we just stayed with it the whole time.”

Grant Union outside hitter Mariah Moulton was pleased with the night’s win.

“It’s one step closer to a league title, and we played as a team,” she said.

Grant Union is on the road tomorrow to face the closely matched Union Bobcats at 12 p.m.

“If we beat Union tomorrow, then we are league champions outright,” Speth said. “If we lose to them, then we would have to have a league playoff game to see who is first, probably on Monday.”

The Wapiti District Tournament will be held Saturday, Oct. 21, at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande.

Grant Union has a record of 21-1 overall and 7-0 in league, and Union is 18-2 overall and 6-1 in league.
