LOS ANGELES — The whistle blew, the match was over, but the celebration was like none other.
The Granada Hills girls volleyball team turned in unison and ran to the first row of the bleachers at Roybal Learning Center to celebrate its emotional victory with teammate Lily Eaves, who watched the entire match with her left leg wrapped in a cast and crutches in hand.
“I didn’t think I could even be here tonight, but thankfully I was able to come,” Eaves said. “I wanted to offer any support I could, even if it meant I couldn’t play.”
What. A. Finish.
Granada Hills wins the LA City Section Open Division title in five sets 25-19, 7-25, 25-22, 16-25, 15-13 over Palisades.
