Christopher High faces a Palma team that has given up 66 points through four games. Gilroy High hosts Monterey, a team that scored more than 40 points in each of its first three games this season. And so begins Week 2 of the vaunted Monterey Bay League Gabilan Division.
GILROY—The Christopher volleyball team made the move to the Monterey Bay League’s tough Gabilan Division last season, joining powerhouse teams such as Salinas, San Benito and Notre Dame. The perennial favorites took the top three spots, but the Cougars proved they deserved to be there, too and finished fourth in the division with a 14-18 overall record. Now that it has a year of experience under its belt, Christopher is looking to infiltrate the top three.
