Prep roundup: NU drops league game to Grizzlies, Magnolia girls capture Jr. High title

The Nevada Union girls volleyball team is off to a slow start to its Sierra Foothill League season, dropping a Monday night game to Rocklin and another Wednesday to Granite Bay, 25-21, 25-13, 25-22.

The Lady Miners have been hampered by injuries to some key players, said Marco Salcedo. But, the bench has stepped up and is giving the NU a fighting chance against some of the tougher teams in the SFL.

The Lady Miners are back at it Monday when they host Del Oro.

Giving Del Oro the toughest time was Nu’s No. 2 doubles team of Hayley Barton and Becca Hofheinz, who lost in two sets, 6-4, 6-4.
