Senior captain Mikayla Sanchez-Torrelio led the Lady Royals volleyball team with 11 kills last Monday in a loss to Chaminade-Madonna. Sophomore Cristina Blanco registered 12 digs. The team lost in straight sets to Chaminade.

Senior Madeline Cannata rises up for a spike.

On Tuesday, the Lady Royal Lions welcomed the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart to the Don Bosco Arena. In what was a very competitive match, Lady Royals won the first two sets, 25-22 and 26-24. Unfortunately, Carrollton came back to win the next three sets. 

Junior Adriana Medina excelled against Carrolton, registering 21 assists. Senior Madeline Cannata added 13 kills and five aces.

The Lady Royals finished the week on Thursday by bouncing back from tough losses with a win against Colonial Christian.
