The Sierra High volleyball team (22-1, 4-1 North Sequoia League) beat Yosemite (24-9, 4-1 NSL) Oct. 20, forcing a three-way tie in the league between the two Mountain Area schools and Liberty-Madera Ranchos half-way through league play.
Playing before a crowd of more than 400, the Chieftains looked unstoppable in the first set, overpowering the Badgers 25-15, but Yosemite re-grouped and won the second set 25-23.
Sierra won the third and fourth sets (25-20, 25-18) to close out the match.
Sierra’s only loss on the season was to Liberty.
Yosemite will travel to Sierra on Nov. 5 for both teams last league match of the season - a match that could decide who takes the league title.
