After a minor rough patch in the middle of the season, the Cardinal Gibbons girls’ volleyball team found its groove at the right time.

Their latest triumph: A gritty five-set win over host Pine Crest in the District 13-5A semifinals on Tuesday night. Cardinal Gibbons dropped the first two sets 19-25 and 25-27 before rallying to win the final three sets 25-19, 25-20 and 15-11 to clinch the match against a PIne Crest team that reached the state semifinal last season.

Dylan Andrews filled up the stat sheet in the win, recording 17 kills, 5 digs, 1 assist and 10 service points. Jenna Giaquinto (12 kills, 12 digs, 7 service points) and Caitlyn Faber (43 assists, 12 digs, 5 blocks, 2 kills, 8 service points, 2 aces) were also pivotal in the win.

The Chiefs (17-9) have now won six of their last seven matches and are a win away from being district champions.

Their opponent in that district final: Calvary Christian, which defeated Chaminade-Madonna 3-1 (25-16, 25-20, 17-25, 25-18) in the other semifinal match. Senior Maylin Bouffard recorded 16 kills and Kaitlyn Green had eight blocks at the net.

First serve for the district final is set for 6 p.m. Thursday at Pine Crest.
