The Santa Clarita Christian girls volleyball team swept Faith Baptist of Canoga Park at home Monday night.
Game scores were 25-22, 27-25 and 25-10.
Coach Darcy Brown said the focus Monday was on teamwork, staying positive and covering the court as a cohesive unit.
“It made a big difference,” Brown said. “We played great defense.”

The Cardinals (6-3 overall, 2-0 in Heritage League) transitioned this year to life without standout Kylie Brown, Darcy’s daughter, who graduated after last season’s CIF-Southern Section Division 5AA runner-up season.
Darcy Brown, though, said the team may have more depth this season.
Monday, Kalona Marr led the way with nine kills and 25 digs, while Megan Dombrowski followed with eight kills and five aces.
Kaleigh Moss had 19 digs and one ace, and Kenzie Kennedy tallied four aces, 13 assists and six digs.
“I feel like we’re a little bit of a younger team,” Brown said, “coming together and working and figuring out everyone’s roles.”
The Cardinals survived a tight second game Monday, and rode the momentum to a decisive win in game three.
