BURBANK — After winning the Liberty League championship last season, the Providence High boys' volleyball team looked to have a good chance at repeating this season, despite losing some key players.
The Pioneers clinched at least a share of the league title with a 25-27, 25-13, 25-16, 25-22 home victory over Oakwood on Tuesday.
The Pioneers, who are undefeated in league play this season, can claim the title outright with a win over Pacifica Christian on Thursday on the road.
"We're happy with where we are, but our coach always tells us that we haven't accomplished anything yet," said Providence's junior captain Taylor Saldana, who led the team in the kills Tuesday with 15. "We're going to come out [on Thursday] and work hard."
The win gives Providence its second consecutive league championship after going 9-1 last season en route to reigning supreme in the Liberty League for the first time in 13 years, and going on to prevail in its CIF Southern Section Division V first-round match.
