Volleyball Team Places Second At 4A State Tournament

Congratulations to Head Coach Rob Graham and the Ponderosa Volleyball Team for placing 2nd at the 4A state volleyball tournament! The Mustangs battled #1 ranked Lewis Palmer to four games, before coming up short. Ponderosa was one of very few teams to take a set off LP, who was the defending 4A state champion and ranked #3 nationally.  Great season ladies, Ponderosa is very proud of you!!!
