Senior center Ana Ramirez had seven kills, six aces and four digs. Senior outside hitter Erika Alvarez had two kills, two aces, four digs and one block.
In a meeting of two teams who were undefeated in the Harbor League earlier in the week, New Roads came back from losing the first set to defeat Rolling Hills Prep, 23-25, 25-11, 25-13, 25-17.
