Coronado volleyball hosts regionals

       The Coronado High School girls volleyball team won its first district championship in 12 years last weekend.
       The team will now host the Regional Champion-ships this Saturday, Nov. 5, at which Coronado will play three matches.
       The girls will advance to state if they win two of three. If they win all three, they will be regional champions and third overall seed at state, assistant coach Stormie Wells explained.
       “Likely game times are 9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.,” she said. “I hope that Westsiders will come support this wonderful, hard-working group. They are so fun to coach, and they are very entertaining to watch.”
