Damien, University Lab to face off in all-ILH D2 semifinal


For the third straight year, it will be an all-ILH affair in the semifinals of the New City Nissan Division II Girls Volleyball Championships.

The Monarchs and Jr. Bows will square off in the 5 p.m. semifinal at Kalani's gymnasium Thursday night. It will precede the second semifinal between top-seeded Mid-Pacific and Hawaii Baptist.
