It wasn't David slaying Goliath but the kids from Pusch Ridge Christian Academy probably wouldn't mind themselves being compared in that analogy.

The smaller school Lions swept big school Mountain View 2-0 (25-23, 25-18) on Saturday to sweep thru the Flowing Wells Girls Volleyball Invitational.

Pusch Ridge (9-0) won the title going 5-0 on the tournament and not losing a set.

The Lions beat Douglas, Desert View and Desert Christian in Pool Play and then knocked off Sahuarita in the Gold Bracket Semifinal before dispatching of Mountain View (5-5).

PRCA is led this season by seven seniors Raine Starbuck, Sydney Housman, Caroline Mays, Emma Reilly, Summer McDonough, Sophie Mitchell and Sofia Fetsis.

The Lions finished 25-6 last season and were eliminated in the first round of the Conference 3A state tournament. They look like they are set up for a possible deep run this season.

Mountain View was led by Destiny Pundt who had six kills.
