The Del Oro High volleyball team stumbled in a showdown with rival Rocklin Thursday night in the Sierra Foothill League opener for both teams. The Thunder swept past the Golden Eagles 25-20, 25-22, 25-16 in Loomis. “We played a little tentative, a little tight and made some uncharacteristic errors,” Del Oro coach Stu Kageta said. “They played very aggressively. I thought Rocklin played a great game.” Del Oro senior Belle Obert was a bright spot with nine kills and an excellent night in the serve-receive department. Aly Duffin served for a team-best six points and had four blocks. Morgan Lee was 11-for-11 from the service line with two aces and Bailey Humes dished out 21 assists. The Golden Eagles fell to 20-2 overall. In junior varsity play, Rocklin beat Del Oro 25-21, 25-21. The Rocklin freshmen beat Del Oro 30-28, 27-25.
