Hart's Corrine Holloway hits the ball past Canyon's Kelli Schmidt at Canyon High on Thursday.

All Foothill League girls volleyball teams are now halfway through the league season.

The Hart Indians finished their first half with an easy 3-0 sweep of the Canyon Cowboys with the game scores 25-12, 25-9 and 25-11 on Thursday at Hart High.

That puts Hart (12-9 overall, 3-2 Foothill) at third place in league behind Valencia and West Ranch. Those two teams faced off on Wednesday.

On the first try, Hart narrowly lost to first-place Valencia 3-2 and dropped another close match 3-1 against Hart.

Indians head coach Mary Keen feels like her team could have won both of those matches.

“If we just continue to stay as competitive, but pick it up just a little bit, just enough, that can be something that can help us win the next round,” Keen said.

In Thursday’s match, Corrine Holloway led Hart with seven kills and three aces while Ashley Aponik and Claire Cansler each tacked on six kills. Setter Erin Indermill tallied 16 assists.

The Indians took advantage of Cowboy errors in the match and were able to play substitutes for a good portion of the day.

For Canyon (2-16, 1-4), Sayo Akao landed eight kills and Sara Greenland had six kills and nine digs.

Saugus 3, Golden Valley 0

After starting the league season with three consecutive losses, the Saugus Centurions picked up a second straight win against a Foothill opponent on Thursday at Saugus High.

Saugus beat Golden Valley by scores of 25-9, 25-7 and 25-13.

The win keeps the Centurions in fourth place in the Foothill at 13-12 overall, 2-3 in league.

Jessica Jimenez led Saugus with 11 kills, and her teammate Julianna Dole had 13 digs. Centurions setter Robyn Underwood served nine aces and also added 22 assists.

Golden Valley (1-9, 0-5) remains winless in league play.
