Gabrielino beats Arroyo 25-23, 13-25, 25-22, 25-16: The Gabrielino High School volleyball team may lack the firepower of years past, but the Eagles certainly can play a mean defense and display a lot of heart. “We work on a lot of control,” first-year coach Silvia Apodaca said. “We like to control the ball. We teach them to look at the other side of the court.”
