The Mira Costa High School girls' volleyball team reestablished a point it made to Newport Harbor last month: The Mustangs are the better team.
Mira Costa swept the Sailors in three games, 15-4, 15-4, 15-10, to win the Division I state title in the Golden West College gym Saturday night before 2,000 spectators.
The Mustangs (24-0) had little trouble in the match, trailing by no more than four points in any game. In the second game, Newport Harbor looked as if it might recover from game one, but Mira Costa scored 15 unanswered points, including the last nine points in succession, off the serves of junior Megan McCallister.
In game one, the Mustangs scored the first eight points before Newport Harbor could break serve. After the Sailors scored twice, Mira Costa upped its lead to 14-2 before going on to win 15-4.
