Ivers and Her Squad Make a Run For Another State Title

With a stellar cast of women on this squad, it’s almost a guarantee for another Pacific Coast Championship.

Coach Jamie Ivers is back again, but this time with her beach volleyball team. If anyone knows Ivers’ reputation, then they know this team is not to be trifled with. Ivers and her squad are not your average team, and Grossmont has a reputation for volleyball across the board. The Griffins enter every season with a championship mindset.

Ivers almost scored another title before losing the Quarterfinals in December with her indoor team, so it’s no question the coach is poised for another title run. Due to COVID-19, beach volleyball was canceled in 2020 and 2021.

The last time Grossmont saw the playing field was back in 2019, when Ivers took the 2019 Pacific Coast Athletic Conference Beach Volleyball Coach of the Year. Grossmont’s beach volleyball team is the first program in CCCAA Beach Volleyball history to win the Team State Championship and Pairs State Championships in the same season.

Conference play will begin on March 18 against San Diego Mesa College. While it may be a bit premature, this squad, with the direction and leadership of Ivers, should have no issue sweeping the conference.

With spectators once again attending games, the Griffins could use our support. Even if you are unable to make your way out to a match, you can find any update on the squad through their Instagram page, @ghousevolleyball. They occasionally live-stream the games for those who cannot get enough of these athletes dominating their opponents.
