• Loyola Boys Volleyball sweeps Mira Costa in annual Battle of the Bay

    Much is at stake whenever Loyola and Mira Costa square off, not only because both schools are perennial volleyball powerhouses, but also because several Loyola players traditionally hail from Manhattan Beach and other parts of the South Bay. This results in a showdown featuring young men who are friends and former teammates with many players standing on the other side of the net, and a building filled with fans who can’t wait to see the action unfold.
