Easy Reader: Mira Costa girls dominant in beach volleyball action

The article states: While Frohoff, Micheletti and Villapando are enjoying success in youth tournaments, the trio – along with fellow senior Alexia Inman – are leading Mira Costa’s girls beach volleyball team in the Interscholastic Beach Volleyball League (IBVL).
