The Aztecs are a legitimate CIF-SS championship contender. Their head coach Becca Brown says this is the best team she's ever had and arguably the best team the valley has ever seen.
Palm Desert was dominant in DEL this year they dropped just one set. They finished the league season with 9 sweeps (3-0). Their lone dropped set came against rival Xavier Prep in which PD still won the match 3-1.
