Senior libero Cynthia Giron of Rancho Cucamonga set a career record for digs with 539. That breaks the old mark of Jordan Ortega who had 491
Giron actually broke the mark in the Cougars first playoff match against West Covina, then added to it with the second round and quarterfinal matches.
“She was a very big part of our success,” Cougars coach Aaron Flores said. “I don’t know where we would have been without her.”
Giron ranks 14th in all the Southern Section, averaging 6.1 digs per set.
Ortega, who graduated in 2010, now plays at nationally ranked Division II Cal State San Bernardino.
