Mayfield sweeps Westridge in volleyball


Mayfield Senior School’s path to a potential CIF-Southern Section postseason volleyball tournament berth took a side trip through Arizona.
The Cubs apparently learned they have a chance to make a postseason run while playing at last weekend’s Tournament of Champions in Tempe, Ariz. They did not win the event, but the 3-3 finish apparently changed the direction of the team.
Mayfield showed that new direction in Tuesday evening’s three-game Prep League sweep of visiting Westridge. The Cubs (14-7, 6-2) remained in the hunt for the league title with the 25-18, 25-23, 25-13 victory.

San Gabriel volleyball sweeps Montebello


The San Gabriel High School volleyball team is relentless.

Right when visiting Montebello thought it had the Matadors in a touchy spot, San Gabriel came up with a big defensive stop.

“We’re not as tall as volleyball girls should be,” starter Vicki Wu said. “We just have to work on other things so we can balance everything out.”

The Matadors made two key defensive stops en route to a three-set sweep of the Oilers in a first-round Almont League showdown. San Gabriel (8-2, 4-0) scored a 25-17, 25-11, 25-23 victory.
