CIF-State volleyball pairings

Redlands East Valley, Chino Hills, Upland Christian and Victor Valley Christian’s girls volleyball teams get to continue their seasons for at least another game, as all four teams qualified for the CIF-State playoffs.

The brackets were released Sunday, with the two-time defending Division II Southern California champion Wildcats getting the No. 8 seed in Division I. REV will play at top-seeded Carlsbad La Costa Canyon at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Chino Hills, which lost to St. Lucy’s in the CIF-SS Division 2-AA finals Saturday, got the No. 3 seed in Division II behind No. 1 seeded St. Lucy’s and No. 2 San Diego Scripps Ranch. The Huskies will start on the road though, as they’ll play at Pacific Palisades Charter at 7 p.m.

Upland Christian, the runner-up in D4-A, will play at No. 1-seeded La Jolla Christian Tuesday in the first round of the So Cal Division IV playoffs while Victor Valley Christian will play at No. 2-seeded Lemoore Kings Christian in the Division V playoffs.

Marymount defeats pesky Wildcats

It’s not a four-peat for REV, as Marymount grabbed the fourth game 25-23 to win the CIF-SS Division 1-A championship, but the Wildcats made Marymount work, leading for much of the fourth game.

A service ace by setter Lauren Greskovics-Fuller ended the match, which is ironic considering Marymount’s 21 service errors in the match. Things aren’t done for the Wildcats (29-5) though, as they’ll start play in the Division I state playoffs starting Tuesday.

Final stats will come in a bit.

REV isn’t dead yet

The Wildcats aren’t going to give up the CIF title without a fight, as they defeated Marymount 25-20 in game 3 to continue the match. The Wildcats won the last six points of the game, as Alyssa Mason ended it with two blocks and a kill on game point.

Mason had a good game defensively, compiling six of her seven blocks. Krista Vansant also got going offensively, notching seven of her 14 kills. Peyton Moyles has 17 assists while Cherylain Dizon has five kills and four blocks.

Kathleen Harris leads Marymount with 15 kills while Lauren Greskovics-Fuller has 28 assists.

Marymount up in game 2

A 7-0 run early in the game paved the way for the Sailors to take game 2, as Marymount never looked back from the resulting 11-7 lead in defeating REV 25-17 to come within one game of the CIF-SS Division 1-A championship. Their service game gave REV issues in game two, as Victoria Shepherd had four aces while Atlanta Moye-McLaren and Carly Wagenbach also had aces.

REV got a early lift from Cherylain Dizon, who had two kills and three blocks in the game, but have scuffled otherwise. Krista Vansant has seven kills and two digs while Peyton Moyles has eight assists and two kills.

Marymount takes game 1

Taylor Bantle finished off the game for the Sailors with consecutive kills, giving Marymount a 25-20 win and a 1-0 lead in games. The Sailors have 15 kills to REV’s 7, as the Wildcats have struggled to get their attack going.

Krista Vansant has six kills to lead the Wildcats while Peyton Moyles has five assists. Libero Emily Hargrove has three digs as well.

Marymount up 23-19

The Sailors have been pretty balanced offensively in taking the early lead, as Manon-Greskovics-Fuller has four kills while Kathleen Harris and Atlanta Moye-McLaren have three kills each. Setter Lauren Greskovics-Fuller has nine assists.

Krista Vansant has six of REV’s seven kills. Service errors have plagued both teams, as Marymount has five errors while REV has two.

Live blogging from REV volleyball

In what has become an annual rite of late fall, the Redlands East Valley girls volleyball team is going for its fourth straight CIF championship in about two minutes here, facing Marymount. The Wildcats are actually underdogs, as Marymount is the No. 1 seed to REV’s No. 2. I’ll try to keep you updated, though being situated by the roof here at Cypress College isn’t the greatest situation for internet access ever.

5 county cross country teams qualify for state

For those who wonder if they run cross country in the rain, the answer is definitely yes.
The CIF-SS Finals were held as scheduled, but on the rain course at Mt. San Antonio College on Saturday.

Five San Bernardino County teams qualified for state by finishing in the top seven in their race: Rancho Cucamonga boys in Division 1, Ayala and Serrano girls in Division 2, and Granite Hills boys and girls in Division 3.
In addition, Colony’s Xochitl Navarrete (girls Division 2) and Nick Valenzuela (boys Division 2), Apple Valley’s Hannah Valenzuela (giris Division 3), and Aquinas’ Alyssa Windle (girls Division 5) all qualified for the state meet as individuals, which is next Saturday at Woodward Park in Fresno.
