St. Lucy’s was all smiles after sweeping Los Altos Monday in a nonleague match featuring the top two teams in the area.
St. Lucy’s Priory was without one of its top players, and perhaps its most-important piece Monday night.
Senior Kailey Faust, substituting for All-CIF-Southern Section setter Jackie Macy, had 28 assists and the host Regents took down Los Altos, 25-17, 25-15, 25-16, in nonleague girls volleyball match that featured the areas top two teams.
St. Lucy’s, also getting 10 kills from senior outside hitter Alissa Young and six from junior opposite Jasmine Warmington, improved to 1-1 after opening the season with with a four-game loss to highly-regarded Los Osos last week.
Los Altos, which won the school’s first CIF-SS divisional title last season and began the year ranked No. 1 in Division 2-A and No. 2 in the area, slipped to 1-1.
St. Lucy’s coach Sean Douglas: I think we are extremely lucky to have a setter like Kailey. She works hard and sometimes its difficult when you are playing behind an All-CIF setter like Macy, but today she stepped in and you saw the results. We’re lucky A lot of teams if they lost their No. 1 setter, would be in trouble. We played great today.”
Los Altos coach Jaime Ornelas: “They are a very good team and this wasn’t one of our better days. Like I said before, we have a few veterans and a few players who have never played varsity volleyball.
“We’re still finding our niche. It was one of those days. It was a good match to give us a reality check.”
