Girls Volleyball: St. Lucy’s and Chino Hills lead the way in CIF-SS postseason awards

Clay Fowler, Staff Writer
St. Lucy’s senior Deanna Dalton was named the CIF-SS Division 2AA volleyball Player of the Year on Tuesday, and St. Lucy’s coach Sean Douglas was named Coach of the Year after leading the Regents to their first CIF championship in school history. Dalton, who finished with 242 kills and 250 digs, helped St. Lucy’s win the CIF-SS Division 2AA title on Nov. 20 and the CIF State tournament Southern California final on Nov. 30. Senior middle blocker Alissa Young and junior setter Jackie Macy of St. Lucy’s were named first-team all-CIF. (To continue, click thread).

Senior Jordyn Siko and junior Heather Trueman of the Chino Hills team that lost the CIF final to St. Lucy’s also were named first-team all-CIF.

Los Osos (and University of Georgia- bound) middle blocker Jasmine Eatmon, league MVP with 255 kills and 43 blocks for the Baseline League champions, was the lone local player named to the all-CIF first team in Division 1A.

Kathleen Torres, a junior outside hitter from Diamond Bar, was selected first-team all-CIF with a whopping 329 kills and 240 digs for the Brahmas, who finished fourth in the Hacienda League but reached the quarterfinals.

Nicole Ellis, senior outside hitter from Valle Vista League champ and Division 3A No. 2 seed San Dimas, was named first-team all-CIF after compiling 199 kills and 170 digs.

Summit’s Lashay Cason was selected to the Division 4AA all-CIF first team with 189 kills on the season.

  • St. Lucys Rules

    What an amazing year for Deanna Dalton. She is without a doubt the Tribune Player of the Year. What a Stud!

  • Others are worthy…

    Don’t penalize other kids, some in tough divisions of the player of the year honor. The other Studs are Eaton from Osos, Siko the sierra league mvp from Chino, and Ashley – Bonita’s Setter. They are all worthy!

  • Just sayin’

    1) Eaton is not in this coverage area.

    2) For CIF II-A the only Bonita person named was Katie Kirby. And from Los Altos Jazmin Russell.

    3) Dee Dee Dalton was the MVP of the Sierra League and Div II-AA CIF.

    If we are putting nominations for All area, it would be nice to see if the whole thing wasn’t outside hitters. Liberos, DS, OPP, MB’s should all be recognized for the best in their best position.

    Another factor that should be considered is head to heads. There were teams that had hitters that had 300 kills but when they went up against a highly ratd team, they were shut down.

    Leading the nominations, St. Lucy’s & Chino Hills starting six for each team should be nominated 1st and 2nd team All Area. How can you not? Bonita and Los Altos who represented well in their own respective leagues should also have their star players nominated.

    Fred and his group have done an EXCELLENT job of recognizing the top VBall players (and coaches) over the years.
    If one looks at last year as an example, the MVP was an Outside with three other Outsides (or Opposites), one Middle, one Setter and one Libero making First Team.
    The Second Team was comprised of three Outsides (or Opposites), one Middle, and two Setters. Hard to argue with the mix if you are only picking six per team.
    I am not about to sit here and try to pick this year’s group as this is perhaps the toughest year ever. Adding Chino Hills Huskies to the “coverage area” only made the choices that much more difficult.
    Maxfeldt and Kirby (Bonita), Russell and Brown (Los Altos), Gomez (South Hills), Ellis and Land (San Dimas), Letourneau (Glendora), Stone (Amat), Quiocho and Ervin (Walnut), Pham (West Covina), Torres (Diamond Bar), Siko, Trueman and Haebe (Chino Hills), Macy, Warmington, Sifuentes, Callen and Young (St. Lucys) are just a few of the area’s top players-each worthy of recognition for their hard-work and dedication to the sport.
    By the way, I have listed twenty names and easily left off (not intentionally) twenty more.
    Having had the chance to see St Lucy’s play twice this year plus their CIF Championship game and run in the State playoff, I would have to agree with the previous blog posts-the SGVT MVP should go to Dalton. Her play on the court makes her deserving. She is the real deal. Dalton is a complete player-hitting, passing, and digging balls with great precision. Her court awareness and her leadership on the court are easily noticed when you watch the young lady play. She encourages every girl on the court to give their best effort. Dalton recognizes the contributions of her teammates and challenges every girl to get the “next” point regardless of who was awarded the previous. No yelling, no screaming, no finger pointing even in their loss to Troy. Couple that with the successes the team has accomplished and I am hard pressed to find an alternative.

  • Just sayin’

    Robert: Absolutely. Fred and Steve have done an excellent job. The suggestion was in response to seeing the CIF Division 1st team picks, not SGV’s. Sorry for the confusion.

    Tough picks across the board this year. Robert’s assessment was pretty dead on. Lots of talent to choose from in this area and like Robert said, adding Chino Hills to the area adds to the mix.

    OH: Dalton (SL), Siko (CH), Trueman (CH), Kirby (BHS), Russell (LA), Ellis (SD)
    OPP: Warmington (SL)
    S: Anderson (CH), Macy (SL), Maxfeldt (BHS)
    L: Haebe (CH), Si Fuentes (SL)
    MB: Callen (SL), Young (SL), Dennis (BHS), Brown (LA)

    These were the noteables that stuck out this season and came out with the big plays against the best. Time and time and time again. These are the players who went against everyone in the area and prevailed.

  • Question

    Who won their League’s MVP?

    Sierra – ?
    Valle Vista – ?
    Hacienda – ?

    The coaches pick league MVP so I would pick one of the MVP’s as player of the year after reviewing their stats.

  • I know this would be better suited to an email, but do you mind if I ask what WordPress theme you’re using for this website? With the right changes (colors, banners, etc.) it would be perfect for my blog.

  • An awesome blog post, I just given this onto a student who was doing a little analysis on that. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I discovered it for him… smile.. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thank you for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and enjoy learning more on this topic. If possible, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more info? It is extremely helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blogpost!

  • I hate to sound like a nitpick, but your grammar is just…deplorable. I want to be interested in this, I really do. But it seems you spent so much time on the design (which, I will say, is amazing) that you forgot that people actually have to read your blog. Clean this up…PLEASE. It could be so much bigger if you just did some work.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
