St. Lucy’s rises to the occassion again, beats La Salle in thrilling five-set rematch, 15-12 in fifth

St. Lucy’s beat La Salle in five sets, 28-30, 25-20 25-18, 22-25 and 15-12 in a rematch from last year’s CIF-SS Divisional finals, which gave the Regents back-to-back championships.

Story: It is nearly two months before the CIF-Southern Section volleyball playoffs begin. But La Salle and St. Lucy’s Priory high schools did not act as if it was that far off on Wednesday evening. The teams acted as if the nonleague match was the CIF-SS Division 1A finals. Heck, it could have been. The teams met for the Division 2AA title last year. Wednesday, the Regents managed to survive a five-game, 2-hour, 15-minute marathon.

    The masses often blame the financial fall of athletes on foolishness.

    As for St. Lucy’s, you play the best, you become the best. These losses (Durango Tournament) will pay big dividends during league and CIF.
