Glendora wins: Thursday was a day to remember for senior setter Riley Jacobs, who signed with UNLV in the morning before leading the Glendora High girls volleyball team to the CIF-SS Division 2A quarterfinals with a 25-13, 25-15, 25-13 win over Los Altos.
Jacobs did a little bit of everything in an effort to keep her high school career alive, tallying 22 assists, eight aces, five kills, and four blocks against the Conquerors (18-12).
“She’s been doing really well,” Glendora head coach Clara Lowden said. “In the second half of this season she has really stepped up. She has got her blocking down and had some great blocks tonight, and her sets have been good. I’m really happy with the way she performed.”

Tribskin Pick’em: Lots of easy choices in Round I

Robledo Note: Most of the picks this week were slam dunks, I don’t expect a lot of upsets. Some of the tough games were taking Covina over Arroyo, Bonita over Don Lugo, Baldwin Park over Schurr and St. Francis over Warren. Everything else I feel strong about. We’ll see.

SOUTH PAS WELCOMES SHOT AT GLENDORA: “We’re aiming to try and win it, we’re not just happy to be here,” first-year Tigers head coach C.B. Richards said. “Anybody we could have played would have been tough. Matchups-wise, Glendora has Fink but there’s unknown guys there, too, that don’t get a lot of press. And they’re very well-coached.”
