Heralds earn a first-round home match in SoCal Regionals

Whittier Christian’s girls volleyball team drew the No. 4 seed in Southern California and will host a first-round match against La Costa Canyon on Tuesday when the Division II playoffs begin.
The Heralds are coming off a sweep of Mayfield in the CIF-SS Division 2A final Saturday and sport a 33-6 record. Last season, they also won the 2A title but were seeded No. 7 and lost a first-round SoCal match on the road to end their season.
La Costa Canyon finished as runner-up in the San Diego Section Open Division. The Mavericks have a 25-9 record and are seeded No. 5.
Tuesday’s winner will likely face No. 1 seed Corona Santiago in Saturday’s second round. The Sharks are 37-0 this season after topping Oaks Christian 3-1 in the Division 2AA final, surrendering their first set of the season in the victory. Santiago opens the playoffs Tuesday at home against Woodland Hills Taft (31-11), which won the L.A. City Section Division 2 title.
The state finals will be held at Santiago Canyon College in Orange on Dec. 7.
