Tough Tuesday for Area Volleyball

3 of 4 local teams fall in Tuesday’s Opening round

by Arnie Palu

Bishop Union, Mammoth, Lone Pine, and Big Pine volleyball all opened play Tuesday in their respective playoff brackets, only Mammoth survives to play in round two.  All three losing teams hit the road Tuesday while Mammoth used their home court advantage advancing to Thursdays second round.

Mammoth Huskies

Coach John Morris reports that the Huskies defeated St. Bernard 25-6, 25-9, 25-19 and advance to the 2nd round of the CIF Southern Section 4A tournament on Thursday.   Mammoth is awaiting the winner of Katella and Ramona Convent.

Indivdiual Statistics:
Callie Mowat 2 aces, 4 blocks, 13 kills.
Taylor Sanders 8 kills.
Kira Shultz 2 aces, 3 kills.
McKenna Smith 3 aces, 25 assists.

Bishop Union Broncos

The Broncos fell in five games to Taft high school Tuesday.  Coach Linda Frigerio’s comments, “Going in ranked #9, we were prepared to battle the #8 ranked Wildcats.  Based on playing them in playoffs round 2 last year, we knew we again would be neck and neck and would have to have to play their best to have a chance at victory. After 5 grueling games with scores of 19-25, 25-23,27-29,9-5 Taft came up on top and we wrapped up our season going down swinging. I am incredibly proud of every single girl on this volleyball team for a season that exceeded my expectations.  I believed going in to the season that we would be rebuilding because we are so young.  With only 2 seniors I anticipated the lack of experience would be a detriment.  Instead, they played hard, fought hard and  powered through every match, many of which went 5 games, and lost with character and won with dignity every time.”

Lone Pine Golden Eagles

Coach Mel Joseph’s 1st round report:
Lone Pine traveled to Panorama City on Tuesday to take on St. Genevieve in the First Round of the CIF SS 4-A girls volleyball playoffs.  The Lady Eagles ended their season falling in three games to the number 9 ranked Valiants 18-25, 13-25, 19-25. “ We played well, this team was definitely beatable, we just make some key errors at crucial times that allowed St. Genevieve to create separation.  Having competed in the tough DML against teams like Desert and Mammoth, the girls were well prepared for post season play.  Having competed all season long with only seven players, I am proud of what we accomplished, we met every goal that was set from making the Gold Bracket at the Cal City Tournament to qualifying for post season”.  Coach Joseph did bring up Jessianne Joiner, Celia Ray, and Juliann Jones from the DML Champion JV squad noting that all three had positive touches on the ball in this post season match.  Coach Joseph would like to thank all the fans for their support throughout this season including to 40 plus that made the trip south on Tuesday. Coach Joseph would also like to thank first year assistant and JV Coach Courtnie Hunter for her work this season. LPHS says farewell to six seniors (Niki Martinez, Abby Southey, Lena Cariou, Katelyn Button, Lacie Jones, and Katie Lacey) and wishes them good luck in their endeavors.  Coach Joseph looks forward to his 25th season as the Lady Eagles Skipper.
