The CIF Southern
Section 4A Division in girls volleyball is going to be a competitive journey to
the title game. Santa Monica schools are all in the mix with Pacifica
Christian, New Roads, and Crossroads being invited to the dance.
Christian, which claimed the Liberty League crown, was rewarded for the
outstanding play during the regular season by receiving a bye in the first
round of the playoffs. That wasn’t the case with either New Roads or
Crossroads. Both teams opened up the postseason with games played on Tuesday.
Crossroads, the Delphic League champs, took
out Gladstone in three sets, winning 25-19, 25-22 and 25-19 in the opening
round matchup. New Roads, which finished third in the Coastal League, didn’t fare
as well against their first round, playoff opponent.
New Roads lost the match in three sets to
Desert Christian Academy on Tuesday. The Jaguars wend down in defeat 25-9,
25-10 and 25-19 to Desert Christian Academy on the road to end their season.
as Pacifica Christian, the Seawolves could be playing Saturday, should they get
by Thursday’s opponent. The Seawolves have a lot to be playing for after coming
up short in their title quest last season. Pacifica Christian is ranked sixth
in their division.
