Boys Water Polo: St. Ignatius 18, Mitty (San Jose) 13

After falling behind 3-0 after the first quarter, the sixth-seeded Wildcats (15-10) responded with force against the seventh-seeded Monarchs (7-18) in the first round of the West Catholic Athletic League playoffs on Monday.

St. Ignatius outscored visiting Mitty 10-3 in the second quarter and rode a standout performance from junior Maximillian Schaum to advance to play third-seeded St. Francis in the league quarterfinals.

Schaum had a game-high six goals, fellow junior Reilley May added five more and six other Wildcats tallied scores, including senior goalkeeper Patrick Lynch, who scored from the face of his own net with 5:43 left in the third quarter.

Girls Volleyball: Jewish Community 3, St. Lawrence (Santa Rosa), 0

The Wolves (12-5), may have been the higher seed (third in the North Division) in the Private School Athletic League playoffs, but played like the favorites against the Celtics (10-5), which were the South Division’s No. 2 seed, in a 25-16, 25-10 25-20 win on Monday at Mid-Peninsula High School in Menlo Park.

Jewish Community got a significant lift in its serving game and got a combined 10 aces from Jessica Berman, Zoe Morgan-Weinman and Sharon Agai.

    I think you mean “may not have been” (because they weren’t) in the Jewish Community story. Also San Francisco Christian’s volleyball team won their PSAL quarterfinal match last night.

      They were the higher seed. Three is higher than two.

      Also, San Francisco Christian does not send us its schedules, results or communicate with us at all (despite years of countless e-mails and calls), and it doesn’t post schedules online, so unless it is on someone else’s schedule, we normally have no idea if they have games going on.
