Fundraising Update: Our final week of coverage

Fundraising Update: Our final week of coverage 

Dear readers and supporters,

I have dreaded writing this update for a long time, but we currently do not have enough funds to continue the daily operations of the web site.

If our financial situation does not drastically improve, this will be our last week of coverage, with the final date of coverage coming on Sunday, Feb. 3.

I’m working on several different ideas to hopefully extend our reporting, but I felt it was important to update all of you on our current situation.

Girls Volleyball: Lowell swept out of state playoffs by Granite Bay

Girls Volleyball: Lowell swept out of state playoffs by Granite Bay 

By Jeremy Balan

As dominant as the Lowell High School girls volleyball program has been in the Academic Athletic Association since the San Francisco Section began playing the sport in 1974, it has never been able to carry that success over into the CIF State Tournament.

That trend continued on Tuesday, when the seventh-seeded Cardinals dropped their opening-round Division I matchup to second-seeded Granite Bay 25-15, 25-16, 25-15 at Lowell.

SAN JOSE – On a good day, the Sacred Heart Cathedral girls volleyball team can go toe-to-toe with Valley Christian.

Top-seeded Valley Christian emphatically enforced its claim as the best Central Coast Section Division III team with a 25-22, 25-16, 25-17 win over the Irish in the section championship at Independence High School.

A three-year championship drought entering the year felt like ages to the Lowell High School girls volleyball program that had won 27 of the 38 Academic Athletic Association titles since the San Francisco Section began playing the sport in 1974.

But the Cardinals’ 26-6, 25-16, 17-25, 25-12 win over Washington on Thursday at Kezar Pavilion clinched their 28th AAA title and may be the first step of the new Lowell dynasty.
