Boys Volleyball: Sacred Heart Cathedral defeats Mt. Madonna to seal first CCS title

By Jeremy Balan

SAN JOSE – The Sacred Heart Cathedral boys volleyball team was letting top-seeded Mt. Madonna back in the match.

After Sacred Heart won the first game of the Central Coast Section Division II championship with relative ease, Mt. Madonna led 20-13 in the second, but suddenly, the Hawks couldn’t get the ball past the Irish block.

Spurred by a stretch of six point-scoring blocks, the Irish went on a 12-3 run to end the game and took a commanding two-game lead, then finished off Mt. Madonna in the third to seal a 25-16, 25-23, 25-19 win on Tuesday at Independence High School.


Boys Volleyball: Lowell takes down defending-champ Galileo to win 7th AAA title

By Zack Farmer

Unlike many of Lowell High School’s teams in other sports, the boys volleyball squad was aware that they were an underdog heading into the Academic Athletic Association title game against defending-champ Galileo on Friday night at Lincoln High School.

The Cardinals used that to their advantage and after dropping the first game, swept the final three to beat Galileo 22-25, 29-27, 25-22, 31-29 and claim their seventh league title.

Boys Volleyball: St. Ignatius sweeps Lowell for fourth-straight City victory

By Jeremy Balan

This season’s St. Ignatius boys volleyball team isn’t at the level of last year’s West Catholic Athletic League tournament championship winning squad yet.

For now, the Wildcats will have to settle for just being the best team in San Francisco.

St. Ignatius swept visiting Lowell 25-12, 25-15, 25-21 in non-league play on Wednesday and has already taken down Academic Athletic Association contenders Galileo and Lincoln, as well as rival Sacred Heart Cathedral this season.
