Harvard-Westlake 3, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy 0: The Tologs fell to the archrival Wolverines in straight games for the second time this season in Thursday night’s 25-19, 25-15, 25-19 Mission League road loss.
“I think it was more of the inexperience of playing in a harsh environment and just trying to climb over that ledge right there where you see what’s going on and you understand what’s going on, but then it’s putting all of that into actually playing volleyball,” said first-year Sacred Heart Coach Ernest Banaag, whose team slipped to 10-11 and 4-3 in league. “They’re sort of struggling with the fact that they know what to do, but they just can’t seem to put it all together.”
Arcadia 3, Glendale 1: The Nitros hung tough with the Apaches, 25-27, 26-28, 25-23, 24-26, in Thursday’s home Pacific League match behind 10 kills from Kirsten Cabarong, seven kills from Kimberly Coffman and six kills from Serena Snaer.
Sevana Stepanian added 32 digs for Glendale (7-10, 4-7).
Burbank 3, Crescenta Valley 1: Allison Reik notched 10 kills for the Falcons in Thursday’s 25-14, 23-25, 25-18, 25-9 Pacific League loss.
Nanette Grigorian added 19 digs for Crescenta Valley (6-9, 4-7).
