The Arrowhead League is our only other league with multiple Elite 8 teams in Sherman Indian and Carnegie.

History being made:

The 2nd year of CIF-SS’ competitive equity format means that schools who haven’t had success recently in volleyball are getting a chance to succeed in postseason play:

Elite 8 participants Aquinas, Rancho Christian, Paloma Valley, Sherman Indian, and Orange Vista have all made it to this point for the first time in their history.

Road Warriors:

On Thursday it was Redlands Adventist making the lengthy trip to Lone Pine. Saturday it’s Orange Vista’s turn. It’s approximately 215-240 miles depending on which route you take.

End of the Season awards:
