Country Day captures another league title


By Phil Dailey

The La Jolla Country Day volleyball team ended the regular season with its third consecutive league title last week. The team had to win their last two matches and came up with great efforts in both.

On Tuesday, the Torreys beat Francis Parker, 3-1, and were led by Sheridan Rice who had 22 digs and 10 kills. Cassidy Rooke had 15 digs to complete the great defensive effort.

The team also had to win on Thursday against Tri-City Christian to win the league title outright. The Torreys won with a 3-1 score.

The CIF playoffs begin this week where the Torreys have earned a bye with the No. 1 seed. The team will play at home on Saturday at 5 p.m. between the winner of Horizon and Holtville.

The Bishop’s School secured the No. 3 seed in the Division IV tournament and also received a first-round bye. The Knights will take on the winner of High Tech High and Mission Vista at home on Saturday at 5 p.m.

In Division III, La Jolla High secured the No. 2 seed and with a win Tuesday night, will play again tonight at 5 p.m. at home against either Olympian or Our Lady of Peace.
