VOLLEYBALL: After loss, Tigers’ playoff chances uncertain




The varsity volleyball team hosted their annual “Pink Out” game in support of breast cancer awareness. It was a crucial game against the Bella Vista Broncos.

The Tigers lost in 5 sets. The loss leaves the Tigers on the playoff bubble, as a win last night would have secured them a place in playoffs.

As of now, Whitney, Roseville and Cosumnes Oaks are in the running for playoffs. Roseville and Cosumnes Oaks are tied for third at 8-3, and Bella Vista is in fourth at 7-4.

The team won the second and fourth sets of last night’s match, but ultimately lost the last set 15-11.

“It was a really intense game,” defensive specialist Paris Harwell said, “We worked really hard, but those few mistakes added up. It was close but not enough.”

The Tigers’ fate depends on Wednesday’s matches as they face the undefeated Whitney Wildcats, and Bella Vista and Cosumnes Oaks square off.



The JV volleyball team played another league game last night, losing to the Bella Vista Broncos in three sets. However, the Tigers still sit atop the CVC with a record of 9-2.

Freshman middle Kate Slack thinks that the team just had a bad game, and they will be able to bounce back for the last few games.

“We just had a down game, we came out slow and we weren’t able to come back,” Slack said. “We will be able to come back and play well for the last few games of league.”

The Tigers travel to Whitney High School on Wednesday, hoping to pick up another league win.


The freshman girls volleyball team took on the Bella Vista Broncos last night, winning the first two sets by scores of 25-7 and 25-11, respectively. The team remains undefeated and boasts an impressive 11-0 league record.

Freshman defensive specialist Mackenzie Baddley attributes the team’s record to their work ethic and dedication on the court.

“We work really hard in practice, and it has showed in games,” Baddley said. “We have a really good group of girls, and we play together really well.”

The Tigers travel to Whitney High School on Wednesday, looking to maintain their perfect record.
