GVB win against WHS 9.26

Girls Volleyball’s Game of the Week win over Woodbridge was featured on OC Sports Zone.

Uni defeats Woodbridge in five sets and remains in a tie for first place with Beckman in PCL

By Tim Burt, OC Sports Zone

University’s girls volleyball team overcame an early four-point deficit in the fifth set to defeat Woodbridge and take a critical Pacific Coast League match Tuesday night at University, one of the program’s biggest wins.

The scores were 27-29, 25-18, 26-28, 25-18, 25-27, 15-10.

With the victory in front of its home fans, University moved into a tie for first place with Beckman, which is also 4-0. University plays at Beckman Thursday night.

“We’re 4-0, I don’t know the last time the school beat Woodbridge; that’s a nice win for us,” said Uni Coach Garry Currier.

It appears to be University’s first victory over Woodbridge in quite a while, although the length of the Warriors’ winning streak over the Trojans could not be confirmed.

University was led by senior Serena Choi, who had 29 assists, 15 digs, two aces and 12 kills; junior Tory Holmes, who had 20 kills, two blocks and seven digs; Lily Krongold, who had 13 kills and 10 digs and Lauren Cho who had 24 digs and four aces.

Freshmen Allison Rodriguez and Katrina Soto were also solid serving.

“Our senior leadership really kept everything in tact,” Currier said. “In our last tournament in San Diego, we played a lot of matches in one day and the girls really came together and we knew if we got down, we could fight and big players would step up.

“We have worked very hard this year and last year. I have changed the mentality of this program starting last year and the girls have bought into my idealism and practice/game plan.”

Woodbridge coach Alan Ho, who saw his team fall to 2-2 in league play, credited University.

“We didn’t do the best job of executing tonight,” he said. “Uni looked like they were playing with a lot of urgency and didn’t back down.”

Ho said he did not know the last time that University defeated Woodbridge in girls volleyball.

The Orange County Register’s OC Varsity recently covered Uni girls tennis’ match against Campbell Hall.

University girls tennis makes statement with victory at Campbell Hall

PUBLISHED:  | UPDATED: 

University’s girls tennis team made a major statement last week.

 

The visiting Trojans defeated reigning CIF-SS Open Division champion Campbell Hall 13-5 in Studio City.

Last season, Campbell Hall defeated University 11-7 in the section finals.

University senior Cami Brown won both the sets that she played in singles against Campbell Hall last week while sophomore Jane Lee took two of her three sets. Newcomer Tiffany Carrillo-Quintero, a senior from Venezuela, went 1-1 in singles.

The Trojans’ doubles team of Megan Bee and Therese Garcia swept 6-2, 6-1, 6-0. University won eight of nine sets in doubles.

Not surprisingly, the Trojans are ranked No. 1 this week in CIF-SS Division 1, one spot ahead of Campbell Hall.

Portola (Division 3) and Segerstrom (Division 5) also are ranked No. 1 in their respective divisions.

PREVIEW: Struggling University hosts undefeated Segerstrom in nonleague game

It’s been a rough start for University High’s football team and it doesn’t get any easier for the Trojans Friday night.

University hosts undefeated Segerstrom, which has been ranked No. 1 in the CIF Division 10 most of the season and is No. 2 this week, in a nonleague game at 7.

University is 0-4 and coming off a 50-0 loss to Katella last week while Segerstrom is 5-0. The Jaguars defeated Laguna Hills 34-7 Friday night at Laguna Hills.

First year University Coach Chris Hernandez remains upbeat about the season

“I still believe we have the potential to be a competitive team, despite our record,” he said. “We played a tough preseason schedule that wasn’t ideal for the growth of our team that really needed some confidence. …”
