Top Seeds Prepare To Host CIF Open Division Regional Championships

The march to Santiago Canyon College and next Friday’s Open Division title match continued last night for eight teams. Here is a recap of that action.

SoCal Open Division Semifinal Results

No. 1 Torrey Pines def. No. 5 Redondo Union 25-18, 17-25, 25-16, 8-25, 18-16

No. 2 Mater Dei def. No. 3 Marymount 25-16, 15-25, 25-14, 10-25, 15-8 

It’s no surprise that the match between No. 5 Redondo and No. 1 Torrey Pines went to five sets, but what was interesting was how each set besides the last was an absolute blowout. In the fourth, Torrey Pines lost 8-25, and yet somehow was able to rally and win the fifth and the match.

This regional final will be a very interesting one to watch, so heat up your Thanksgiving leftovers and join us on FloVolleyball Saturday at 6 PM PT for match between No. 1 Torrey Pines and No. 2 Mater Dei. 

SoCal Open Division Semifinal Standout

Torrey Pines senior outside hitter Jaden Whitmarsh posted 16 kills and 16 digs. Her teammate junior setter/opposite Emily Fitzner recorded 16 kills, hitting .419, in addition to 24 assists in a five-set win over Redondo Union. 

NorCal Open Division Semifinal Results

No. 1 Archbishop Mitty def. No. 4 St. Ignatius 35-33, 24-26, 25-15, 25-23

No. 2 Marin Catholic def. No. 3 Turlock 25-21, 25-22, 23-25, 25-10

The first two sets of the semifinal between top-seeded Archbishop Mitty and No. 4 St. Ignatius went to extra points, with the opening game going all the way to 35-33 before a winner could be named. After losing the second, however, Mitty took firm hold of the momentum and won the third and fourth in relatively non-dramatic fashion.

Marin Catholic dispatched Turlock in four, putting an exclamation point on its advance to the regional championship with a 25-10 victory in the final set. 

Mitty will be going for its seventh-consecutive regional title on Saturday night. Tune in right here on FloVolleyball at 6 PM PT to watch it live.
