Girls’ volleyball to play in CIF Finals

The girls’ varsity volleyball team entered CIF semifinals having defeated opponent Notre Dame twice previously this season and exited having punched its ticket to CIF Finals at Santiago Canyon College Nov. 23, conquering the Knights 3-2 Tuesday night.

The two rivals continually exchanged blows in the CIF semifinal matchup, splitting the first four sets to force the all-or-nothing fifth game. The Wolverines narrowly edged out the Knights 20-18 in the decisive game to clinch their spot in the championship game and erupt the Harvard-Westlake Fanatic crowd onto the Notre Dame home court.

Saturday’s final in Orange County will pit the Wolverines against La Salle in their final test on their road to the CIF Championship.
