PREVIEW: St. Anthony at La Serna CIF Girls’ Volleyball

Division 5: St. Anthony @ La Serna, 6 p.m.

The Saints (19-10) had to sweat out an at-large bid into the playoffs out of the Del Rio League, but they made it in. Now the challenge is traveling to a talented 16-7 La Serna team.

“The bid was a top-off to the challenging season, our team earned it,” said St. Anthony coach Alicia Lemau’u. “La Serna has always been strong, it will be a good battle between two good teams.”

If the Saints can win, they’ll face the winner of Cerritos and Paramount in the second round on Saturday–they’d be at home either way.
