Long Beach Volleyballers Earn All-CIF Honors

We mentioned in the fall that girls’ volleyball is the top sport going in Long Beach right now, and the All-CIF honors released on Monday certainly agree with us. Long Beach Poly’s Adonia Faumuina was All-CIF in Division 1. Lakewood’s Laura Williams made the list in Division 2, Wilson’s Risa Sena made it in Division 3 and St. Anthony’s Isabella Bareford is honored in Division 4. A trio of Avalon Lancers cracked the list in Division 9: Yuliana Vega, Virginia Soto, and Daniella Moreno.

Even more exciting is that only Bareford is graduating, meaning there’s a ton of talent coming back for the fall of 2020.
