PREVIEW: CIF Girls’ Volleyball Second Round

The562’s coverage of Long Beach Volleyball in the 2022-23 school year is sponsored by Misty May-Treanor and the Dream in Gold Foundation.

A pair of Moore League girls’ volleyball teams will resume their playoff journeys on Saturday in the second round of the CIF-SS Division 3 playoffs.

The Wilson Bruins will be back at home, hosting unbeaten Serrano for a 3 p.m. contest. The Diamondbacks have a long trek to Long Beach from the other side of Mount San Antonio, and need to get back to campus for a school dance, which necessitated the earlier start time.

Serrano is 23-0 on the season, having dropped just three sets during the entire regular season. In round one on Thursday, Serrano survived a five-set battle with West Ranch.

Wilson dropped the opening set against Bonita in round one, but cruised for a comfortable four-set win.

Elsewhere, Millikan will be facing top-seeded Alemany at Noon. The match will be played at Mission College. Alemany beat Mayfield in four sets in round one while Millikan earned a road sweep at Paloma Valley.
