POLAHS Girls Volleyball Wins CIF-LACS Playoff Opener

Not working by the hour.. Port Of Los Angeles High girls volleyball made short work of visiting Legacy of South Gate, 25-10, 25-11, 25-14 in the first round of the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division IV-V playoffs in a match that only lasted 48 minutes.

Junior outside hitter Tiffany Torres had a career night for the ninth-seeded Polar Bears (17-14-1 overall), as she delivered in a mighty way with 10 kills. Junior setter Maria Mohan added 11 assists and seven aces. Senior outside hitter Angela Wade had seven kills and and five aces, senior outside hitter Kelsea Short chipped in with five aces, and senior libero Myra Munoz added six aces for the Polar Bears. 

No.24 Legacy (4-7) only led once throughout the entire match, starting off the third set with a 2-0 lead, but after a side-out, Munoz's serving took over as she served four aces in a row during a string of POLA scoring 13 unanswered on the way to an easy sweep. 

Torres started off the match hot with five kills in the opening set to go along with three aces from Short. Wade, POLA's leader in kills, did her damage in the first two sets and sat out the third.

The Polar Bears will travel to face eighth-seeded Fulton College Prep of Van Nuys in Thursday's second round.

In Division I, San Pedro lost 25-7, 25-16, 25-20 to third-seeded Polytechnic of Sun Valley. The No.14 Pirates ends their season at 8-7 overall.
