BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — For the third-straight season, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' volleyball team played its way to the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals.
The Guards found themselves in a tough fight early on in their elite-eight contest against a talented Pacifica Christian team. Although the Seawolves showed their ability to fight back, Bell-Jeff displayed an aptitude for closing out games, as it secured a 26-24, 22-25, 25-18, 25-16 Division IVAA victory Saturday at home.
"We were having problems with our serve, and that really threw us off," said Bell-Jeff Coach Miguel Segura, whose squad advanced to the semifinals for the second straight season. "We lost a lot of points with our service mistakes."
