Guard earns All-CIF award

Girls' volleyball: Bell-Jeff's Cervantes gets second-straight accolade.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — Jocelyn Cervantes has been able to improve as a player for the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' volleyball team during her first three years with the program.

"She has been able to get better, and become a bigger force, in each year she's played for us," Bell-Jeff Coach Miguel Segura said.

That progression is best illustrated by the junior outside hitter's kills totals from the past three seasons. As a freshman in 2008, Cervantes tallied 159. That tally increased to 255 in 2009 and ballooned to 317 this past season.

Along with her kill total, Cervantes made good on 52% of her kill attempts, had 44 aces, 22 blocks, 165 digs and 30 assists to pace Bell-Jeff to its fifth-straight Santa Fe League championship.

She was rewarded by being named the league's player of the year.

Cervantes received another honor this week when she was honored with a CIF Southern Section Division IV first-team accolade. It is the second season the Guard has been named to the All-CIF squad.

Behind Cervantes, Bell-Jeff (17-7) advanced to the Division IVAA semifinals, losing to No. 1 Hemet, 25-16, 25-11, 25-14.

In just three seasons Cervantes has put up impressive numbers, as she will go into her senior season with 731 career kills and 166 aces.
