Volleyball Splits League Title with Stallions

A blistering five-game win streak capped off the end of the San Clemente girls volleyball season, putting the onus on San Juan Hills to win its final South Coast League game to determine who would take home the league hardware.

The Stallions, who needed a win against the Dolphins in order to finish in a tie for first with the Tritons at the top of the league standings, ended up defeating Dana Hills, 3-1, on Nov. 2. The two teams are now co-league champions.

The Tritons (13-13, 6-2) caught fire over the final two weeks of the regular season, defeating all four league members in the final round of competition, including two victories over Dana Hills.

The Tritons will await the release of the CIF-SS Division 1AA playoff pairings, which will be issued on Nov. 6.

The Tritons, who posted a team score of 416, were led by Isabella Seeburger , who shot 79 and finished t-16. Madi Wiedeman shot an 80 (t-21), Erica Cornelius carded 84 (t-36), Olga Mihalik shot 85 (t-40), Aria Dalkas shot 88 (t-56) and Olivia French shot an 89 (t-60) to round out the Tritons rotation.

The Tritons breezed past Viewpoint in the first round of postseason competition on Nov. 4, defeating the visitors 17-1. The Tritons will host Newport Harbor in the second round on Nov. 6.
