GLENDORA- The St. Lucy Regents made history last night, beating Charter Oak in straight sets and finishing league play with a perfect 10-0 record. But last night was marked by more than just the unprecedented perfect season, last night was a bittersweet goodbye to six remarkable senior players, Desi Villajin, Eryn Young, Marissa Hageman, Dianna Rohrer, Vanessa Caustrita and Arden Davis. These ladies have represented St. Lucy's admirably, on and off of the court, and will be greatly missed next year.
Emotion may have gotten the best of the Regents for a moment, as Charter Oak started set one by taking the first two points. St. Lucy's took the next 10. St. Lucy's cruised to a 25-6 victory in the set and Eryn Young picked up two of her three kills in the process. Set two came down to two factors: dominance and presence. Regents win 25-15. Set three was as close as Charter Oak would get to a victory, as they were able to tie the score at 17. The Regents buckled down when they needed to and finished off the match and the season with a 25-22 win.
Tonight's stat leaders were Desiree Villajin with 12 digs, Vanessa Caustrita with 6 kills and Juliet McClure with 29 assists and 3 aces. Elsewhere in the Sierra, Ayala took care of Claremont and Chino Hills beat South Hills, causing a tie for third place. Claremont and Chino Hills will play off for the final CIF berth on Wednesday at 3:30. Post season play begins next week and the CIF pairings will be announced on Saturday, November 3, at 12:30 pm.
