As for the CIF Southern Section playoff pairings, those were released Saturday, Oct. 16, and below are the results for the first few rounds of the CIF Southern Section girls’ volleyball playoffs, as well as our ‘Player of the Week.’

Zoey Carter, Senior, Lakeside ‘Player of the Week’:

In last Saturday’s five set thriller the senior came through big as Lakeside survived a rally from a determined Pilibos side to advance and reach Wednesday’s quarterfinals. She recorded 21 kills & 6 aces as the Lancers will advance to a match against either Tarbut V’Torah (home) or Eisenhower (away).

Lancers coach Dena Lindsey said this about her senior “Zoey came into our program from Temescal Canyon upbeat and ready to work this season. Her grit, commitment, and determination are what coaches dream about in a player. She had raw skill when she came in but has become a consistent and smarter player this season. I am proud that I’ve played a small part of her volleyball journey.”
