From page B2 | November 08, 2012 |

Fresh off of its first Sac-Joaquin Section playoff victory since 2008, the Davis High girls volleyball team is headed to Stockton Thursday for a quarterfinal matchup against powerful St. Mary’s.

The seventh-seeded Blue Devils (22-7) trailed early in the first game against Napa on Tuesday at The Cage, but turned things around in a big way to win the first two sets and eventually the match, 27-25, 25-15, 19-25, 25-22.

“It gives me chills. Our girls are playing so hard,” second-year DHS coach Julie Crawford told The Enterprise on Tuesday. “And my girls deserve it so much because they work so hard every single day. I’m really proud of them.”

The co-champions of the Delta Valley Conference were paced by seniors Lyndsay Chambers and Angelina Leigh, along with sophomore Makena Sherwood.

Second-seeded St. Mary’s (21-5), the Tri-City league champs, swept Golden Valley, 25-13, 25-12, 25-15, in its playoff opener on Tuesday.

The Rams were paced by 6-foot-1 junior Jenna Held, who had 11 kills and a pair of aces in the victory. Senior setter Liz Hoover added 20 assists.

Thursday’s match will begin at 7 p.m. inside Morelli Gym.

The Blue Devil girls lacrosse program — Davis High junior varsity and varsity teams for ninth- through 12th-graders — will host a meeting on Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m. in Room N8 at DHS, 315 W. 14th St.
