Sports Round-Up

The spring 2022 regular season is wrapping up and many teams are now awaiting the release of CIF selections and brackets.

The CVHS boys’ volleyball team is the first CVHS team to officially receive an invitation to the Spring 2022 CIF Tournament. They’ll travel to Los Angeles today (Thursday, April 28) to take on Gold Coast League champion Windward High School in the first round of the CIF-SS tournament. Other area teams earning bids to the CIF-SS boys’ volleyball tournament include St. Francis traveling to Downey to play San Gabriel League champion Warren High School and Pacific League champion Burroughs High School (Burbank), which earned a bye to the second round of the tournament.

The CVHS girls’ softball team has one game remaining in its regular season, with a final showdown with Arcadia set for today (Thursday, April 28) at 3:30 p.m. at CVHS – its senior night for a group of outstanding athletes that have seen a lot of adversity and have stayed in contention. The winner of that game will be the Pacific League champion and the coaches and players are encouraging the community to come out and support the Falcon girls.

The CVHS boys’ baseball team also has one game remaining. But while the boys have locked up fourth place in the Pacific League, Friday night’s regular season closer at Arcadia is still extremely important for both squads. A win for the Falcons would significantly strengthen their case for a CIF at-large or wild card bid while putting Arcadia at risk of being leapfrogged for the Pacific League title while a win for Arcadia would guarantee them the League championship.
