Exeter looks to end CVC’s league win streak + volleyball rankings

Exeter High will take a second crack at stopping the Central Section’s longest-running league winning streak in girls volleyball – and attempt to force a tie atop the Central Sequoia League standings – at Central Valley Christian on Oct. 18.

The Bee’s Central Section No. 14-ranked Monarchs (25-6, 5-1) were on the verge of ending CVC’s league winning streak at 77 matches on Sept. 29 when they were up 2-0 and leading the third set 20-18 before the Cavaliers rallied for an 18-25, 25-27, 26-24, 25-23, 15-13 victory in Exeter.

Unranked CVC (13-17, 6-0) has since won four more matches to run its league winning streak to 82 in a row.

The rematch is set for 6 p.m. in Visalia. It’s one of three showdowns for league leads around the section Oct. 18.

No. 18 Yosemite (30-4, 5-1) is set to play at No. 16 Liberty-Madera Ranchos (27-1, 5-1) at 6 p.m. in a matchup of two of the three teams tied for first-place in the North Sequoia League. No. 17 Sierra (21-3) is also part of the three-way tie. The Chieftains host Liberty on Oct. 20.

Yosemite handed Liberty its only loss of the season – 25-18, 25-13, 25-18 – on Sept. 29. The Hawks went on to beat Sierra 26-28, 26-24, 19-25, 25-20, 26-24 on Oct. 4, then the Chieftains forced the three-way tie when they topped the Badgers 19-25, 25-15, 25-14, 25-20 on Oct. 14.

And in Tulare, No. 13 Mission Oak (23-7, 5-1) hosts No. 19 Monache (21-7, 6-0) in a clash of the top two teams in the East Yosemite League. Monache beat the defending league champion and section Division III runner-up Hawks 25-20, 24-26, 25-23, 21-25, 15-11 when they met Set. 29 in Porterville.
