CV opens non-conference schedule with 3-0 shutout of Johansen
Central Valley High School's new-look varsity volleyball squad shut out Johansen 25-19, 26-24, 25-17 in non-conference play last Thursday in Modesto.

"The girls were scrappy," Hawks head coach Margo Arzola said.

Senior Malynda Lomeli tallied five aces and five assists for Central Valley, which lost five key players from last year's team to graduation.

Downey transfer Leah Faamati added five kills and two blocks.

Newcomer Mia Lorenzo had three aces, three digs and three kills.

"Our communication was much better, but we still have a lot of growing to do as a team," Arzola said.

Spartans 3, Hawks 1

Central Valley lost 25-17, 21-25, 25-23, 25-11 to Grace Davis during a CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Foundation Game on Monday, Aug. 27 in Ceres.

Lomeli collected five aces, four assist and one kill in defeat.

Lorenzo chipped in with four aces, four digs, two assists and one kill.

Faamati (four blocks and three kills), Jessica Martinez (four kills and one block), Lynaya Lerma (three kills, three aces and one block), Kirsten Berengue (two aces and one assist), Casey McCloskey (one kill) and Nicholette Mendez (one digs) also contributed.

The Ceres High-Grace Davis contest does not count towards team standings. Foundation games raise money for the section's scholarship program and Women in Sports Conference.
