Central Valley’s varsity girls volleyball team ended the 2018 season with a 3-2 (25-18, 19-25, 19-25, 25-17, 16-14) loss to visiting Patterson on Senior Night last Wednesday in Ceres.

Brianna Quiroz, Nayeli Ramos, Alyssa Maeyama and Kimberly Camarena suited up for the Hawks for the final time.

"If we would have pushed a little harder, we could have won the match.”

“There was extra motivation because it was Senior Night,” Quiroz said. “It was so close. If we would have pushed a little harder, we could have won the match.”

Quiroz collected eight digs and four kills versus Patterson. 

Ramos had 11 digs, seven kills and two aces.

Maeyama eight digs, one block and one ace.

Camarena had one dig.

Central Valley’s Kaydee Peterman, Anysia Lopez, Anusha Kumar, Azalia Diaz and Nereyda Tavira chipped in as well.

Peterman had nine digs and one ace.

Lopez had seven kills, five digs, four aces and three blocks.

Kumar had six digs and one kill.

Diaz had five kills, two blocks, one dig and one ace.

Tavira had one kill.

Patterson battled back from a two-games-to-one deficit against Central Valley last week.

The Hawks lost the decisive game by just two points.

Central Valley nearly exacted revenge for a 3-0 (25-14, 25-18, 25-23) loss sustained at Patterson on Sept. 24.

“She (coach Regina Selfridge) was happy with the performance we gave,” Quiroz said. “We had fun. We were really competitive. We finally played together as a team.”

Central Valley struggled during its first season in the CCC.

Formerly of the Western Athletic Conference, the Hawks compiled an 0-12 record en route to a last-place finish.
