SVC stopped by Francis Parker in regional final

FOR OCVARSITY.COM

SAN DIEGO – Disappointment and excitement, those were the emotions felt by the Saddleback Valley Christian girls volleyball team on Tuesday night.

The disappointment came from the result of SVC's first trip to the CIF Division IV Southern California Regional finals.

Top-seeded Francis Parker of San Diego (36-2) advanced to the Division IV state final by defeating second-seeded SVC, 25-13, 25-17, 21-25, 25-12, at Francis Parker High.

The loss ends the season for a young Warriors (30-6) team, which finished as runner-up in CIF-SS Division 4AA.

"I just told the girls I'm super proud of them and told our seniors I wish we could have done it for them," SVC coach Jon Greene said.

"Francis (Parker) is tough. We knew coming in we'd have to play flawless and kind of have to catch them on a bad night."

Other then a loss in the third set, the Lancers played pretty much flawless. Francis Parker jumped to a 14-4 lead in the final set and didn't look back as it claimed the victory, 25-12.

After the disappointment of the loss, excitement quickly set in, as the realization that SVC, which features only two seniors, will return the majority of its squad the next two seasons.

"I'm really excited, because my whole team is full of sophomores," sophomore Heidi Dyer said.

"So we can just stay together for the next two years."

Dyer had eight kills to go along with three aces. Senior Chelsea Duhs led the Warriors with nine kills, while Kaitlin O'Brien recorded 17 digs.
