The Santa Barbara High School boys varsity beach volleyball team began making its playoff push this past Saturday at Will Rogers State Beach.
Without head coach Chad Arneson, who was with the girls varsity team at a tournament in San Jose, the team was coached by Morgan Mainz.
Despite an injury that sidelined standout Barron Mainz, the pairs of Jasper Rhodes/Harrison Schell, Nico Smith/Kyle Skinner and John Chambliss/Levi Janney defeated teams from Marina (2-1) and Camarillo (3-0).
In the final matches of the season before the start of playoffs, the Dons will face Palisades and Windward high schools on Saturday, Sept. 28 at West Beach as part of the Santa Barbara AVP.
