Cate Gives La Reina a Battle in 4-Set Loss

Cate played a solid match but it wasn't enough against a tough La Reina squad, as the Rams fell, 25-18, 19-25, 25-16, 25-18, in Tri-Valley League girls volleyball on Tuesday at Cate.

"Tonight we suffered a loss but our performance was stellar against a very good team," Cate coach Greg Novak said. "We played with a strategy and it was fun to watch the team execute the plan.  The plan paid off and we battled but we encountered too many unforced errors in row."

Delaney Mayfield led the Rams with 12 kills, Ciana Smiley had 6 and Hailey Panzer added 5.

Novak was pleased with the team's serving."We targeted one player with our serve and we made only three service errors off 76 attempts," he said.

He praised the play of freshman libero Grace Blankenhorn. "She continues to do a phenomenal job in the back row."

The Rams (2-3) face another tough opponent on Thursday at Foothill Tech.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
