Cate swept Mary Star in a second-round match of the CIF-SS Division 7 girls volleyball playoffs on Saturday in San Pedro. The scores with 25-20, 25-15, 25-20.

The Rams had to deal with some strong jump-serving from Mary Star.

"We were up 24 -17 in the first set and the powerful jump serves brought Mary Star to 24-21," coach Greg Novack said. "After a timeout we were able to break her serve and Kenzie Davidson sealed the set with a kill.

"The same thing happened in the second set," he added. "We were up 16-7 and their serving managed to score 8 points to make it 17-15. Our offense got back on track to outscore them 8-0 and win 25-15."

Freshman Elise Guerrand-Hermes led Cate's attack with 9 kills, Kenzie Davidson had 7 and Maya Blattberg had 6.

Libero Grace Blankenhorn "did a great job controlling the defense," Novack said. She collected 10 digs and passed extremely well off of serve-receive.

The Rams next play at top-seeded Linfield Christian in a quarterfinal match on Wednesday.

In Division 3, Dos Pueblos was swept by top-seeded Village Christian in Division 3, 25-13, 25-13, 25-13.

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!
