SLO girls volleyball earns No. 1 seed in Division 4

Posted at 9:16 PM, Nov 05, 2018

The Central Coast failed to crown a girls volleyball champion in the CIF-Southern Section and CIF-Central Section this fall, but one local team is getting another shot to win a title in the CIF-State playoffs, San Luis Obispo.

The Tigers were awarded a No. 1 seed in Division 4 in the Southern bracket and will host 16-seed Villanova Prep on Tuesday night.

SLO’s quest for a Central Section title came to an end in the Division 2 semifinals last Thursday at Exeter High School.

Another match comes with another opportunity for this group of Tigers to cap off one of its best seasons in recent memory.

“It feels awesome,” senior libero Molly Eppright said. “I’m just happy to be back in the gym, you know. The last game was kind of tough because you don’t realize it until it’s over. It’s cool to get a second chance.”

“You know, let’s do some damage as much as we can. We get to host which is really, really incredible,” head coach Marci Beddall added. “I don’t really think they’re feeling the pressure because I think this is such a surprise, and like I said, they’re so grateful for this opportunity that they just want to have fun.”

As the No. 1 seed, SLO will get to host the first few rounds at home, a place in which the Tigers haven’t lost all season. The match against Villanova Prep will begin at 7 P.M.
