Who will come out on top of the Mountain Pass League?
It feels like school just started, but the first half of fall sports is already over, and teams have begun to prepare for the CIF playoffs. Most of the non-league games are over, and the rest of the games are now vital if these girls want to play in the playoffs this year. San Jacinto Girls Volleyball team is barley over .500 with a non-league record of 6-5, they have played some tough opponents in this stretch and at times have looked poised to make a deep run. At other times it has seemed that they struggle to find their identity.
Citrus Hill’s team isn’t much better hovering near the bottom of the league with a current record of 3-3. Beaumont High school is sitting at the very bottom of the Mountain Pass League a record of 1-7 including a seven-game losing streak. Tahquitz High School is also at the bottom with a 3-6 record.
Right now Hemet High looks ready to make a run at the top spot, but that might be hard with West Valley in the way. Hemet High currently has an outstanding record of 14-4 and has played tough opponents like Heritage, Corona, and Citrus Valley. Their only losses have come from Paloma, Citrus Valley, Chaparral, and Palm Desert. If they continue to play the way they have, they are a big threat to the rest of the league.
However, West Valley is currently number one in league with a 12-0 record. The two teams won’t meet up until October first in what promises to be an exciting matchup. Many say that West Valleys Schedule isn’t as difficult as some of these other schools, so right now they are going to have to prove to the rest of the league that they are the real deal. Six seniors and three juniors anchor west Valleys team. That is nine upperclassmen on a thirteen player roster.

Schools usually charge a couple of dollars at the door to come to spectate and offer refreshments. All proceeds go to help the school keep its program and buy them nice equipment. So bring your wallet and an empty stomach when you come to watch these girls give it their all on the hardwood.
