GVB: Cate sweeps Thacher to set up title showdown

Freshman Delaney Mayfield put down 13 kills, and Cate’s girls volleyball team romp to a sweep over Thacher in a Condor League match on Saturday in Ojai. The scores were 25-15, 25-7, 25-9.

The win leaves the CIF 4-A Division top-ranked Rams at 7-0 in league play and 13-1 overall, and sets up a showdown with Laguna Blanca for an outright Condor League title or a share of the title.

Cate hit a robust .387 as a team in Saturday’s sweep. Coach Greg Novak lauded the play of Tamsyn Walker in the middle. “She applied a lot of pressure with her block,” he said.
