WVB: Vaqueros awarded No. 1 seed

SBCC has been seeded No. 1 for the 18-team Southern Cal Regional women’s volleyball playoffs, which start on Saturday with a pair of play-in games.

The Vaqueros (23-3) received their first No. 1 seed ever after securing their fourth straight WSC North title on Wednesday with a 3-0 sweep over L.A. Mission. SBCC has won four straight matches and 14 of the last 15.

L.A. Pierce (26-1), which shared the WSC title with the Vaqueros at 11-1, was seeded second, followed by No. 3 El Camino and No. 4 Canyons.

The Vaqueros will host a first-round playoff game on Tuesday at 6 p.m. They’ll play the lowest remaining seed from Saturday’s two play-in games. No. 18 Chaffey is playing at No. 15 Riverside and No. 17 Pasadena travels to No. 16 Mt. San Antonio. The other remaining team will play at Pierce.

“I would have been fine being the 1 or 2 seed,” said SBCC coach Ed Gover. “I like the fact that we would be home for all three rounds of the Regional.”
