HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL : Marshall, Palisades Girls Win City Championships

November 18, 1990

The Marshall High girls' volleyball team won what probably was the most important match in school history Saturday night at Cal State Dominguez Hills, defeating Sylmar, 15-12, 16-14, 15-1, to win the City 3-A Division championship.

It was the first City title for the top-seeded Barristers (8-5), who were eliminated by Birmingham in the semifinals last season.

In the 4-A final, Palisades completed a perfect season with a 15-3, 15-10, 7-15, 15-12 victory over El Camino Real.

Palisades (19-0) won its ninth consecutive championship. El Camino Real (14-1) was appearing in its first title match.

Marshall entered its final somewhat overconfident after beating a solid Van Nuys team in three games in the semifinals.

In the Southern Section girls' championships at Cerritos College, Corona del Mar defeated Mira Costa of Manhatten Beach in the 5-A Division, 15-12, 15-9, 15-8, to cap a perfect season.

Corona del Mar (18-0) lost to Mira Costa (20-2) in last year's final.

In 4-A, Notre Dame Academy of Los Angeles won its first sectional title, defeating Long Beach Jordan, 12-15, 15-3, 15-12, 5-15, 15-8.

Chrissy Boehle had 18 kills to lead third-seeded Notre Dame (14-2). DeAnn Machlan had 15 kills to lead Jordan (17-2).

In 3-A, La Habra won its second consecutive title with a 15-7, 15-1, 15-12 victory over El Modena.

In 2-A, Arroyo Grande defeated Long Beach St. Anthony, 7-15, 17-15, 15-4, 16-14. Cary Wendall had 24 kills and Denise Gabel added 11 to lead top-seeded Arroyo Grande (19-0) to its first title.

In 1-A, Jenny Johnson had 21 kills to lead West Los Angeles Windward (17-2) to a 15-11, 15-4, 15-6, victory over Desert.

In the Small Schools division, third-seeded Mammoth (18-1) won its first title with a 6-15, 15-2, 15-12, 15-12 victory over fourth-seeded Cate (17-3).
