Game Recap

The Carlmont girls volleyball team beat Granite Bay 25-20, 25-21, 25-15 Tuesday night in Belmont in the CIF Division II NorCal semifinals. The Scots improve to 33-4, while the Grizzlies end their season at 30-13. Carlmont will host NorCal championship match Saturday night at 6:00 against Notre Dame-Belmont or Sacred Heart Prep. Carlmont has wins over both of those schools this season; in fact, the Scots are 15-0 this year against teams that advanced to the CCS semifinals (in any division). That record includes wins over CCS Open champion Mitty, CCS D-2 champion Presentation, and CCS D-4 champion Notre Dame-Belmont.

Carlmont senior Maya McClellan hit .375 with 16 kills, nine digs and an ace; and her sophomore sister Morgan McClellan hit .368 with 10 kills, eight digs and five aces. Senior Sophie Srivastava had 30 assists, eight digs, three blocks and a kill; and senior Tai Mei Chang had 18 digs and an ace. Sophomore Alisha Mitha added five kills; senior Emma Vanoncini had four kills and three blocks; and junior Elizabeth Prozell hit .500 with two kills and three blocks. Freshmen Jules Tan and Leah McMillen chipped in with four digs each.

“It’s very exciting to be in the NorCal final for the first time ever,” said Carlmont Coach Chris Crader. “Especially after Carlmont had never won a NorCal game in any sport before this season. I’m extremely proud of the girls for a great performance tonight, and we’re all fired up for what comes next.”

Carlmont is competing in the NorCal playoffs for the second time in the last three years, and third time overall, but had never won a NorCals match prior to this year (in any sport). The Scots won their third-ever CCS title by beating defending champion Los Gatos in four sets on Nov. 11. Carlmont also won CCS in 1975 and 2005, and lost in the finals in 2015. This was Carlmont’s ninth consecutive CCS appearance, and the 16th in 17 years.

While Carlmont will graduate five stellar seniors after this season, the program returns 14 players who have made varsity appearances this year. The Scots JV (20-11, 10-4) and Freshman teams (17-7, 8-4) also had very good seasons, so the program is set up to continue their success in future years. After posting a very respectable 83-53 (.659) record in Coach Chris Crader’s first four years at the helm, Carlmont has now gone 89-22 (.802) over the past three seasons. Last year’s 29-8 team set records for most wins and fewest losses in school history, until this year’s team improved upon both marks.

Carlmont returns to action Saturday at 6:00 pm in the NorCal Championship match.

Game Recap

The Carlmont girls volleyball team beat Lowell of San Francisco 25-20, 25-21, 24-26, 22-25, 15-8 Saturday night in Belmont in the CIF Division II NorCal quarterfinals. The Scots improve to 32-4, while the Cardinals end their season at 29-10. Carlmont will host Granite Bay Tuesday night at 7:00 in a NorCal semifinal.

Carlmont’s senior class keyed the victory for the Scots. Maya McClellan had 24 kills, 13 digs, two block and three aces; Emma Vanoncini hit .917 with a career-high 11 kills and five blocks; Sophie Srivastava had 58 assists, 18 digs, five blocks, three kills and an ace; Tai Mei Chang had 22 digs and an ace; and Heather Chao hit .375 with seven kills and six digs. Sophomore Morgan McClellan added nine kills, 12 digs and three aces; and junior Elizabeth Prozell hit .400 with four kills and three blocks. Sophomore Alisha Mitha added eight kills, and freshman Jules Tan had five digs. Maya McClellan had five kills and two aces in the fifth set as the Scots jumped out to leads of 5-1 and 10-4 before closing things out.

“Lowell did a lot of things that really put pressure on us, and we struggled to answer for much of the match. But we were able to regroup and play a really solid fifth set. We’re excited to be moving on,” said Carlmont Coach Chris Crader.

Carlmont is competing in the NorCal playoffs for the third time, and for the second time in three years. The Scots won their third-ever CCS title by beating defending champion Los Gatos in four sets on Saturday. Carlmont also won CCS in 1975 and 2005, and lost in the finals in 2015 (they lost first-round NorCal matches in their only two prior appearances, in 2005 and 2015). This was Carlmont’s ninth consecutive CCS appearance, and the 16th in 17 years.

While Carlmont will graduate five stellar seniors after this season, the team returns nine season-long varsity players, plus five other players who have made varsity appearances this year. The Scots JV (20-11, 10-4) and Freshman teams (17-7, 8-4) also had very good seasons, so the program is set up to continue their success in future years. After posting a very respectable 83-53 (.659) record in Coach Chris Crader’s first four years at the helm, Carlmont has now gone 88-22 (.800) over the past three seasons, for an average record of about 29-7 per season. Last year’s 29-8 team set records for most wins and fewest losses in school history, until this year’s 32-4 team has done even better.

Carlmont returns to action Tuesday at 6:00 pm in the NorCal semifinals, hosting Granite Bay.

Game Recap

The Carlmont girls volleyball team beat Analy of Sebastopol 25-9, 25-12, 25-22 Wednesday night in Belmont to open the CIF Division II NorCal playoffs. This is Carlmont’s first-ever win in the NorCal tournament after first-round losses in 2005 and 2015. The Scots improve to 31-4, while the Tiger end their season at 21-9. Carlmont will host Lowell-S.F. Saturday night at 6:00 in a NorCal quarterfinal.

Carlmont senior Sophie Srivastava guided the Scots to the win. She hit .833 with five kills, 22 assists, six digs and two blocks. Seniors Maya McClellan and Emma Vanoncini and junior Clara Vltavsky were Srivastava’s favorite setting targets, as each had seven kills. McClellan hit .600 with three digs, Vanoncini hit .545 with three blocks, and Vltavsky hit .267 and added a lot of passion in addition to her power at the net. Junior Elizabeth Prozell hit .600 with three kills and five blocks, senior Tai Mei Chang added seven digs and two aces, and junior Annika Nambiar also had seven digs.

“It was a really nice team win tonight, which was a great way to get our school’s first-ever NorCals victory,” said Carlmont Coach Chris Crader. “We had an awesome crowd, played really well, and I’m really looking forward to what comes next!”

Carlmont is competing in the NorCal playoffs for the third time, and for the second time in three years. The Scots won their third-ever CCS title by beating defending champion Los Gatos in four sets on Saturday. Carlmont also won CCS in 1975 and 2005, and lost in the finals in 2015 (they lost first-round NorCal matches in their only two prior appearances, in 2005 and 2015). This was Carlmont’s ninth consecutive CCS appearance, and the 16th in 17 years.

While Carlmont will graduate five stellar seniors after this season, the team returns nine season-long varsity players, plus five other players who have made varsity appearances this year. The Scots JV (20-11, 10-4) and Freshman teams (17-7, 8-4) also had very good seasons, so the program is set up to continue their success in future years. After posting a very respectable 83-53 (.659) record in Coach Chris Crader’s first four years at the helm, Carlmont has now gone 87-22 (.798) over the past three seasons, for an average record of about 29-7 per season. Last year’s 29-8 team set records for most wins and fewest losses in school history, until this year’s 31-4 team has done even better.

Carlmont returns to action Saturday at 6:00 pm in the NorCal quarterfinals against Lowell-San Francisco.

Carlmont 42 – Mills 0

Release the hounds. A trio of Carlmont (4-1, 8-2) running backs scored six times in the Scots’ 42-0 shutout victory over the Mills Mustangs (3-7, 1-4) in the regular season finale for both schools. Scot senior wide receiver Anthony Arteaga outran the Viking defense for a 41 yard 1st quarter score. He added a second score in the 2nd quarter with a 4 yard touchdown reception from freshman quarterback Siupeli Netane. But it was three touchdowns tallied in the 3rd quarter by Scot senior running back Demarii Blanks that put the game out of reach for Mills. The game was not without some drama. The Vikings tried to cut the Scots’ 14-0 lead in half as Mills senior running back Sione Langi attempted to power his way into the Scot end zone from the 2 yard line, but he was stopped at the 1 yard line as the first half ended. Then, midway through the 3rd quarter, Langi switched from his running back position to QB. He engineered a drive that led to first and goal on the Carlmont 5 yard line. This was Mills’ chance to get back into the game. However, on fourth and goal from the 2 yard line, Langi plunged into the middle of the line, and while everyone was watching the Mills players try to push the scrum over the goal line, the ball popped loose and fell untouched into the end zone. Demarii Blanks alertly grabbed the ball and returned it 100 yards for a touchdown. Scot sophomore running back Jonaven Kuhn closed out the game’s scoring with a 4th quarter 83 yard touchdown dash that left several Viking defenders in his wake. While the scoring runs of Arteaga, Blanks, and Kuhn electrified the Carlmont faithful, freshman Siupeli Netane stepping up to lead the Scot offense following last week’s injury to starting quarterback Henry Reich, and junior placekicker Samantha Blucher taking over Reich’s kickoff and PAT duties were also key elements to Carlmont’s victory.

Scoring summary:
CHS Anthony Arteaga 41 run (Samantha Blucher kick)
CHS Anthony Arteaga 4 pass from Siupeli Netane (Samantha Blucher kick)
CHS Demarii Blanks 2 run (Samantha Blucher kick)
CHS Demarii Blanks 100 fumble return (Samantha Blucher kick)

Game Recap

The Carlmont girls volleyball team won the CCS Division I championship Saturday, beating Los Gatos 25-16, 23-25, 25-18, 25-16 at Palo Alto High School. The Scots won their third-ever CCS Championship in girls volleyball, following titles in 1975 and 2005. Carlmont is now 30-4 to set school records for most victories and fewest losses in a season, breaking marks established by last year’s 29-8 squad. The Wildcats fall to 22-12. Both teams are expected to advance into the NorCal playoffs, with opening-round matches Wednesday night.

Carlmont senior Maya McClellan hit .289 with 20 kills, 11 digs, six aces and a block to lead the way, as she’s done so often over the last three years. Senior Sophie Srivastava hit .400 with three kills, 42 assists, 13 digs, two blocks and an ace; and sophomore Morgan McClellan hit .467 with 15 kills, five digs, three aces and two blocks. Sophomore Alisha Mitha hit .400 with nine kills, seven blocks and a dig; senior Emma Vanoncini had two kills and seven blocks; and junior Elizabeth Prozell added two kills and four blocks. Senior Tai Mei Chang added 11 digs; junior Katie Wong had 12 digs, and freshman Leah McMillen – who played on the JV squad all year until the playoffs began – had four aces and two digs.

“I’m extremely proud of all the girls on our team, and really happy for them,” said Carlmont Coach Chris Crader. “Winning CCS is really really hard, and this is a great accomplishment for our team. This win is for all the girls who have made our team better this year, and for all the other girls who have come before them, who have helped elevate our program to reach this level. It’s definitely another great memory in a season full of great memories; hopefully we can make a few more.”

Carlmont is competing in the CCS playoffs for the ninth consecutive season, and for the 16th time in 17 years. The Scots reached the CCS finals for the fourth time, and played in the finals for the second in the last three years. The Scots also earned their third trip to NorCals in school history; Carlmont is 0-2 in their prior two appearances. The Scots won the initial CCS championship in 1975, before there was a NorCal tournament. Carlmont also advanced to NorCals in 2005, as the CCS champion; and in 2015, as CCS runners-up.

While Carlmont will graduate five stellar seniors after this season, the team returns nine season-long varsity players, plus five other players who have made varsity appearances this year. The Scots JV (20-11, 10-4) and Freshman teams (17-7, 8-4) also had very good seasons, so the program is set up to continue their success in future years. After posting a very respectable 83-53 (.659) record in Coach Chris Crader’s first four years at the helm, Carlmont has now gone 86-22 (.796) over the past three seasons, for an average record of about 29-7 per season. Last year’s 29-8 team set records for most wins and fewest losses in school history, until this year’s 30-4 team has done even better.

Carlmont returns to action Wednesday at 7:00 pm in the NorCal playoffs round of 16. The brackets will be released sometime on Sunday.

Game Recap

The Carlmont girls volleyball team beat Salinas 25-14, 24-26, 25-12, 25-16 in a CCS Division-I semifinal match at Los Gatos High School Wednesday. The Scots improve to 29-4 and equal the school record for victories, set by last year’s 29-8 squad. The Cowboys end their season at 24-9. Carlmont faces Los Gatos in the CCS Championship match Saturday at Palo Alto High School

Carlmont senior Maya McClellan had 15 kills, 15 digs, a block and an ace; classmate Sophie Srivastava hit .500 with five kills to go along with 30 assists, 17 digs, two aces and three blocks; and sophomore Morgan McClellan added nine kills, 10 digs, two aces and a block. But the Scots also needed big performances from two of their less-heralded players to get past the Cowboys. Junior Katie Wong had a career-high 13 digs, three aces, and totally changed the complexion of the match from the service line in set three, and junior Elizabeth Prozell had five kills and six blocks, and was a big presence at the net all night for the Scots. Senior Tai Mei Chang added 11 digs and an ace; junior Alisha Mitha had five kills, three digs and two blocks; and senior Emma Vanoncini put away match point to send Carlmont to the CCS finals.

Carlmont started the match with a 10-1 spurt and controlled the first game. Things seemed in hand when the Scots led 24-18 in the second, but Salinas fought back to score eight unanswered points and level the contest at one set apiece. With momentum on the Cowboys side at 11-all in the third set, Carlmont called a time out. Carlmont received serve and scored a point to end Salinas’s run, and then Wong served up 12 more points to turn the tie into a 24-11 advantage for Carlmont. From there, Maya McClellan took over, registering five kills on her last eight attempts to close out the fourth set.

Carlmont is competing in the CCS playoffs for the ninth consecutive season, and for the 16th time in 17 years. The Scots have advanced to their third-ever CCS Championship match, and their second final in three years. The win also should secure the third trip to NorCals in school history; Carlmont is 0-2 in their prior two appearances. The Scots won the initial CCS championship in 1975, in a round-robin format with no true title match, before there was a NorCal tournament. Carlmont also advanced to NorCals in 2005, as the CCS champion; and in 2015, as CCS runners-up.

The Scots beat Salinas 25-19, 25-17, 25-22 in a non-league match on Sept. 7. But the two teams’ history goes back much longer than that. This is the fourth time in five years that the teams have met in the CCS playoffs, with the last three meetings coming in the quarterfinal round: #6 Carlmont lost 15-13 in the fifth set at #3 Salinas in 2013; the 7th-seeded Scots turned the tables a year later, shocking the #2 Cowboys 25-23, 25-23, 25-23; and #3 Carlmont ousted #6 Salinas in four sets last year. The head coaches are connected as well: first-year Salinas Coach Chloe Goldman played club volleyball for Carlmont Coach Chris Crader when she was a sophomore at Salinas High. Their City Beach 16 Black team won a silver medal at the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships, and Goldman was selected to the all-tournament team as an outside hitter. Goldman went on to an All-America career as a libero at the University of Tennessee before returning to her alma mater as a coach.

While Carlmont will graduate five stellar seniors after this season, the team returns nine season-long varsity players, plus five other players who have made varsity appearances this year. The Scots JV (20-11, 10-4) and Freshman teams (17-7, 8-4) also had very good seasons, so the Scots are set up to continue their success in future years. After posting a very respectable 83-53 (.659) record in Coach Chris Crader’s first four years at the helm, Carlmont has now gone 85-22 (.794) over the past three seasons, for an average record of about 28-7 per season. Last year’s 29-8 team set school records for most wins and fewest losses, and this year’s 29-4 team is on pace to do even better.

Carlmont returns to action Saturday in the CCS Division-I championship match at Palo Alto HS, facing Los Gatos in a rematch of last year’s semifinal, won by Los Gatos. Match times will be announced Thursday.
