Oakmont High School’s volleyball team bounced back from a loss to perennial power Christian Brothers with a 3-0 sweep of Del Campo in a Capital Valley Conference match Thursday night at Oakmont.

Junior middle blocker Maura Uebner led the Vikings (16-10, 2-1 CVC) with seven kills and four blocks in the 25-10, 25-8, 25-9 victory. Junior outside hitter Emily Larson also had seven kills.

Junior setter Brennah Gladwill had 26 assists and served nine of Oakmont’s 14 aces, and senior libero Sophi Lozano had 14 digs.

Nevada Union 3, Roseville 0 — Jennifer Simon led the Tigers (11-14, 1-2 SFL) with eight kills and Kelsey Starr had five in a 25-17, 25-20, 25-19 loss to the Miners in Grass Valley. Kali Lauhon continued her strong play with 26 assists, five digs, four blocks and an ace. Corinne Smith entered in the third game and provided a lift with two kills.

“It seems to be our pattern that we have lapses where we give away a lot of points in a row that hurt us,” Tigers coach Ron Grove said in an e-mail. “We do have some sparks of life and can play well.”

Junior Erin Patterson had 13 digs and seven aces, junior Emily Flood had 12 kills and five aces, and senior Heather Frank had 33 assists and three aces among her 16 service points. Sophomore HaeLeigh Sinerius had 17 digs.
