El Camino gave the appearance they came to Whitney High for a clinic in boys volleyball and the Wildcats didn’t disappoint Tuesday night.

The Eagles best set was the third in which they scored 16 points; an even dozen was all they could muster in the first two games.

The Wildcats served up seven aces in the first set alone with seven different players getting kills.

Whitney head coach Kristen Gideon-Parker said she wasn’t sure what to expect judging from El Camino’s record. Whatever concern the Eagles might have given her in the beginning quickly evaporated.

Gideon-Parker was able to use her bench throughout the match and was pleased her club didn’t play down to El Camino’s game.

The win improved the ‘Cats to 4-0 in the Capital Athletic League and 9-1 overall.

El Camino fell to 2-2 and is 7-4 overall.


Eagles             12  12  16 – 0

Wildcats         25  25  25 – 3
