The Whitney High boys volleyball team finished in second place in the Capital Valley Conference after wrapping up the regular season with a 3-0 victory over visiting Antelope last week.
With no danger of finishing less than No. 2 and no chance of catching undefeated Roseville, the Wildcats appeared relaxed and enjoying the competition. The Titans made the match interesting with sets of 25-23, 25-21 and 25-21; the ‘Cats remained in control most of the match.
With a 12-2 record in the CVC and 23-6 overall, Whitney secured the No. 2 seed in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division II Playoffs. They will draw a bye for the first round and then host either No. 7 seed Woodcreek or No. 10 Kennedy Thursday.
Roseville is the defending section champion and enters as the No. 1 seed. The Tigers and Wildcats played in the championship match last year and Whitney would relish a return match for this year.
