With a 10-1 Coast Valley League (CVL) record coming into this week, the Coast Union volleyball team is heading to the CIF playoffs, but Head Coach Pam Kenyon understands that her team will be a No. 2 seed.
The Lady Broncos finished the season tied with North County Christian atop the CVL standings, but because the Crusaders beat Coast Union in their second head-to-head encounter, they earned the league’s No. 1 playoff seed via a tiebreaker.
Kenyon said the loss to North County Christian was “a hard loss,” but that “from a coaching perspective it has rejuvenated their energy, our practices have been really good, so I’m looking forward to CIF” playoffs.
“Everybody on the team is healthy,” she reported Monday, Nov. 3. “They have a new focus and they’re ready to go.”
Kenyon, who has successfully battled colon cancer over the past year, continues to receive an infusion of cancer-fighting drugs once every two weeks. “It’s a maintenance program that I will be on for the foreseeable future,” she said.
The Lady Broncos won’t know their opponents in the first round of the CIF playoffs until Sunday, when brackets are announced, athletic director Bill Clough said.
They will likely play their first-round match Tuesday or Wednesday.
