The Pitman Pride Volleyball team (44-2) lost in Division I CIF State Volleyball Championship to the Redondo Union Seahawks (38-2) at Santiago Canyon College in Orange (23-25, 18-25, 21-25).

In the first set the Pride jumped out to a 17-14 lead but the Seahawks scored six straight points, leading to a 25-23 Pride loss. In the second set, the Pride never led but kept the set close thanks to consecutive kills from senior Madison King.

In the final set the Pride fell 21-25, but battled from a five point deficit, 3-8. The Pride mustered life after 3 kills and a block from senior Lindsey Vander Weide to tie the match 10-10. Unfortunately the Seahawks outscored the Pride 14-11 from that point on.

Vander Weide finished with 11 kills and 3 blocks. Freshman Whitney Barnes had a fine game with 5 kills and 2 blocks.

Despite the loss, it was a historic season for the Pride, who finished won the Central California Conference Championship, the Sac-Joaquin Section Championship and the CIF NorCal Championship.

The Pride were a team of fierce determination, led by Head Coach Kristen Pontes-Christian’s intensity — which carried over to her players.

“When you win 44 games you know how to win, they have no fear and play with intensity,” Time Warner Cable Community Television Commentator Tim Jensen complimented the Pride.

It was a great season for the Pride. Congrats on making it to the CIF State Volleyball Championship game.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
