CITYWIDE — A number of Santa Monica-based teams continue their dreams of championships this week while the agony of defeat plagues others.
The girls’ volleyball squads at Santa Monica and Pacifica Christian have both qualified for the semifinals in their respective divisions. Samohi advanced by toppling Viewpoint on Saturday, setting up a Westside matchup at Windward on Tuesday in CIF-Southern Section Division 3AA. The game begins at 7 p.m.
Pacifica Christian will host St. Anthony, also on Tuesday. The CIF-SS Division 4A match will be held at Milken Community School at 7:30 p.m. Pacifica Christian is the No. 1 seed in the division.
The end of the line came for St. Monica girls’ volleyball last week against Shadow Hills in the second round of the Division 4AA playoffs.
The same could be said for Samohi boys’ water polo. The Vikings’ season ended on Saturday against Los Osos in the quarterfinals of the Division 4 playoffs.
