The Saddleback Valley Christian boys beach volleyball team is proving to be a tough out.
The team went undefeated in the Interscholastic Beach Volleyball League’s regular season, which ended Oct. 3, and won their first postseason match against Palos Verdes in the opening round of the playoffs on Oct. 7.
The Warriors team won the IBVL’s Orange County High School Beach League’s Orange division with a perfect 13-0 record. Saddleback Valley Christian had to navigate through a league that consisted of San Clemente, Dana Hills and Crean Lutheran.
The Warriors entered the playoffs as the No. 2 overall seed and swept Palos Verdes in three sets. The Warrior duos of Noah Dyer and Spencer Alden, Jacob Pelletier and Jon Minsberg and Trevor O’Reilly and George Dyer all won their matches in two games.
Saddleback Valley Christian will face either Arroyo Grande or Newbury Park in the second round on Oct. 10. The result of the Arroyo Grande-Newbury Park match was unavailable at press time.
