From Staff Reports:

La Salle looked every bit the No. 2 seed in the first round of the CIF-SS Division 4 playoffs.

The Lancers made quick work of visiting Rio Hondo Prep on Tuesday evening.

La Salle earned a 25-17, 25-13 and 25-14 victory, which is their seventh consecutive match victory dating back to the regular season.

CJ Rettig led La Salle with 10 kills, 6 digs and an ace.

Will Dalgarn added 8 kills and 6 digs.

Jaron Surtees had five kills and Travis Beringer finished with 9 digs and 2 aces.

La Salle will meet up with Laguna Blanca on Thursday night at 6 in the second round of the D-4 playoffs.

The Owls (8-8) swept Nipomo in their first-round match up Tuesday.

Quotable:

La Salle senior Anton Aritz: “Our team played as a whole, which largely determines our success. Greatness is usually only for the chosen few or the stars of a team, but La Salle’s team has an entire team of options. We came out swinging and put the ball away, setting a good vibe for the upcoming playoff games. All our hitters and passers worked together like a machine and got the job done. We are simply grateful for the opportunity to go far this year.”

La Salle senior Tommy Nigero: “I’m really proud of how our team came out on the court and played today. We keep getting stronger as the season continues. The energy that we provide each other is what drives us and what makes this team special. I’m humbled to play with a group of guys that are so supportive of each other. I know that going into our next playoff game, if we play with the same energy and focus, we will be able to dominate our competition.”

La Salle junior Brandon King: “Tonight’s game was a clear representation of how well we play together as a team. We built our energy and gained momentum throughout the sets and finished with a great start to the playoffs. We are going to continue to fight and play to the best of our ability in order to have an overall memorable and outstanding rest of the season. Rio Hondo played great as well, and we look forward to further competition as we continue our journey as a team.”

Records: Rio Hondo Prep (9-16); La Salle (22-6)
