Saugus swept Canyon by scores of 25-16, 25-14 and 25-17 on Tuesday to earn its first league win of the year.

Ashley Guthrie has 28 assists, 12 digs and four blocks to lead the Centurions, who improve to 9-9 overall and 1-3 in league play. Hannah Nua led the Centurions with 14 kills.

“We are competing in every match,” said Saugus head coach Zach Ambrose after the Centurions’ first league win.
Saugus will next play Golden Valley on Thursday at Golden Valley and Canyon (9-8-1, 1-3) will play Hart at Canyon.

West Ranch 3, Golden Valley 0

Alexis Clewis had 11 kills to lead the West Ranch girls volleyball to a relatively stress-free 3-0 win by scores of 25-19, 25-22 and 25-11 as West Ranch moves into a tie with Hart for second place in the Foothill League.

West Ranch (11-4 overall, 3-1 Foothill) will have a chance catch up on Thursday when it faces league undefeated Valencia at Valencia High.

The key, said West Ranch head coach Gerrit Maxwell, will be finding ways to finish close games, which the team has struggled with this season.

Outside of that, it will just be a matter of limiting Valencia’s talented lineup.

“They serve tough, they attack the ball well,” Maxwell said of Valencia. “I think our biggest weapon against them is going to be at the service line and can we control them at the net?”

In the meantime, West Ranch was taking care of business Tuesday against league 0-4 Golden Valley thanks to 23 assists by Carly Carapella, nine digs by Haley Lind and three aces from Brooke Garelick.

SCCS 3, Trinity 0

Santa Clarita Christian defeated Trinity in a sweep by scores of 25-17, 25-16 and 25-11.

Colette Blake led the Cardinals with seven aces and 13 assists. Christina Keoshian had 11 kills and four blocks for SCCS (6-5 overall, 2-1 Heritage League).

“We have strong servers and they were consistent with the serve,” said SCCS head coach Darcy Brown.

Lizzie McAdams led the Trinity (2-4, 0-2) with four kills and four assists. The Cardinals are now 4-0 all time against Trinity.
