GLENDALE — While making the bus ride from La Crescenta to Laguna Beach on Friday, the members of the Crescenta Valley High boys’ volleyball team were eager.
When the Falcons arrived inside the Laguna Beach High gymnasium prior to their CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match, they might have been a bit awe struck.
Crescenta Valley saw its season conclude with a 25-9, 25-15, 25-21 loss to fifth-seeded Laguna Beach.
“We were fired up on the way down and we kind of thought we had a chance until we got there,” said Crescenta Valley Coach John Nelson, whose team went 12-9 and 8-4 in the Pacific League. “[Laguna Beach] is a pretty good team.
