Prep volleyball

East Nicolaus, Colusa host semifinals

Both the East Nicolaus High and Colusa girls volleyball teams will host Northern Section semifinals on Tuesday. 

East Nic, seeded No. 1 in division V, welcomes Modoc for the first time in over a decade with a trip to the section final on the line.

East Nic comes in 16-2 following a straight-set win over Mount Shasta. Modoc (11-8), meanwhile, won in four sets over Hamilton on Thursday. The No. 5 seeded Braves finished in a tie for second in the Shasta Cascade League with a 7-3 mark. 

The other half of the bracket features No. 2 Trinity hosting No. 3 Quincy on Tuesday. Both semifinals are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. 

Colusa will be playing for a return to Red Bluff High School for the section championships beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday at home against No. 3 Willows (16-13). 

The RedHawks (31-7), seeded No. 2, won the NSCIF D-V title two years ago. This year’s team might even be better under first-year coach Kim Roper. Roper’s squad moved past the 2019 team in wins earlier this week with its straight-set playoff win over Paradise. 

Up next is a Willows team that Colusa has already swept twice earlier this year. However, Willows does have a strong pedigree under head coach Carol Martin. Martin and the Honkers are 24-5 against Colusa since 2004. 

Willows finished in a tie for third with Pierce in the Sacramento Valley League this year behind Colusa and East Nicolaus, respectively. 

In the other semifinal, No. 4 Pierce (13-17) will travel to Redding to take on No. 1 University Prep (35-5) at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
