Girls Volleyball: Flintridge Sacred Heart Goes 3-4 at Durango Classic in Las Vegas; Tologs Underclassmen Get Valuable Experience in National Showcase

As FSHA coach Trent Tcheng explained, the Tologs gauge at the Durango Classic in Las Vegas wasn’t about wins and losses.
It was about the experience of going to go head to head with national powers, as well as letting their underclassmen get a taste of prep volleyball at the highest level.

It’s something FSHA expects will benefit the program over the final stretch of the 2018 regular season, especially in Mission League play and the CIF-SS playoffs.

FSHA went 3-4 this weekend in Sin City.

Peyton DeJardin, a freshman standout, finished the weekend with 57 kills, and Danielle Nathan-Thomas added 45 kills for the Tologs.

Senior Megan Lund contributed 40 kills.

Emmie Barnard added 121 assists and Ryan Dubb had 38 digs.

The Tologs will host Marlborough on Tuesday at 6 as Mission League play resumes.

Quotable:

FSHA coach Trent Tcheng: “This is the best tournament in country and the mythical national champion will be crowned at this tournament. Playing in this tournament is all about getting experience for the second half of the season. Most of our underclassmen got to experience a grueling two-day tournament that will wear you out physically, emotionally and mentally. This tournament isn’t about your starters, but how deep your bench is. Our entire team got valuable experience and will help us moving forward in league and the rest of our season.”

Record: FSHA (12-6)
