2010 season comes to a close at Cypress

Grossmont's remarkable 2010 season came to a close in the first round of the Southern California regional playoffs November 23rd.

Grossmont fell 0-3 against #1 seeded Cypress.

The 2010 season saw the Griffins win the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference championship with an 11-1 conference record.

The Griffins finished the season with a 17-6 overall record.

Griffins are 2010 PCAC champions

Playoff seeding announced
(11/21) Grossmont has been seeded 16th in the Southern California regional playoffs. The Griffins will travel to face #1 seed Cypress on Tuesday 11/23.

(11/18) The visiting Griffins defeated host Southwestern in three games Wednesday to claim the 2010 Pacific Coast Athletic Conference championship.

Had they slipped against Southwestern, Grossmont could have potentially shared the title with Mesa.

Grossmont finished the regular season 17-5 overall and 11-1 in conference play.

Since dropping their lone conference match at Imperial Valley College on October 27, the Griffins have not dropped a game. That equates to five consecutive straight set victories.

Griffins clinch a share of PCAC title

With their 3-0 (25-22, 27-25, 25-16) victory over visiting Palomar on Friday, Grossmont has earned at least a share of the 2010 Pacific Coast Athletic Conference championship.

With one regular season game remaining at Southwestern Wednesday 11/17, the Griffins will at least share the PCAC title.

There are a few scenarios that could play out on Wednesday, depending on the outcomes of the Mesa and Grossmont matches.

The simplest scenario is if Grossmont defeats Southwestern, making them outright conference camps. If the Griffins lose, things get a bit more convoluted.

- A Grossmont loss, coupled with a Mesa win results in co-champions.
- A Grossmont loss, coupled with a Mesa loss means the Griffins are outright champs.

Regardless of the outcome, coach Jamie Ivers' squad has come a long way since she took the reigns.

Her ladies were undefeated on on their home court while compiling a 10-1 conference record, 16-5 overall.

"I couldn't be prouder of these athletes," said Ivers.

"We suffered some early losses during the Mesa Tournament, but the used those losses as fuel not to lose again."

Since dropping three straight in that tournament September 17-18, the Griffins rattled off seven straight wins, and won 11 of their last twelve leading up to this weeks finale.

Several Griffins lead the conference in statistical categories.

Grossmont High's Krystal Robinson is the conference's kill leader. Setter Megan McManus leads the conference in hitting percentage (.425) overall, Chelsea Almairo is fifth at .332 and Middle Lindsey Spinning leads in conference hitting percentage (.534).

McManus is also third in the conference at 9 assists per set, with 652 total assists.

Libero Monik Richardson is tied with McManus at 8th in the conference with 71 aces this season.

Richardson leads the conference in both digs per set overall (7.25) and in conference play (9.56).

Robinson selected Athlete of the Week

(10/4) The Pacific Coast Athletic Conference has selected San Diego Mesa College soccer player Kate Newman and Grossmont volleyball player Krystal Robinson as Women's Athletes of the Week for the week that ended Sunday.

Robinson, a 6-foot sophomore outside hitter from Grossmont High School who transferred from Cal State East Bay, had 18 kills, six digs and one ace as the Griffins cooled off Imperial Valley, the conference's hottest team in the pre-season, 25-21, 25-15, 25-22 in the teams' PCAC opener.

Robinson currently is ninth in the state in kills and has had double-digit kill numbers in every match this year.

McManus is Athlete of the Week

Grossmont College volleyball player Megan McManus and San Diego City College volleyball player Ashley Whitmore have been selected by the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference as its Women's Athletes of the Week.

McManus, a sophomore out of Grossmont High School who was the starting setter last season at Colorado Christian University, recorded 60 assists this past week out of 112 total sets in the Griffins' two matches. She also had seven kills, only two errors and six aces for the week � and also is averaging 8.5 assists per set (game) and owns a .346 hitting percentage.Megan McManus
