Junior Varsity shaken up, but Leone and Tafuna are still on top in girls Volleyball
Things remain the same in the American Samoa High School Athletic Association (ASHSAA) girls volleyball Varsity division as the the Leone Lions and Tafuna Warriors are still on top with unblemished records waiting to meet one another with the regular season coming to a close.
However, the Junior Varsity division has the once unbeaten Nu’uuli Voc-Tech Wildcats losing three out of their last four games, changing the outlook at the end of the tunnel for some teams in the division.
In the latest action this past Wednesday, the Warriors Varsity was able to down the Wildcats 25-14 and 25-10, while the Warriors JV were defeated in three sets, ending the Wildcats three game losing streak.
The game between the Varsity teams of the Samoana Sharks and South Pacific Academy Dolphins and the Junior Varsity teams of the Sharks and Kanana Fou Stallions that were scheduled for Wednesday had to be postponed due the Dolphins home court not being up to par in the rainy weather.
The Faga’itua Vikings Varsity team remains within the third spot with only two losses, while the Sharks are right behind them and with less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, both of these teams have definitely stepped up their play.
The Fa’asao Cougars continue to be just out of reach of the top four with things winding down. The Stallions, Wildcats and Dolphins appear to be out of contention at this time for the playoffs by the way the top teams have been playing.
In the Junior Varsity Division, it is now anyone’s game due to the ‘slip’ and ‘recovery’ the Wildcats have made recently which stirred up the standings. The only two teams in the standings that appear to be out of the race at this time are the Cougars and Lions.
Today’s games will have the Lions visiting the Stallions, while the Vikings will be taking a trip to the home of the Cougars of Fa’asao. Each game has a starting time of 4:30 p.m.
