Monterey volleyball

Talk about a team that has flown under the radar.
At one point this year, Monterey wasn't even listed in the standings in one on-line publication.
Yet, the Toreadores have quietly gone out and gone undefeated in the Pacific Division at the half way point at 6-0, sweeping five opponents.
 Of course, no one will mistake the Pacific Division for being a power league. But Monterey is 14-5 overall this year. In other words, it's playing good volleyball.
 Sasha Krnic has hammered opponents on the outside this fall while Anastasia Radko has solidified the defense in the back row.
 While the two leaders of this unit are seniors, the core of contributors is not. It is a program on the rise and chasing its first league title since 2009.

Christopher-Alisal football

Friday's game
Christopher (5-1) at Alisal (1-6), 7:30 p.m.
 The Cougars are three points shy of being undefeated this year, having produced more points in the first half (108) than Alisal has the entire season (74).
 Quarterback Matt Adamkiewicz has thrown for 1,628 yards and 17 touchdowns for Christopher this year while its defense has intercepted 12 passes.
 Alisal has struggled to find the end zone this fall. Minus the 33 point uprising in its only win of the season, it has produced just 31 points this year.
 Part of the problem is the Trojans are struggling to run the ball. Unable to orchestrated any time consuming drives is keeping a young defense on the field for a long time.
