JC Sports Roundup, 11/9: Cabrillo volleyball captures 12th straight conference crown

The Cabrillo College women’s volleyball team continued its era of domination over the Coast Conference defeating the Hartnell College Panthers 23-25, 24-26, 25-14, 25-23, 15-10 Wednesday night in Salinas to claim their 12th consecutive conference championship.

Down two-nil early, the Seahawks (24-2, 11-0) remained poised and fought back to force a fifth and final game.

The Panthers (23-5, 7-3) gave Cabrillo its first real test in conference play in over a month, and it could not have come at a better time with the playoffs on the horizon.

The Seahawks will travel to Monterey Peninsula College on Tuesday for their final regular season game of the season at 6:30 p.m.



Hartnell 1, Cabrillo 0 – Cabrillo (2-12-4, 2-8-1) fell to the Hartnell College (12-2-3, 8-1-3) Tuesday in Salinas.

Cabrillo travels to San Bruno to face Skyline College (10-5-2, 7-3-2) tonight to close out the regular season.



West Valley 5, Cabrillo 0 – Cabrillo (1-15, 1-9) lost to conference rival West Valley College (11-4-5, 6-3-2) Tuesday to close out their home schedule.

The Seahawks travel to Evergreen Valley College tonight for a 7 p.m. game before they can officially close the book on the 2018 season.



Cabrillo 30, Merced 20 – The Seahawks (6-3, 3-2) stream rolled the Merced College Blue Devils (3-6,2-3) on Nov. 3 at Carl Connelly Stadium to ensure their first winning season since 2006. 

Under head coach Darren Arbet the program has seen a steady march back to relevance, with this season bringing at least as many wins as the previous four combined. 

Cole Davis, a sophomore running back, accumulated 166 yards from scrimmage on just seven touches, including a 64-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

Eliel Ehimar, a sophomore defensive lineman, registered two sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.



Cabrillo sweep first tournament of 2018-19 season – The Seahawks tipped off their preseason schedule by sweeping the fourth annual Cabrillo College Tip-Off in Aptos.

The Seahawks downed the Shasta College Knights on Nov. 3 in the first game 66-51, but looked to be focused on developing chemistry and shaking off the rust brought on by the offseason.

“Any time you play a game, you are just trying to grow a little bit,” said Cabrillo head coach Tony Marcopulos  “It’s a long process, but we’ll get there.”

Cabrillo got a little closer to “there” on Nov. 4 versus the Redwoods College Redwoods, crushing them 96-46 to tease what great heights the Seahawks may be capable of reaching as the season goes on.

With a stifling press defense and a high-tempo, high-scoring offense, the Seahawks presented a nightmare for the Redwoods.

“We want to make a name for ourselves,” said Trey Whitely, a sophomore guard who played at Harbor High. “We want to come for the state title against top level teams.”

Cabrillo hosts Las Positas College on Saturday at 5 p.m. before traveling to play in the Shasta Tournament on Nov. 16.
