Redondo is probably the No. 1 team in the nation. The Sea Hawks haven’t lost a single match or even a single set when they were at full strength. They own a win over Mater Dei when they played without standout setter Kami Miner, who was in Egypt playing for the USA Youth national national team.

Mater Dei has Long Beach State-bound senior Mia Tuaniga. It will be interesting to see how the Sea Hawks respond if Mater Dei can win a set early in the match.
Palisades has lost twice to Eagle Rock, which is seeking its first upper division championship. Palisades is playing its final match under coach Carlos Gray, who is leaving to coach at Westlake. The Dolphins will be motivated to send out Gray with a championship.
