Oakmont 8, Casa Roble 1 — The Vikings (3-2 overall) opened Capital Valley Conference play with a big victory over the Rams.


Bear River 3, Roseville 0 — Leslie Pease had a team-high 10 kills, Jennifer Simon had eight kills and a team-leading five blocks, and passing specialist Amanda Susbilla had 10 digs for the Tigers in their 25-22, 25-17, 25-21 loss at Bear River. Kirsten Merlino had five kills for Roseville.

We need to generate more offense and more kills, especially on our first ball we get,” coach Ron Grove said. “We have spurts where we lose bunches of points and then have to dig out of the hole, and it becomes a big challenge.”
