On Saturday, May 19, the Boys' Volleyball team captured the CIF Los Angeles Division 1 Championship! We played against Bell High School. Despite having a 2-0 lead over the Eagles, the Spartans had to defend against a well-balanced team to win the match in five sets. Led by all tournament MVP Fabian Galindo, the Spartans were defensively sound with All Tournament selections Joseph Ramos and Ricky Jamie, along with Angel Guevarra and Ruben Munoz. Offensively, they featured Ubaldo Aguilera, Aaron Reyes, Josh Giron, and Ezequiel Alvarez. This is the first ever Boys' Volleyball Championship in Sylmar High School history, and the first ever for Coach Mashhoud, as well!

It is certainly not immutable, since it is always subject to revisions and modifications, but it will serve as a guide as you navigate through your planning sessions.
