Ripon High’s volleyball team couldn’t tame the Tigers twice.

The 11th-seeded Indians at least went down swinging Tuesday at No. 6 Los Banos, which won the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV postseason opener in a competitive sweep, 25-22, 25-21, 26-24. It was a rematch of their Sept. 19 nonleague contest won by Ripon in five games. The Tigers went on to earn the Western Athletic Conference title, while Ripon placed third in the Trans-Valley League.

Seniors Danny Arteaga (27 digs), Kristen Carhart (5 blocks), Mel Wilkerson (2 aces) and Paige Goodger played their final match for Ripon. Kylie Stevens led the attack with 17 kills, and Jourdy Richter set 25 assists.

Los Banos travels to Grass Valley on Thursday to face No. 3 Bear River in the quarterfinals.
