The East Union High Lancers rode the multi-pronged attack of Augustin Castaneda to a 25-21, 25-20, 13-25, 25-16 Valley Oak League boys’ volleyball win over the Kimball High Jaguars of Tracy Monday at Dalben Center.

Castaneda had 10 kills, seven digs and three aces to pace the East Union (5-2 VOL, 6-6 overall). Parmbir Khattra chipped in with 33 assists, Grant Silva had six kills and seven blocks and Jonathan Castaneda had nine digs.

“We came out a little flat, but they decided they wanted to come together,” Lancers coach Chelsea Herrera said. “After the fourth game we finished strong and were able to finish the match.”

Manteca 3, Ripon 0

The Buffaloes (14-0) took advantage of a bye in their VOL schedule to pick up a 25-21, 25-10, 25-14 nonleague win at Winter Gym. 

“It was nice because everyone contributed,” Manteca coach Kevin Bolding said. “This was supposed to be a bye so we filled it playing Ripon. 

“This was much better than practicing and everyone got significant time.” 

Kylan Chandler and Cameron Reis (seven digs) had six kills each with Kyle Reis (five digs) and Jonathan Borres (16 assists, four aces) getting five kills each. Joseph Borres added 14 digs. 

The Indians (4-10) were led by Trent Hawes with 12 digs and Michael Winters with 11. Benson Pali and Branden States had four kills each with Dylan Sexton dishing out 10 assists.

“We played hard,” Ripon coach Rod Wright said. “We had a good first game and were competitive and then Manteca had a little more than us.

“We had fun and the goal is to get better and every game we get a little bit better.”
