, Westlake swept through the Marmonte League undefeated. But on an individual basis, Agoura's Brooke Borisoff and Simi Valley's doubles team of Rebecca Hunau and Margo O'Donnell are the ones with the titles.

Borisoff kept her perfect record intact by defeating Westlake's Nina Yaftali 6-2, 6-2 in the singles final. Thursday, the sophomore didn't lose a game as she helped lead Agoura to a 15-3 win over Paso Robles Robles is a common surname in the Spanish language meaning oaks, and may refer to:

Hunau and O'Donnell beat fellow Pioneers Mindy Gondrez and Stella Chu to win the Marmonte doubles championship for the second year in a row.

Hunau and Chu, who are usually partners, were reunited Thursday for the first round of the Division I team playoffs. The pair improved to 60-0 as the Pioneers won eight of nine doubles sets in an 11-7 win over Arcadia.

Westlake (19-0) remains unbeaten in team play after a 16-2 win against Paso Robles in Thursday's opening round of the Division III playoffs.

Volleyball: Nothing like putting the pressure on the new kid. Freshman Katie Melody brought Westlake back from a 14-11 deficit in game four of Thursday's game against West Torrance with five consecutive service points. The 16-14 win clinched a first-round victory for the host Warriors in the Division II-AA playoffs.

Happy to have her: Crystal Roberts returned to the Grace Brethren volleyball team this season after a year off. It was just her second year playing the sport, but she had a major impact on the Lancers' success.

The senior broke Michelle Mak's school record for kills in a game when she pounded 21 last week against Ribet Academy.

``It really showed her how much I care about her and how far I'll go,'' Skinner said. ``We just wanted to spend more time together before she graduates. She's a really neat kid, I'll miss her.''

Roberts led the Lancers with 10 kills and six digs in a three-game win against Boron boron (bōr`ŏn) [New Gr. from borax], chemical element; symbol B; at. no. 5; at. wt. 10.81; m.p. about 2,300°C;; sublimation point about 2,550°C;; sp. gr. 2.3 at 25°C;; valence +3.  in the opening round of the playoffs Tuesday. Grace Brethren was eliminated Thursday with a four-game loss to Villanova.

Finally healthy: For the first time in four years, the La Reina volleyball team isn't coping with an injury to a key player entering the playoffs.

``At least this way we'll be a 100 percent,'' coach Don Hyatt said. ``If you get beat, you get beat, but at least you know you had your best team out there.''

The Regents (19-0) were the best team Thursday against Morro Bay. La Reina used 13 kills from Jennifer Ryan and a combined 10 aces to take the Division IV-AA opener in three games.
