The Tologs of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy continued their summer league play in Pasadena, as the varsity volleyball team played a double-header at Pasadena Polytechnic. In their first game of the evening, the Tologs appeared to meet their match against the Cubs of Mayfield Senior High in Pasadena. The Mayfield frontline of Hanna Scherr, Susan Carlson and Mary Kate Roohan (along with outside hitter Rachel Aragon) kept Tolog star Katie Condon in check for most of the first match, as they prevented many of Condon's spikes from breaking through for scores.
