Though the Gilroy High boys volleyball team fell short in its Tri-County Athletic League title defense, a 20-win season was rewarded Saturday.
The Mustangs (20-12) received the No. 8 seed into the Central Coast Section Division II bracket and will head to Palo Alto to take on No. 9 Eastside College Prep (18-12) on Tuesday night.
GHS placed runner-up in the TCAL Valley Division this season. This is the program’s fifth straight postseason appearance. Should the Mustangs prevail Tuesday they will face No. 1 seed Mt. Madonna, which swept GHS in a nonleague match earlier this season.
Tuesday’s match is slated for a 7 p.m. start.
Division II seeding: 1. Mt. Madonna, 2. Pacific Collegiate, 3. Sacred Heart Cathedral, 4. St. Ignatius, 5. Willow Glen, 6. Soquel, 7. Monterey, 8. Gilroy, 9. Eastside College Prep, 10. Prospect.
