COLTON — The Wagner volleyball team defeated Tri-Valley in three sets to win the Region 5A title Tuesday in Colton.

Cuka had 13 kills, Brecke had nine kills and 16 digs, Cimpl had nine kills and Medicine Horn had seven kills.
“We came out strong right away, but we were a little tense on serve-receive,” Wagner coach Amy Tyler said. “We trailed much of the second game, but we found a way around their blockers and pulled it out.”
Jessa Doom had 40 assists and 10 digs, while Talia Peters had 11 digs.
“Jessa does a really good job of reading the defense,” Tyler said. “She also plays really good defense, and that’s always helpful from your setter.”
