The 2018 boys volleyball season got a jump-start March 2-3 with the annual National City Host Lions tournament hosted by Sweetwater High School. Thirty-four teams participated this year, including 10 South County programs.

Olympian advanced to the Gold tier final, placing runner-up to San Pasqual, while San Ysidro advanced to the Bronze tier final, placing runner-up to O’Farrell.

Olympian defeated Montgomery in the Gold tier semifinals while Mira Mesa defeated Castle Park in the Silver tier semifinals.

Division champions included San Pasqual (Gold tier), Coronado (Silver tier) and O’Farrell (Bronze tier).

San Pasqual finished 7-0 in the two-day tournament.

“It was a great tournament filled with teams from all over San Diego,” San Pasqual coach Todd Goodwin said. “I’m really proud of the heart and skill my team played with this weekend. We look forward to defending the title next year.”

All-tournament trophies were presented to San Pasqual’s Trevor Rowdan and Roman Sandoval as well as Olympian seniors Joshua Castro and Mateo Humberto Gonzalez.

“Joshua brings leadership and intensity on the court while Mateo brings knowledge to the team and it shows on the court,” Olympian coach Joe Razo said.
