AEA v-ball gets school's first playoff win

Albert Einstein Academy didn’t simply win its first playoff match in school history.

It did so with an exclamation mark.

In its second year of varsity athletic play, Einstein girls volleyball beat Shalhevet of Los Angeles 3-0 in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division VA playoffs by scores of 25-10, 25-12, 25-11 on Tuesday at Jewish Community Center in Los Angeles.

That’s the first playoff win in any sport for Einstein, the Santa Clarita Valley’s newest high school.

“They were thrilled to have on won, but it really was kind of nice because they were humble,” said Einstein head coach Ken Erenberg. “They knew they weren’t done. They can go further.”

This season, Einstein (13-6) finished third in the Omega League and earned a playoffs against Shalhevet (5-6), the second-place finisher out of the Mulholland League.

In Tuesday’s match senior Maddy Regan had five kills and five aces while fellow senior Sabrina Hinajosa tallied nine aces.

They are the team’s only two seniors.

“I’ve got a really good mix,” Erenberg said. “I’ve got two seniors who are my team captains and then I’ve got a lot of really strong younger players.”

In the second round on Thursday, Einstein will face either Southwestern Academy or West Shores, which is the No. 2 seed in the bracket.

If the opponent is West Shores, Einstein is set to host the match at 6 p.m. at Legacy Volleyball Club.
