Sierra Madre, CA (February 22, 
2017) – The Alverno Jaguars 
hosted the California Academy 
of Math and Science Rebels in 
the second round of the CIF 
Southern Section Division 7 
Playoffs. After a scoreless draw in 
regulation time, the Jaguars won 
in overtime 1-0.

 The Jaguars’ first offensive 
threat came in the 26th minute 
when team co-captain senior 
defender Nicole Lianto ‘17 (6) 
passed to sophomore midfielder 
Beatriz Rivas ‘19 (16). Rivas 
connected with junior midfielder 
Jazmin Rebollo ‘18 (19), but 
the cross to co-captain senior 
forward Britni Delgado ‘17 (11) 
was intercepted by a charging 
Rebels goalkeeper. In the 37th 
minute, Rebollo ‘18 passed to 
Delgado ‘17 in the corner who 
connected with Rivas ‘19 in the 
penalty box, but Rivas’s shot was 
saved by the diving goalkeeper. 
In stoppage time, Delgado 
‘17 received a throw-in from 
freshman defender Cassie Lianto 
‘20 (10) and connected with 
Rebollo ‘18, but Rebollo’s shot 
was saved by the goalkeeper.

 The Jaguars attack continued 
into the second half. In the 58th 
minute, Rebollo ‘18 took a pass 
from Cassie Lianto ‘20 and 
connected with junior forward 
Natalie Scigliano ‘18 (5). Scigliano 
’18 found Rivas ‘18 making a run, 
but Rivas’s shot was saved by the 
leaping goalkeeper. In the 64th 
minute, Rivas received a throw-
in from sophomore defender 
Elisia Bendy ‘19 (2) and passed 
to Nicole Lianto ‘17. Lianto’s 
through-ball to Rebollo ‘18 in the 
penalty box was intercepted by 
the Rebels goalkeeper. In the 66th 
minute, Delgado passed back to 
sophomore midfielder Megan 
Cavender ‘19 (22) whose shot 
from outside the penalty box was 
saved by the goalkeeper. In the 
75th minute, Rivas ’18 also tried a 
shot from distance that was saved 
by the goalkeeper.

 The impenetrable Jaguars 
defense consisting of Nicole 
Lianto ‘17, junior Nikki 
Oberhammer ‘18 (17), Bendy 
‘19, Cassie Lianto ‘20, and junior 
goalkeeper Ayanna Melin ‘18 (1) 
held the Rebels to only 1 shot on 
goal and allowed no corner kicks. 
The teams were in a scoreless 
stalemate after regulation.

 In the 7th minute of overtime, 
the Rebels were called for a 
handball. Rebollo’s free kick was 
deflected by a Rebels player for an 
own goal.

 The Jaguars advance to the 
quarterfinal round to face 
Rancho Mirage High School on 
Friday, February 24, 2017, at the 
Rancho Mirage campus.

About Alverno Heights 

Alverno Heights Academy 
is an all-girls, independent, 
progressive Catholic, college 
preparatory school dedicated to 
its mission of empowering each 
young woman to be exactly the 
person she wants to be. Located 
on the property of the former 
Barlow Estate in Sierra Madre, 
California, Alverno Heights 
Academy was founded in 1960 
by the Sisters of St. Francis who 
sought to create an environment 
in the San Gabriel Valley where 
young women could become 
informed and knowledgeable 
persons. Later renamed Alverno 
High School and sponsored by the 
Immaculate Heart Community, 
Alverno’s program—academic, 
spiritual, aesthetic, social, and 
physical—has been shaped by 
the staff, trustees, and students. 
As Alverno Heights Academy 
once again, the school remains 
committed to its mission by 
encouraging each of their 
young women to be who they 
imagine. For more information
