YC Volleyball plays 6 matches in 2 days
The Lady Rider volleyball team had a rough go of it over the weekend as they hit the courts in the highly competitive Salt Lake City Community College Invitational. YC concluded the tournament with a 2-4 overall record.
Head Coach Matt Cohen’s squad opened the tournament against the #5 ranked team in the NJCAA, Western Nebraska CC. Yavapai did not prove that ranking wrong as WNCC beat the home squad in two sets, 19-30 and 17-30. Later that same day, Yavapai lost to North Idaho College (22-30, 21-30) and Snow College, UT (26-30, 30-26, 16-10) and beat College of Eastern Utah (30-28, 30-18) to put them in the win column. YC opened the next day with a victory over Pitt Community College, NC (30-21, 30-13).
Beginning tournament play, the lady spikers faced Snow College in the consolation bracket with revenge on their minds. However, Snow closed the hopes of payback with a 3-2 victory putting a lid on the Lady Rider day.
Yavapai resumes ACCAC play on Wednesday, September 5th at Phoenix College. The match will begin at 7:00 PM.
