Volleyball On The Road
Yavapai College volleyball is determined more than ever to make noise and turn heads this season. The Roughriders not only want to cause a scene in the competitive ACCAC Conference, but they intend to crash the NJCAA party after being left at the door last year.
The 2008 Yavapai Volleyball season is officially underway, with the Roughriders talented cast of returnees and star-studded recruiting class will travel to Salt Lake City, Utah for the SLCC Tourney. This year’s squad of 13 hit the court for the second time this year in high spirits, after last week successful trip to NMMI. The players are buzzing with enthusiasm, cheering on their teammates with energy and excitement eager to hit the court again.
Yavapai had a set of convincing wins against Pratt, Otero, Vernon and Garden City College opening weekend before dropping a pair to NMMI and second ranked Frank Philips.
