Volleyball Upsets #10 Scottsdale
The Lady Rider volleyball team has faced some stiff competition on the better part of this young season. Tonight, YC squared off against their 8th nationally ranked opponent. Until tonight, the lady spikers were winless in those contests…UNTIL TONIGHT! Yavapai came from behind to knock off the 10th ranked team in the NJCAA, Scottsdale Community College, 3-2 (21-25, 14-25, 25-14, 25-23 and 15-8).
After two complete games, YC found themselves in a deep hole down 2-0. However, head coach Matt Cohen rallied the troops to win the final three and improve their record to 8-12 overall and 1-2 in the ACCAC. SCC falls to 17-4 and 4-3.
The Lady Riders will play their next three matches at home beginning this Friday in the Storm Center against Mesa Community College (3-7, 1-4). On Saturday, Chandler/Gilbert Community College (3-7, 1-3) comes to town and on Monday, first place Eastern Arizona College (13-5, 5-0) invades the campus. Friday and Monday’s matches will start at 7:00 PM and on Saturday, the first serve will be at 3:00 PM.
