Volleyball Falls In A Heartbreaker
The Lady Rider volleyball team came close to pulling off their second upset in less than a week last night in the Storm Center in a five-game loss to ACCAC co-leader Eastern Arizona College (15-5, 7-0). Yavapai (9-14, 2-4) seemed to be in control of the match winning the first two games handily, 25-19 and 25-20. However, the nationally ranked Gila Monsters bounced back in the final three games to win their seventh conference match of the year, 25-23, 25-14 and 15-9.
Phoenix College will be next on the schedule for the lady spikers on Wednesday and return home for a Friday home match against Chandler/Gilbert Community College. To conclude the busy week, the ladies will travel to Yuma to face the defending NJCAA Region I champions Arizona Western College.
