Tonight in Phoenix, YC continued their winning ways in their conference opener with a 3-0 (25-21, 25-17, 25-14) blanking of the Cougars from South Mountain Community College.

Yavapai was led by Lauren Bevan with 10 kills. Natalie Fahey was solid with 8 kills, 4 blocks and 3 aces. The “playmaker” Libby Ary recorded 35 assists and Jordan Lopez had 12 digs and 2 aces.
