YC Volleyball Releases 2013 Schedule
When the 2013 volleyball season officially begins on August 23rd it will mark the 42nd season for the Yavapai College volleyball team. The 2012 team finished with an outstanding record of 29-7 narrowly missing out on the playoffs due to a four way tie breaker.
The Roughrider volleyball team opens their season away from Prescott at the New Mexico Military Institute Classic on August 23rd. While in Roswell the team will face three strong opponents from the state of Texas and perennial powerhouse Hutchinson CC from Kansas who qualified for the NJCAA National Championship Tournament in 2012.
Yavapai will open their ACCAC and home schedule on Tuesday August 27th against South Mountain CC at 7:00 pm. The 2013 schedule will include trips to Los Angeles, CA and Ephraim, UT for non-conference matches as well as a cross town showdown with Embry Riddle University on Saturday September 7th (4:00 pm) on the Yavapai campus. This match will be special because it will be designated as a “pink match” to help raise awareness and donations for the fight against breast cancer.
Although the Roughriders will have to compete on the road for much of the middle part of their season they are looking forward to the home stretch where they will play three consecutive home matches against their ACCAC DI opponents from October 25th through November 1st. Prior to the contest against Central Arizona College at on November 1st the sophomore class will be honored as the regular season concludes.
