Volleyball Improves to 10-2 in ACCAC
The Roughriders traveled to Phoenix College to challenge the Bears and returned victorious with a 3-0 win. Yavapai won by scores of 25-20, 25-18, 25-16.
The Roughriders were effective offensively hitting .250 as a team. Sophomore middle blocker Shelby Mottram (last week’s ACCAC DI Player of the Week) led the team hitting .533 with 9 kills. Mottram also chipped in 4 blocks and 3 digs. The kills were spread around evenly with all 5 starting attackers earning somewhere between 5-9 kills. Freshman setter Jordan Tilley connected well with her hitters gathering 27 assists and adding 5 digs.
Yavapai will now look forward to the remainder of their schedule to be played at home in Walraven Gym. The Roughriders will face Arizona Western (twice), Eastern Arizona, and Central Arizona in order to complete the ACCAC regular season slate. If Yavapai can secure 1 more win they will have a first round bye in the District C playoffs and host the District C Championship on Friday November 6th. The winner of the District C Championship earns a trip to the NJCAA DI National Championship Tournament in Casper, WY.
