Volleyball Extends Winning Streak to 6 Consecutive
The Roughriders took advantage of playing at home for the first time in 2 weeks as they came out strong and dominated the first 2 sets against Pima winning by a combined 21 points (25-15, 25-14). Unfortunately Yavapai could not take advantage of the 2-0 lead as they dropped the 3rd set 21-25. As they have done most of the season after dropping a set they rebound with a strong effort and closed out the match in the 4th set 25-21.
The team combined for 48 kills (12 per set) and a strong hitting percentage of .227. Outside hitter Iva Alebic led the team with 22 kills on only 48 attempts and middle blocker Bailey Anderson was 2nd with 9 kills and a team high .364 hitting percentage. Current ACCAC DI Player of the Week Jordan Tilley directed the offense from the setting position and collected 41 assists and 10 digs for another double / double. Alebic also finished with a double / double as she chipped in 13 digs to go with her 22 kills. Libero Hannah Semon was tops defensively as dug 14 of Pima’s attacks.
With the win Yavapai improves to an overall record of 14-9 and conference record of 7-4. The team will attempt to earn another ACCAC win on Friday as they travel to Phoenix to take on South Mountain CC at 7:00 pm.
