Roughriders Sweep Trojans in District Playoffs
Wednesday was a busy day for Roughrider Volleyball! In the morning they signed 4 recruits to national Letters of Intent for 2018 then played in the District B Semi-Final match. The Roughriders were able to come away with a 3 set victory (25-10, 25-22, 25-19) and advance to play Eastern Arizona College on Friday night for the District B Championship. The winner will advance to the NJCAA National Championship Tournament later in November.
Both the offense and defense were clicking for the Roughriders against Seminole State College. As a team they hit .132 for the match with sophomores Baylie Stephens and Madelynn McKeown leading the way with .429 and .300 respectively. In the blocking column Yavapai finished with 9 blocks and middle blocker Baylie Stephens again led the Roughriders with 4 block assists. Freshman libero Victoria McCarty was tops on the team with 14 digs.
The District B Championship match is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm on the campus of Eastern Arizona College. In 2017 the Roughriders are 2-1 against the Gila Monsters.
