Volleyball Winning Streak Ends at 6
On Friday night Yavapai Volleyball traveled to Yuma, AZ to take on the conference leading Matadors of Arizona Western College. Unfortunately Yavapai did not bring enough offense with them on the road trip. The squad could only muster 21 kills and a .124 hitting percentage. By adding in 8 reception errors and 7 service errors Yavapai made it too easy on the home team and the Matadors won by scores of 17-25, 19-25, 24-26.
One bright spot for the Roughriders was their defense. Yavapai combined for 14 blocks and 52 digs. Sophomore middle blocker Braxton Fenter had 3 of the block assists and freshman libero Brooke Donnelly was outstanding with a match high 17 digs.
Yavapai continues their road swing as they travel to Thatcher, AZ on Wednesday to challenge the Gila Monsters of Eastern Arizona.
