Volleyball Drops 2 Matches in Las Vegas
On day 1 of the Coyote Invitational the Roughriders played well but were not strong enough to knock off #10 Seward County CC or #4 Salt Lake CC. Playing two top 10 opponents in a 5 hour period was rough but the Yavapai squad rose to the challenge and competed against both nationally ranked teams.
In the opener Yavapai lost to #10 Seward County CC in 4 sets. 21-25, 28-26, 19-25, 21-25. Against #4 Salt Lake CC Yavapai did not extend the match past 3 sets but they kept it close and almost won set 2. The final scores were 15-25, 24-26, 17-25.
Yavapai will look to rebound from their 4 match losing streak on Saturday morning as they take on Utah State University – Eastern at 9:00 am and will then conclude the tournament in Las Vegas with a noon match against Victor Valley CC.
