Volleyball Bounces Back With Sweep At ELAC
With its hopes of back-to-back South Coast Conference titles dashed in a loss to El Camino College, The Pasadena City College women's volleyball team got back on track only a day later with a rout at East Los Angeles College, 25-16, 25-18, 25-4, Thursday evening.
The state's No. 4-ranked Lancers improved to 17-4 overall and 9-2, entrenched in second place in the conference. With three matches remaining in the regular season, PCC is preparing for its postseason run.
Against the Huskies, sophomore middle blocker Kirsten Taylor led the way with 11 kills without making an error (21 attempts), and a season-high six service aces. Transfer setter Danielle Stewart added 31 assists, eight digs and four aces as the team served up 16 aces overall.
Sophomore opposite Miranda Doing knocked down 10 kills and three blocks, sophomore outside hitter Aliyyah Abdullah had eight kills, and sophomore middle blocker Jessica Foley contributed seven kills in just nine attempts. Freshman libero Jessica Vargas totaled 16 digs and a pair of aces, and frosh outside hitter Brenda Moscoso tallied three kills, nine digs and two aces.
Coach Tammy Silva's Lancers next travel to face Cerritos College on Wednesday, Nov. 10 in a 6:30 p.m. match at Gahr High School. The Falcons are having construction on a new gymnasium, forcing them to play all home games this season at the Cerritos-located prep facility.
