By Assistant Coach Amanda Richards and Head Coach Jeremy Penaflor, Ohlone College Women's Volleyball.
Our Ohlone Women's Volleyball team has started the season strong. After returning from a bonding trip to San Luis Obispo, California and a long day of scrimmages at the Cuesta College Straight Down Scrimmage Tournament, the team went on to sweep Mendocino College and Consumnes River College back to back at the Cougar Classic Tournament hosted by College of Alameda. They continued their winning streak, extending it to four consecutive wins with victories over Lassen College and College of the Siskiyous. Although the streak came to an end with three consecutive losses the girls continued to fight despite tough competition. Libero Taylor Presley put out an impressive effort to earn a high of 46 digs in the match against Cuesta College, and outside hitter Brittany Creel earned 21 kills alone in the match against Los Medanos College. Our Renegades started Coast Conference matches with a record of 6-4 and just recently scored a win over Cañada College to start Coast Conference play at 1-0. Despite one of our best matches played, we suffered our first conference lost to Gavilan College in a tight four set match, putting us at 1-1. We are very happy with the improvement the team has shown through the non-conference portion of our schedule. Although we play in a tough conference, we believe that the girls are prepared to take on the challenges ahead. And the greatest thing about the journey is that we are working hard and having fun at the same time. We really enjoy being around the girls, and we love seeing how well they get along and interact with each other both on and off the court. We look forward to the rest of the season, and we hope to continue the great successes we have achieved so far both on the court and in the classroom.
