YUMA, Ariz. – A new coach with a mostly new cast of characters. The Arizona Western College volleyball team is still looking to find it’s groove in the Arizona Community College Athletics Conference after a three-set loss to Yavapai at home.
The Lady Mats couldn’t overcome an 8-1 deficit in the first set, while they came out on the wrong end of a back-and-forth points battle in the second. The third set was just as competitive, but small mistakes put AWC in bind they couldn’t escape.
The Lady Mats Deja Lester finished with 8 kills, while teammate Keana Smalls led the squad with 17 digs on the night.
AWC falls to 1-4 in ACCAC play and will look to rebound on the road this weekend at the Scottsdale Community College Classic Tournament.
