The City College Rams savored their victory on Oct. 28 against Gavilan College in a decisive three-set Coast Conference win and breaking a three-game losing streak.
After losing two of the first three volleyball sets, the Rams roared back against the Hartnell College Panthers on Oct. 12 by dominating the fourth and fifth sets for a 3-2 set win.
The Ram’s nine-match winning streak on the volleyball court came to an end on Sept. 30 when they fell 0-3 to the defending state champion, the Cabrillo Hawks.
After suffering their lone loss of the season to Gavilan College in their second match of the year on Friday, Sept. 9, the Rams were out for revenge when Gavilan came to City College for a rematch one week later.
Head coach Saga Vae is “really excited” about his 2016 women’s volleyball team.
“This group never gives up. A lot of teams will be glad we’re small when they see us walk into the gym,” Vae said, referencing the team’s lack of height compared to previous years. “But we’ll surprise them.”
Despite a handful of losses that resulted from injuries, the Rams’ volleyball season is a success and during their match against Skyline College the squad was healthier than they’ve been in weeks.
