(Monterey Park, CA) The defending 2016 South Coast Conference North champion Mt. SAC Women's Volleyball team started where they left off last season with a 3-1 win over East Los Angeles College Wednesday evening.
The Mounties (7-10, 1-0), dating back to the 2015 season, won their 11th consecutive conference match with a 25-21, 25-14, 32-34, 25-22 win.
"The team pulled together at the end and powered through to hold off a tough ELAC squad," Mt. SAC Women's Volleyball coach Ali Carey-Oliver said.
Mt. SAC middle blocker Jordon Wilson led all players with a match-high 20 kills, the most all season for the sophomore. Wilson has amassed 153 kills on the season.
Mt. SAC, after a 2-0 lead in games, played the longest set dating back in over five years (last records) and fell, 34-32. The Mounties won a set, 30-28 in 2015 over Pasadena City College. In that marathon set both teams combined for 38 kills.
The Mounties won the fourth set 25-22 for the match victory.
The Mounties continue SCC North action this Friday October 6 at home against Chaffey with a 6:00 pm match.
