(Walnut, CA) How Sweep it is! The Mt. SAC Women's Volleyball Team swept the visiting Glendale Vaqueros in dominating fashion Wednesday night, September 5 at the Mounties Gym in a nonconference match.
With scores of 25-5, 25-10, 25-15, Mt. SAC improved to 1-2 in nonconference action. They travel to San Diego this weekend, September 7-8, to play in the San Diego Mesa College Tournament. Their first match is against Cypress College.
"I'm proud of our aggressiveness tonight," Mt. SAC coach Ali Carey-Oliver said. "We need to continue to work to speed up our offense and stay disciplined on defense. We did a good job executing and made a big improvement on finishing the rallies."
The Mounties dropped their first two matches of the season to Grossmont and Fullerton.
"Last week was tough," Carey-Oliver said. "We started off very strong against Grossmont and our nerves got the best of us in the end. We started slow against Fullerton and just couldn't recover quick enough to push them to five games. We're excited to get down to the Mesa tournament and I look forward to seeing how the squad performs there."
Sophomore outside hitter Alysha Tullar (3 Digs, 2 Service Aces) and sophomore middle blocker Shaianne Palos (2 Digs) had four kills each and freshman outside hitter Macy Barnes (4 Digs) added three kills.
Sophomore defensive specialist Malia Carr led the team with 10 digs and a match-high five service aces.
Freshman middle blocker Kristi Mertins, who played earlier in the day in goal for the women water polo team had one kill and a block, along with a block from Lane.
