(Torrance, CA) The Mt. SAC Women's Volleyball team maintained its first-place lead in the South Coast Conference with a 3-1 win over host El Camino on Wednesday (Nov. 2).

The Mounties (17-4, 9-1), who are ahead of second-place Rio Hondo (7-2) with two matches remaining in the conference, won 25-22, 25-15, 17-25, 26-24 over El Camino.

"Round two of South Coast Conference play has demanded us to continue to evolve and adapt to teams we are now seeing for the second time around," Mt. SAC Women's Volleyball coach Samantha Neely said. "El Camino played tough and forced us to play even tougher. I was proud of our team for staying composed in the tight moments and playing fearlessly together to pull out the four-set win."

Leading the way for CCCAA State No. 11 Mt. SAC was Angelina Burton (4 Digs) with 15 kills (.312) and Allison Whiteman (3 D) had 14 kills (.297).

Whiteman, a sophomore outside hitter/opposite was named the CCCAA State Player of the Week this past week.

Kylie Rhodes (5 D, 1 K, 1 SA) led with 24 assists and Capri Salmon (8 D, 1 K) had 18 assists. Riley DeGroot (7 K, 3 SA) and Riannel Arevalo (3 A, 2 SA) added 15 and 10 digs, respectively.

In the first set, with the Mounties holding a one-point, 23-22 lead, they won the final two points on a kill by Leia Campbell and a service ace by JJ Quarrels for the 25-22 win.

In set number two, the Mounties started with a quick, 8-2 lead, and continued to build their lead by 10 points, 24-14, which ended with a Warrior service error for the two-set lead.

Mt. SAC never led in the third set and El Camino won going away to prevent a sweep, to trail, 2-1.

The fourth and final set was close throughout and ended with a kill by Whiteman for the match win.

"At the beginning of the season we talked about one of our big goals was to win the conference outright for the first time in school history. That goal is very tangible, and our eyes are focused on finishing conference play strong."

The Mounties, with two SCC matches remaining, host East L.A. on Wednesday (Nov. 9).
