Tonight at 7:30pm the volleyball teams of the 5Cs are together again to battle it out at Ducey Gynmasium. After bringing home 4 wins in the Cal Lutheran Tournament this past weekend, the Athenas have improved their overall record to 14-8. CMS was matched against Widener and Lycoming on Friday and Mary Washington and Wisconsin Lutheran on Saturday. At the end of their tournament, in the match against Wisconsin Lutheran, the Athenas were led offensively by freshman Regina Mullen with 19 kills followed by sophomores Bennett Jones and Megan Richman with 12 and 11 kills respectively. Junior Setter Taylor Jones led in assists with 51, and freshman Libero Megan Coleman dominated defensively with 34 digs.
The Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens are battling through a disappointing October with a four game losing streak, making their season record 5-13. Although losing in their last matchup with the Athenas (3-1 CMS), the Sagehens proved very competitive both offensively and defensively with Ellen Yamasaki leading her team with 19 kills and Heidi Leonard with 21 digs.
This should be an exciting match for the Athenas as it marks the start of the second round of SCIAC conference play.
