|LA City Earns A Split|
Oct. 9, 2007
The Lady Cubs were 1-1 in two road contests last week. LA City defeated a struggling East Los Angeles College Huskies squad at ELAC before falling to No. 3 ranked El Camino two nights later in volleyball action last week.
The Lady Cubs record moved to 2-4 overall. All four losses have been against 2006 Conference champions and/or State post-season play-off teams.
Oct. 3 - LA City @ East LA
East LA composed one of their finest matches of the season but fell short of defeating the Lady Cubs in five games. “City” rallied in the fifth game to capture the match 14-30, 31-29, 30-26, 17-30, and 15-13.
Freshman Virginia Flores (Manual Arts HS) recorded her fifth consecutive high-power game with a match high 22 kills and three blocks.
Outside hitter Nancy Alcaraz (So., Manual Arts HS) prowled the net for 12 kills while serving up four aces.
Freshman Colene Santos (Fairfax HS) combined with sophomore Nayeli Avendano (Thomas Jefferson HS) for 33 digs. Santos also added five aces and seven kills to her 19 digs.
Freshman setter Ada Canizales (Belmont HS) led all players with a season high 37 assists.
Stephanie Cabrera (Fr., Los Angeles HS) was credited with three aces and 10 digs. Sophomore middle-blocker Ana Avellan (Pacific Christian HS) scored four blocks.
“All in all, it was a solid, hard earned victory over a spirited East LA team,” said LA City head coach Levik Abramians. “I have to also note that the overall games of Colene Santos and Nayeli Avendano were instrumental in keeping the Lady Cubs focused during the tougher portions of the match.”
Oct. 5 - LA City @ El Camino
LA City was well aware that playing at El Camino was going to anything but easy especially with the Lady Warriors being ranked 3rd in the state. That proved to be the case as the Lady Cubs fell 11-30, 23-30, and 14-30.
Santos scored seven kills and three aces. Avendano came away with 21 digs. Avellan added four blocks while outside hitter Nancy Alcaraz (So., Manual Arts HS) scored 10 kills and six aces
