|LA City Wins Two Big Games!|
Oct. 30, 2007
The Lady Cubs won two crucial matches last week against LA Trade Tech and East Los Angeles to remain in the hunt for a post-season volleyball berth in the State play-offs.
Tomorrow’s contest should be a “high flying” affair as SCC leading and No. 3 ranked El Camino (20-1, 9-0) plays LA City in The Gym. LACC will then prepare for a crucial road match this Friday against No. 18 ranked Mt. San Antonio College.
The Lady Cubs improved to 4-8 overall, and 4-5 in the South Coast Conference to move into fourth place. Five losses have come against 2006 Conference champions and/or State post-season play-off teams.
Oct. 24 - LA City @ LA Trade Tech
Winless Trade Tech posed a concern for the Lady Cubs simply because LA City didn’t want their play-off hopes derailed by becoming LATT’s first victim. Accordingly, LA City pounded Trade Tech, 30-17, 30-29 and 30-22.
Sophomore outside hitter Nancy Alcaraz (Manual Arts HS) scored 11 kills and seven aces. Sophomore middle-blocker Ana Avellan (Pacific Christian HS) played a solid defensive game while adding 10 kills.
Oct. 26 - LA City v. East Los Angeles College
ELAC’s Lady Huskies were seeking a late season surge but the Lady Cubs weren’t permitting it on this night. LA City controlled the match’s tempo from start to finish in sweeping East LA 30-28, 30-19, and 30-19.
Freshman Nadia Aguilar (Sacred Heart HS) played her best game of the season in recording a remarkable 16 kills, five aces, and two blocks.
LA City sophomore outside hitter Nancy Alcaraz (Manual Arts HS) was close behind as her “net prowling” led to 14 kills along with four serving aces.
Freshman Virginia Flores (Manual Arts HS) continued her stellar season in adding nine more kills. Freshman setter Ada Canizales (Belmont HS) led all players with a career and season high 43 assists.
