Lady Corsairs Finally Break Through In 3-0 Shutout
The Lady Corsairs won last Tuesday's volleyball game against West Los Angeles College Wildcats with a final score of 3-0.
SMC won the last set with a score of 25-10, thus defeating West L.A. College in one of West L.A.'s worst losses this year.
Throughout the game the Lady Corsairs showed an ability to defend and attack the ball that few volleyball teams accomplished this season.
The positive vibe of their game started within the first 15 minutes as the SMC team players were leading with a score of 14-8 points.
The strong support from the SMC volleyball fans was also shown as many came to watch and cheer for their favorite team.
By the second set, when the Lady Corsairs took the lead on the second set as well, with a score of 19-6 points, it was clear that they had a very good chance to win.
The second set was closed with a few kills from the SMC players leaving the defensive Wildcats with a 25-13 second set loss.
"It might be sort of a turning point for us, energy wise and being able to play together," saidcoach Nicole Ryan. "We've switched around, made some adjustments with the lineups and I'm hoping that's a good thing."
The Lady Corsairs team chemistry has been a key ingredient for many of their wins this season.
The volleyball season is not yet over, with a few more games left to play against some worthy opponents, such as Pierce College, Citrus College, Bakersfield and West L.A. College.
The team's record, at press time, is 1-5 and are placed in the bottom part of their conference standings. However, with impressive performances against these teams, the Lady Corsairs have the chance to reach at least a .500 record by season's end.
Until the end of the season, they will be working hard to increase their record and start next year's team off to a good start.
