SBCC Volleyball: Young Vaqueros Rally for First Win of Season

Samantha Potter and Chelsey Forrey lead the come-from-behind victory.

Samantha Potter pounded 27 kills for Santa Barbara City College and Chelsey Forrey provided superior serving Tuesday night to spark a come-from-behind 25-27, 23-25, 25-13, 25-22, 15-10 women’s volleyball victory at Santa Monica. It was the first win of the season for the young Vaqueros (1-3).

“Chelsey gave us unbelievable serving to get us back in the match,” coach Ed Gover said. “She had great locations in games three and five that led to four or five points in a row.”

Gover also praised the setting of Amelia Shugrue and the defense of Vanessa Shaw (15 digs).

“We showed great composure (after dropping the first two games),” Gover said. “We started siding out, started swinging hard and then we got great serving from Chelsey.”

SBCC will host its own Quad Tournament on Saturday, with the Western State Conference taking on the Orange Empire Conference. SBCC will battle 17-time state champion Golden West (4-0) at noon, followed by Fullerton at 4 p.m.

Dave Loveton is Santa Barbara City College‘s sports information specialist.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
