SBCC Drops Four-Set Match Against Long Beach

Taylor McCluskey had 18 kills and a season-high 15 digs on Wednesday night but Long Beach rallied for a 3-1 victory over SBCC in the WSC men’s volleyball opener at the Sports Pavilion. The scores were 18-25, 25-17, 26-24, 25-19.

 “We got outserved and outpassed tonight,” said coach Matt Jones. “That’s a good team and we have to get them out of system to be efficient. We didn’t serve well, we missed too many and didn’t hit our zones consistently, except for the first set. Our serve-receive was kind of all over the place.”

 The Vaqueros (5-3, 0-1) tied their season-high with a .302 hitting percentage but didn’t serve well with one ace and 12 errors in the match.

 McCluskey recorded a season-best .412 hitting percentage. Jackson Wopat added 11 kills and Robert Gulvin had nine kills, a .583 percentage and four blocks, including three solo.

 Matt Bohorquez notched a season-high 14 digs and Kyle Smiley had 45 assists, missing his career high by one.

Long Beach is favored to win the WSC this year. Andrew Pearson had 23 kills and hit. 333, leading the Vikings (8-2, 1-0) to their eighth straight win.

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!
