SBCC Volleyball Places 3rd at Pierce Tournament

SBCC split a pair of women’s volleyball matches on Saturday and finished third in the LA Pierce Kickoff Classic at Woodland Hills.

The Vaqueros (3-1) fell to the host Brahmas 3-1 (25-15, 25-21, 18-25, 25-20) in the semifinals, then came back a few hours later and swept Bakersfield 25-17, 25-10, 25-14 in the third-place match.

Shannon Friend had 11 kills, Carolyn Andrulis added 10 kills and eight digs and Kaylene Ureno had nine kills in the Pierce match. Claire Bagdasar led in digs with 10. The Vaqueros were outhit .185 to .139 and had seven service aces with 16 errors.

“The Pierce match was very competitive and ultimately, it came down to serving and passing,” noted SBCC assistant coach Lisa Gera. “We learned a lot from this match and can take a lot away.”

Pierce (4-0) won the eight-team tourney with a 3-0 victory over Mira Costa.

SBCC outhit Bakersfield .284 to .000 in the battle for third place. Friend collected nine kills and six digs while Andrulis had eight kills and Ureno contributed seven kills and nine digs. Bagdasar notched a season-high 16 digs.

The Vaqueros will play in the Bakersfield Quad next Saturday, taking on Bakersfield at 10 a.m. and Antelope Valley at 2 p.m.

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!
