Gilroy, CA- Playing in only their second home game of the season, the Gavilan College Volleyball team was prepared to play in a highly contested match against Ohlone College on Wednesday Night. After losing to Gavilan in the first round of conference play, Ohlone would go on to knock off De Anza College the second-place team in the standings and Foothill College the only conference team to beat Gavilan. What occurred instead was a three-set sweep for the Rams 25-16, 25-16 and 25-19.

It was another balanced attack offensively for the Rams, with Haley Leifheit being the leader with 7 kills, Evelyn Clonts 6 kills and Jenna Clonts and Katelyn Viray both with 5. Christa Arroyo had 15 assists with Greysen Gilroy contributing 12 of her own. Defensively for Gavilan it was Mikeila Banda with 9 digs and Evelyn Clonts with 4 blocks, who help shut down the Ohlone attack that only hit .060% for the match.

The win now put the Gavilan record at 16-6 and 6-1 in conference play. Going into Wednesday night, the Rams were one game up on De Anza and two games up on Foothill and Ohlone. De Anza defeated Foothill in three sets not long after the Rams win, to set up a showdown for 1st place next Wednesday Night (November 8th). A win for the Rams would give them a two game lead with three to play, a loss would put the two teams on equal footing atop the standings leaving Gavilan no room for error if they want to win a share of the conference championship.
