Gilroy, CA-The Gavilan College Volleyball suffered a heart-breaking loss in a five-set slug fest to De Anza College last night 19-25, 25-13, 25-11, 20-25, 14-16.

The Rams had a breakout night offensively by Camille Finley who had a team high and a career high 16 kills. She was followed by Evelyn Clonts and Jenna Clonts who both had 11 kills. Christa Arroyo handed out 23 assists with Greysen Gilroy giving out 19 assists of her own. Defensively it was Katia Dizon who had 20 digs and Mikeila Banda with 14. At the net Evelyn Clonts tied the Gavilan record for most blocks in a match with 9, a mark set by her and Finley, earlier in the year. Finley was not far behind with 5 blocks.

The Rams are 16-7 and 6-2 in conference play. They sit tied atop of the conference with De Anza. Both teams are one up on Foothill College, which is important because the first and second place teams in conference will receive an automatic berth into the CCCAA Regional Playoffs. Gavilan now has two matches left to play. A Friday night match up with Canada College and a Tuesday night match against Foothill College. If they win out, they will share the Championship with De Anza and hold the tie breaker against the Don’s when it comes to playoff seedings. Any loss could end up putting the Rams tied for second place with Foothill, assuming Foothill wins the remainder of their matches, in which case Foothill would hold the tie breaker against the Rams.
