by Staff Nov 15, 2018

Delta College – The 2018 CCCAA Nor-Cal Regional Playoff Bracket has been released, and the Gavilan Volleyball team has been given the #2 seed out of 19. Despite having a record of 27-1, the seeding committee following the rules set in place gave the #1 seed to Cabrillo College who has a record of 25-2. While Cabrillo gave the Rams their only loss of the regular season, the Seahawks lost to Folsom Lake College and American River College, two teams that Rams defeated during the regular season.

For the Rams, the #2 seed means the road to the State Championships could run through the Bud and Jean Ottmar Memorial Gymnasium, just as it did in 2016, the only other time the program has made it to the State Championship. The Rams will play it’s first playoff match on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. Their opponent will be determined after the play in rounds which will be held this Saturday. The play in round has three different matches, #14 De Anza College will take on #19 Solano College, the co-champions of the Bay Valley Conference, # 15 Ohlone College will host #18 Los Medanos College the other co-champion of the Bay Valley and finally #16 Merced College will host #17 College of the Sequoias. After the play in matches are done, the lowest ranked seed will travel to Cabrillo, the next lowest will take on Gavilan on Tuesday night.

Waiting for the winner of the Gavilan and yet to be determined opponent will be the winner of the # 7 Folsom Lake College, #10 Feather River College match that will be held in Folsom. The two teams meet earlier this year and Feather River came out the winner in 4 sets on the road. The Rams did not play Feather River in the regular season, but did play Folsom Lake at home and won that match in 4 sets. The second round of the CCCAA Nor-Cal Regional Playoffs will take place the November 24th, the Saturday after Thanksgiving at 7 p.m. at the higher seeded team home court. Go Rams!
