Two More Sweeps

by Staff Oct 28, 2018

San Mateo, CA – This past week the volleyball team played in two matches, won two matches both of which were three set sweeps. On top of that, the Rams tied then broke the programs record for wins in a season, with their 23rd win on Friday night surpassing the mark set in 2013. And they still have four regular season games and at least one playoff game left to play.

Gavilan started the week taking on the Dons of De Anza College. It was the two middles that wreaked havoc and controlled the net on the way to a 25-15, 25-22, 25-19 win. Evelyn Clonts had a team high 9 kills, 1 hitting error on 16 attacks to go along with her 5 blocks. Not to be left out is the other middle, Camille Finley who had 8 kills with 0 errors on 12 swings which comes to an absurd .667 hitting percentage.  Kieley Hoskins lead the team in assists with 21, with Greysen Gilroy not far behind with 14 of her own. Mikeila Banda had 10 digs, while Charlotte Cannizzaro and Noel Chavarria both had 6 apiece. Seven different Rams recorded an ace from the service line on the way to having a team total of 10 on the night.

Friday night, the Rams were in San Mateo taking on Canada College, who is playing at College of San Mateo while their new gym is being constructed. From start to Teresa Ochoa hittingfinish, this match was all Rams as they would go on to get their 23rd win of the season by a score of 25-12, 25-9, 25-12. Teresa Ochoa was the team’s leader in kills with 8 while taking only 9 swings with no errors. That comes to an unheard-of hitting percentage of .889. Ochoa only played in the first two set of the match before getting some well-deserved rest. Finley continued her hot week of hitting with 7 more kills followed by Sarah Weiby who had 4 kills on 8 swings.  Hoskins had 14 assists, while Gilroy had 12 as the two continue to run the offense together. Banda had 8 digs and was followed by Gilroy with 5.

The Rams improve their record to 23-1 and 8-0 in conference play. They are currently in first place in conference play, sitting two games up on Ohlone College and three up over De Anza College and Foothill College with only four games left to play. They will take on San Jose City College on the rare Tuesday night game at home starting at 6:30. Then on Friday they will drive up to Los Altos Hills to take on rival Foothill College.  Go Rams!
