The No. 6 state-ranked women’s volleyball team opened up the South Coast Conference with a 3-1 win against Long Beach City College on Sept. 30.

This gives PCC an unbeaten edge in conference play with a 1-0 record and brings their overall record to nine wins and one loss. The Lancers did not start the game off on top and lost the first set, 25-16, but returned for the second match in winning form.

“[In] game one we came out flat and it showed,” said Head Coach Tammy Silva. “In games two, three and four, we controlled the momentum and tempo of the game and I think we did well.”

The Vikings put up a fair fight in the second set, but it wasn’t enough to match the Lancers, who took the win 25-17. The Lancers breezed by the next two matches, winning with scores of 25-9 and 25-13.

Audience member and former volleyball player, Alexandra Ballesteros, thought the Vikings was a worthy team. “Despite the lead [the Lancers] had throughout the majority of the game, the Vikings never seemed to lose hope and their determination was visible,” Ballesteros said.

Sophomore outside hitter, Ella Moe, led the way with 18 kills, while setter Jessica Xu had 24 assists, and libero Jessica Vargas had 17 digs.

The Lancers next face Cerritos College on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m.
