Lancers volleyball swept Rio Hondo and Glendale at the Orange Coast Quad Tournament in Costa Mesa this past weekend in what were their first away games of the season.
Despite a valiant second half rally to send the game into overtime, the 10th-seeded Lancers women’s basketball team could not overcome a 14-point first half deficit, losing to seventh-seeded El Camino College, 71-64, in Round 2 of the Southern California Regional Playoffs Friday night.
The women’s basketball team almost pulled off a stunning comeback win at the Hutto-Patterson gymnasium on Wednesday against their crosstown rivals East LA CC Huskies, who prevailed 67-62 due to a dominating defensive performance that forced the Lady Lancers to commit way too many costly errors.
The stage was set for arguably one of the games of the conference season, with the No. 18 ranked Lancers hoping to cause an upset and also wanting to atone for a thrilling one-point overtime loss to East LA College in their previous conference match-up on January 10. Both teams showed in their intense pre-game huddles this wasn’t just another game.
With the departure of five sophomores from last season’s squad and an early season-ending injury to the team’s lone returning sophomore, Saige Spence, the Lancers finished the season with a 5-16 overall record, good for sixth place in the South Coast Conference.
The women’s volleyball team finally broke a four-game losing streak, but more importantly their win in straight sets over LA Trade tech enabled sophomore’s Megan Williams and Sabrina Takeuchi to taste victory in their final home game in a Lancers uniform
The Lancers’ volleyball team snapped a 9-match losing streak Friday with a home victory over East Los Angeles College.
The Lancers volleyball team remains winless on the 2014 season after their conference opening loss to Mt. San Antonio on Friday.
Before the 2014 season began, the Lancers volleyball team and coaching staff were well aware of the big shoes to team had to fill. Gone from last year’s team are the Lancers’ all-time aces and kills leader, Nora To’omalatai, and last season’s vocal leader Thula Parks.
