The Bakersfield College Women’s Volleyball team won 3-0 against Glendale at the home game last Friday on Sept. 29. The team has now won 10 out of 14 games this season.

The Renegades won the first set against Glendale with the biggest lead of the game, scoring 25-9. Glendale’s team improved but still lost in the second set, with a score of 25-11. Glendale continued its steady improvement in the third and final set of Friday’s game, but the Renegades stayed consistent by scoring 25-15.

“I felt really good. We were having kind of a losing streak and now we came back and really showed what we can do, so I’m really proud of our team,” said setter Alanna Sikes, referring to the last three games that the volleyball team played and lost.

“I thought we were mentally ready to play tonight, and … that’s the first thing we talk about on a consistent basis, is winning in the mind before we step on the floor,” Coach Carl Ferreira said about the win. “I thought we were above average in our preparation and our energy level and then that leads into the skill and execution, and I thought we executed really, really well.”

The Women’s Volleyball team has 10 more games this season, beginning with an away game against Santa Monica on Oct. 4.
