Bakersfield College beat LA Mission 3-0 in the women’s volleyball game on Oct. 13 in the BC gymnasium. The BC volleyball team has now won 14 out of 18 games this season. 
The Renegades started off strong, winning the first set 25-14. In the second set, BC scored a point with 25-12, the widest margin of the game. LA Mission improved in the third and final set, but still lost to Bakersfield College 25-18. 
The BC volleyball team racked up 34 kills to LA Mission’s 18.
“We wanted to have good energy, good communication with everybody. I think we had positive vibes the whole game,” said BC outside hitter Mandy Sangha of her team’s performance. 
“When we played for each other rather than when we were playing for ourselves is when we really switched up the game.”
Head Coach Carl Ferreira pointed out the higher than average amount of errors that his team made, which he attributed to either fatigue or mentality. Despite this criticism, Ferreira said,
“If you can win when you don’t have your cleanest execution, that’s a sign of a pretty good team.” 
There are six more games for the Women’s Volleyball team this season, with the next game scheduled on Oct. 20 at Bakersfield College against Canyons.
