The Bakersfield College Women’s Volleyball team swept the Citrus College Owls, 3-0, on Oct. 2. BC remains undefeated in the Western State Conference (WSC).

Winning three straight matches with the scores of 25-13, 25-21, and 25-17, the Renegades are currently on a three-game winning streak and go 11-2 with overall wins.

The crowd roared as the Renegades gained each point and triumphed over the Owls.

“We are always ecstatic to play and to get out there. Wasn’t our best game but we got through it…when you are at a C level it’s tough to get to an A level, but we tried to do that every game,” said Carl Ferreira, Head Coach of the volleyball team, in an article for the BC Athletics website.

Sophomore Penelope Zepeda led the Renegades in kills with a total of 17 for all three games, while Jessica Merante, sophomore, recorded 18 digs for the night. Teammates Alyson Dees, freshman, and Lanie Camarillo, sophomore and one of Kern Schools’ Renegade of the week, tied with three blocks against Citrus College.

The Renegades head out on a two-game road trip, but will return for their next home game on Wednesday, Oct. 16 as they face Antelope Valley College.
