Delta volleyball stays hot


The Delta College volleyball team defeated Consumnes River College in three sets (25-19, 25-10, 25-14) at Marcopulos Gymnasium to keep the regular season going strong.

The Consumnes River College volleyball team (8-14, 1-12 Big 8) battled Delta’s women’s volleyball team (20-3, 12-1 Big 8), but failed to win a set against the Mustang’s defense.

The Mustangs showed up early to establish dominance and kept going throughout the whole match, which allowed the three-set win.

“I just try and get the girls to take it game by game and keep them focus and get them ready for a Big 8 Championship run,” said Head Coach Molly Mordaunt-Hummel.

Throughout the game there were questionable out of bound calls and net touching calls on both sides but Delta had the game well in control so that didn’t impact the outcome.

The Mustangs wanted to get this game over within three sets since this was the first game back-to-back.

“Since we are having a back to back from a reschedule against Santa Rosa since the tragedy with the fire, we are going to come in tomorrow watch video and come in and take care of business tomorrow, said Mordaunt-Hummel
