The Delta College Volleyball team beat Folsom Lake College on sophomore night Nov. 10 in three sets (25-17,25-18, 25-20) at the Ernie Marcopulos Gymnasium to extend the team’s win streak to seven games.
The team honored all the sophomore players before the game with flowers while highlighting each of the team’s sophomore players individually.
With the win Delta College volleyball ends the year with a 21-3 record.
While Folsom Lake gave Delta some problems during the match, the Mustangs defense was too much for the Falcons.
The Falcons failed to win one set during the match.
“It felt really good, this is the best we played in a while. We had kind of a rough outing on Wednesday against Modesto so it was really nice to bounce back and to have a clean sweep, we really didn’t want to take them to four or five,” said No. 3 Avery Martin about the win.
Amilya Thompson finished the game with 11 kills and 12 digs, while Kylee Irwin-Paz finished with 10 kills.
Martin had 25 digs on the day.
Mika Fithian also had 30 assists on the night.
“We have improved over the week on blocking so much, but I think we can continue to work on blocking more,” said No. 5 Kylee Irwin-Paz.
The Delta College volleyball teams first test came in the Big 8 conference on Tuesday against Sierra College, a team the
Mustangs lost to in three sets earlier in the season.
All three sets in the earlier game were within five points.
Team members said it isn’t the same Delta team that lost to Sierra in early October. This team is more locked in defensively and are on a win streak.
“If we carry our energy that we had today into playoffs and continue to block as we did today we will be good going into the playoff,” said Martin prior to Tuesday.
Delta lost 3-2 five sets against Sierra College on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
