Winning Streaks for Mustangs


Joseph Johnson, Staff Writer

After enduring a two-game losing streak, the women’s volleyball team bounced back strong with a three-game winning streak.

The first two games of the winning streak were dominating wins beating both Napa Valley and Contra Costa 3-0.

This is a good look for the Mustangs with both of these teams being in the same Bay Valley Conference.

The dominating performance against rivals Contra Costa College put at a score of them 9-1 against their conference.

Contra Costa College looked dysfunctional as a team while the Mustangs took advantage throughout and won the first set 25-6.

As the second set began, the Comets were seeming to get things together within their group, but the Mustangs were already ahead of them with the momentum. Mustangs won with a comfortable lead the whole way through 25-14.

As the third and final set started to come into play, the Mustangs were full of confidence and had the Comets on their back heels playing defense the whole match. Despite trying to keep up with the Mustangs level of intensity, they couldn’t and the Mustangs cruised to the victory, winning the final set 25-12.

Some notable players from the game were No. nine Emily Sobolik with 12 total attempts (TA) and six kills and six digs. Amaya Mixon had 15 TA’s and six kills with three digs, and Sophia Corini with almost having a perfect game with four TA’s and five kills.

The Mustangs then had a tougher match on November 4, playing against Marin College and winning 3 games to 2.

During the first set, the match came down to the wire with both teams coming out strong and Marin College ended coming out on top winning 26-24.

From this point on,  the Mustangs knew this wasn’t going to be an easy match, unlike their previous two.

The second set began with LMC coming out strong, with an extra edge winning the second set, outscoring Marin College by 10 and winning 25-15.

The third set began and both teams came out competitive firing on all cylinders. Playing with an edge, this set came down to the wire with LMC getting the final edge, winning 26-24.

During the fourth set, both teams came out trying to come out on top. Competing at a high level against each other, Marin College came out on top 25-23.

The fifth set didn’t last very long with the top score ending at 15 and the Mustangs getting the edge on the game and winning the match. LMC got the better of the final set against a gritty Marin College, winning the finals 15-13, winning the match 3-2.
