Team effort leads Gauchos past 'ChokesFriday night, the GCC Volleyball team opened their 2007 campaign with an impressive straight set victory over Scottsdale. The Gauchos played well winning a tough match (30-26, 30-28, 30-26).
"It was a good way to start off our competitive season, and a good confidence boost." Gauchos head coach Lisa Stuck was pleased with the team effort throughout the contest. "We still have areas that we need to work on, and we are encouraged by a lot of what we saw during the match." The Gauchos had to battle hard with the 'Chokes in games two and three of the match to seal the victory. "The team showed a lot of perseverance in the second and third games," Stuck said, "It was a collective effort."
The Gauchos attack as Coach Stuck noted was well balanced. Sophomore Calli Scott (Pinnacle HS) had 22 assists; Freshman Brittney Clark (Mountain Ridge HS) had 10 kills and 18 assists. The Gauchos were strong at the net and on defense led by Sophomore, Alexa Ramirez (Cibola HS) with 12 digs.
