The Yavapai College volleyball team is set to take on the Arizona Western College Matadors (for the fourth time this season) in the NJCAA Division I Region I Championship match.
Arizona Western (the DI ACCAC Champions) went 16-7 overall in the regular season with a 10-3 mark in ACCAC contests.
Yavapai earned a 14-12 overall record during the regular season and went 8-5 in conference play.
The teams traded epic five-set duels in their first couple of meetings with Arizona Western emerging victorious in Yuma on September 24 followed by a Roughrider victory at home on October 20. The third meeting featured a much smoother four-set victory for Yavapai to close out the regular season on Sophomore Night.
Players To Watch
Freshman outside hitter Kierslynn Wright and sophomore middle blocker Paiten Langston both earned all-region honors this season while Wright also took home all-conference honors. Look for Wright to continue to lead the offense and Langston to continue to dominate at the net.
