    Have you Heard Yavapai College Volleyball is in the Championship

    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. 

    The Roughriders and Matadors face off on Wednesday, November 3, in Yuma, Arizona, at 7 p.m. with the winner heading to districts. The championship match will be streamed on GoRoughriders.com/Live

    The Matadors

    Arizona Western (the DI ACCAC Champions) went 16-7 overall in the regular season with a 10-3 mark in ACCAC contests. 

    The Roughriders

    Yavapai earned a 14-12 overall record during the regular season and went 8-5 in conference play. 

    Previous Matchups

    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.
