Volleyball earns first win

The California State University, Stanislaus volleyball team headed back to Turlock for their first home match of the regular season on Friday, but it wasn’t until Saturday that the Warriors would achieve their first win.

Friday night’s loss was served by Cal State Monterey Bay; however, the Warriors came back on Saturday night to beat Cal State East Bay.

Saturday’s game was the second consecutive time that the Warriors battled for a four-set match, but unlike Friday night they walked away with a win.

Of the four sets, the Warriors would win three of them. The first set was a close one as the Cal State East Bay Pioneers only trailed by two points.

The tables turned for the second set, and Stanislaus fell to the Pioneers 25 to 23.

The two sets that followed seemed to be easier for the Warriors as they took both by at least seven points to celebrate their first victory this season.

It might have taken seven games, but the chemistry seemed to finally settle in on Saturday as it was an entire team effort that contributed to the win.

It was a star-studded night for the sophomores on the team as Blair Erlich walked away with 16 kills; Lindsay Skadeland ended the night with 13 kills; Jocelyn Cervantes earned 11 kills and Paige Walker added another nine kills.

The freshmen wouldn’t be outshined as Rachel Parsons had 12 digs and libero Hailey Gruetzmacher added 21 digs of her own.

Not only did the team effort lead to the first win of the season, it was also a California Collegiate Athletic Association win as well. Although the game was an improvement, the team still only holds a 1-4 record for CCAA play.
